The Year 1 teachers are really looking forward to working with the new parents and children this year. So far we have had an excellent start back and are really looking forward to the exciting learning that will be taking place! 

Again, practising maths skills at home will help with the work done in school. If you need any ideas or guidance the teachers will be happy to help.

Please check our Year 1 area on the website and Google Classroom for regular updates. If you have any questions about the learning taking place this half term, please speak to your child’s class teacher.

Thank you

Autumn 1

In English we will be writing about ourselves. We will be thinking about what we want to write; using our ideas to put words into sentences. We will be focusing on using finger spaces, full stops and capital letters.

We will be doing lots of reading in Year 1 so it is important that we read every day at home and practise our phonics and High Frequency Words- these will be sent as weekly homework. Learning our phonics sounds will be a huge focus for us this year. Learning our sounds will help us to read and write. 

In class we will be reading every day, following the Daily Supported Reading (DSR) programme.



In science we will be identifying and labelling parts of a body and learn about our senses through fun experiments such as taste tests and listening activities.

In maths we will be practising our counting forwards and backwards and learning more about place value focusing on addition up to 20. We will be exploring maths with the use of lots of different resources that can help us such as numicon, multilink cubes, counters and number lines.









Year 1 Victorian Day 

In history, we have been learning about school in Victorian times. We have been looking at how school was different in the past compared to how it is now.

To help bring our learning to life we had a visit from the Rainbow Theatre. Here are some pictures from the performance and what we learnt.
