Elstar Apple. 
The Elstar was parented by the Golden Delicious in the Netherlands in the 1950’s. It is a popular dessert eating apple and is widely grown across Europe. It’s skin is marbled, combining golden yellow with deep red. It’s lemon-white flesh is said to have the taste of honey. 



We would like to welcome you back after the October half term. We hope your children had a lovely break and you enjoyed the nice weather.  We have a busy term ahead with preparations for Christmas and we are looking forward to starting our new exciting topic.


Our topic this term is Superheroes! KERPOW! Intergalactic greetings, young heroes. It’s time to rescue the planet! Who’s your favourite Superhero? Spiderman? Wonder Woman? Maybe your heroes are ordinary people who’ve achieved great things. Superheroes have super senses. Use yours to identify mystery items using your sight, smell, taste, sound and touch. Are you a true Superhero?      


This term we will be using our Phonics and Reading skills to create descriptive sentences and comic strips about famous Superheroes and their special powers. In Art and DT, we will be designing our very own Superhero masks and logos, using our own imagination and powerful ideas. We will be learning about materials and their properties and investigating in Science. We will be looking at the famous historic heroes and villains.










A very warm welcome to Year 1!  We hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful sunny summer holiday and the children are excited to be starting their learning adventure in Key Stage 1.  We have had a fun few days with the class and they have all settled in well. 

Our topic this term is ‘People Who Help Us’ and we have some exciting visitors planned to engage the children in their learning.  If you have anything at home that the children would like to share with the class related to this topic, we would love to see it!
