Term 3


Blast Off!


The children have begun term 3 and our 'Blast Off!' topic by thinking about adventures and exploration. They had great fun on the entry day creating imaginary lands and  pretending they were on an expedition. 

Throughout this term they will be learning about real life explorers including Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus and how they have influenced the world. 





This term we will be learning about the story 'How to Catch a Star'. We will be making predictions and continuing to develop our writing skills through writing stories.


We will also be learning how to be a reporter and create reports about Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus.  





In Term 3 the children will be continuing to develop their knowledge of numbers, addition and subtraction, before moving on to extend their knowledge of learning about shapes and patterns. They will also develop skills in measuring length and height.

Thank you for all your support in helping the children to practise their times tables, we are  very proud of  their progress so far. This term (Term 3) we will continue to develop confidence in multiples of 2 and 10 as well as beginning to learn the 5 times table. 





In Year One we encourage the children to read everyday and the home school reading books MUST come into school everyday even if they have not finished the book.  

The children have the opportunity to change their reading book everyday and we will keep you updated when your child has read with an adult in school.  We really value your comments, so please sign and comment whenever your child has read a book.  If you would like to keep the book a little longer or revisit it at a later time, please let us know.  


ERIC Time (Everyone Reads In Class) will continue every Friday afternoon.  To encourage and inspire the children to enjoy reading, all children and adults in class will be reading at this time.

 ERIC TIME has been a great success across the school and we look forward to continuing to inspire a love of reading this term . 



This term the children are very excited to use the school swimming pool. They will also take part in a games lesson each week so we would like children to keep their full kit in school at all times.  This should include shorts, t-shirts and plimsolls and jogging bottoms.

Please can all items of uniform be clearly named, this includes PE kit.  Children find it very hard to identify their own tie or jumper!  




The children will be able to borrow a book from our school library each week.  Please could you ensure the book is well looked after and returned every week.

If you have any queries or would like further information, please do not hesitate to ask the Year 1 team.


Thank you.





The children will be receiving a reading comprehension and a phonics activity sheet each week.  They will receive these on Friday and they need to be returned by the following Wednesday.  On Mondays the children will receive times tables to practise which they will be tested on each Friday. In year 1 we focus on multiples of 2, 10 and 5 and the children can progress through a bronze, silver and gold challenge for each.

 Please note that we do not give spelling words each week, instead they will receive a list of tricky words at the start of each term.
