They will be developing their scientific investigation skills when continuing to explore materials and their properties.

 This term the children will be learning about the history of toys and how they have changed over time. They have begun by exploring a range of toys from different eras and created an Egg Box Dragon using junk modelling materials.They will be continuing to develop their knowledge of toys and the materials they

Year 1 have set off to a great start this term with the mysterious crash landing of a spaceship to investigate. They had a great time exploring the scene and searching for clues.

They will be continuing to learn about the alien creature 'Beegu' and thinking about what makes

them unique and special.  









This term we have already had fun writing poems about the sounds we here in different places. After book week we will be beginning to learn about an African-American story called 'The Sweetest Song' from the book 'The  Story Tree'. We will making predictions, exploring the charters and creating storyboards.

During multiplication lessons they will be continuing to learn to count and multiply in 2s, 5s and 10s and will be introduced to an online resource 'Times Tables Rockstars'(TTRS). Watch out for the children TTRS logins they will be coming home soon.

We look forward to your support in helping the children to practise. 





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.  


Race To Read

Thank you for your support in helping develop your child's reading skills. It is wonderful to see their progress and enjoyment.

The children are enjoying gaining stickers on their class Race to Read chart.  Every day they read at home brings them a step closer to their next certificate. 

The race is on! 



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

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




Year 1 will be taking part in a gymnastics and a games lesson each week. 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 have been enjoying borrowing books 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 continue to receive phonics and times tables home learning each week.  They will receive these on Friday and they need to be returned by the following Wednesday.   

Children will also receive 6 spelling words based on the phonics and tricky words they have been practising that week.  They will have a spelling quiz the following Thursday.


To encourage your child's progress with  phonics and times tables please find some useful links with suitable games and activities.


Thank you for your support.
