Year 1

Welcome to our Year 1 page!

Spring Term


Welcome back. We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!


We have a very exciting term ahead of us. Within literacy, we will be starting by looking at and re-writing Red Riding Hood. Within maths, our first subjects are addition and subtraction and place value to 50. In science we will learn about different materials and their properties, while taking part in some very exciting practical activities! Within Geography we will be looking at our location and we will begin to use compass directions. In Religious Education, we will be learning about incarnation.


Our PE lessons are on Monday and Wednesday where we will be carrying out dance and games lessons. PE lessons do require all pupils to have their full PE kits with trainers or plimsolls. Earrings must be removed before they come into school on these days and hair will need to be tied back for safety.


It would be fantastic if parents and guardians could listen to their child read at home and sign this in their Reading Record books as often as possible. This will support with their learning and increase their confidence when reading. The children still have an exciting opportunity to collect certificates in our reading challenge which is carried out throughout the school.
