ST PAUL'S YEAR 1A massive welcome to all the children in Year 1

We hope that you have had a wonderful summer and are feeling excited for the year ahead. Our new topic for the autumn term is called ‘What if we could go back in time?’ which has a History focus. The children will be exploring their own family, including family trees, how they have changed from babies to now and special family events. We will also be exploring toys that family members may have played with in their childhood and beyond to Victorian times. They will have the opportunity to visit St Johns Museum in Warwick to explore and play with Victorian toys and tour the museum and Victorian classroom.
