Year 1

Welcome to our Year 1 page


Our topic this half term is 'Harwich to Haluabagalla'. 


The following term looks as follows:

In Maths we will be focusing on addition and subtraction to 20, place value to 50, length, height, weight and mass. 

In English, we will be looking closely at Harwich and Haluabagalla. We will be writing fact files about our town as well as sending letters to children in Africa. 

In RE we will be looking at symbols/ artefacts and what Christians say God is like.

Our Science is all based on materials. 

In Geography we will be comparing Harwich and Haluabaglla and in History we will be looking at how different our lives would be if we lived in Halaubaglla. 

We will be creating posters in Computing to show people in Haluaballga what life is like in Harwich. 

Our Art lessons will be based on African masks and in DT we will be creating seasonal fruit dishes from both locations. 


Due to the current situation we are still not able to send home reading books and diaries. Please continue to use the Oxford Owl website and  to read your own books at home. We will still be using class dojo, so please send me pictures and videos of your child reading for your child to receive dojo points. 


An extremely important part of Year 1 is Phonics, so please continue to practise your sounds, tricky words and alien words at home on a daily basis. There are some Phonics resources below to support with Phonics at home. 



All of our PE sessions this term will be taking place outside.  Our sessions are on Monday and Wednesday, so on these days, please can your child come to school dressed in their PE kit (preferably shorts with tracksuit trousers over the top due to the unpredictable weather). This term we will be looking at Dance and Gymnastics.
