Famous People

Each half term we have a famous person to inspire our learning. We have chosen, musicians, explorers, scientists, authors, athletes and artists. Through our learning we will see that anything is possible with hard work, resilience, passion and a love of learning.

Famous People Who Have Inspired Our Learning

Author of the Month

Each month we will have a different author. By introducing the children to different authors, we will widen their interests in many different characters and stories. 

Our Year 1 Authors

Every month we pick a different author. By the end of Year 1 the children would have listened to stories or  poems by 10 different authors. They would have experienced 10 authors in F2, then in Year 2, they learn about another 10 authors. This opens our children's eyes to different authors and genres.
