Welcome to Year 1 - Autumn 1

We are so excited to see you all back in school and have lots of fun activities planned. Our learning will be a balance of adult-led and provision-based learning, both indoors and out.

We begin our year with the topic of The United Kingdom. We will explore the 4 countries of the UK and their capital cities. We will also explore key landmarks and features of East Bierley and compare these to other areas in the UK. This topic will also underpin our learning in English. We will continue with our phonics sounds and will begin to apply these to write simple labels, captions and sentences.


Spelling Shed and MyMaths homework will be set weekly. Please also continue to access Numbots at home. These platforms are most effective when completed in short bursts throughout the week. Log ins for these will be sent home shortly.

Also ensure your child is reading their home reading book and that you comment within their reading records. Books will be changed weekly but can be changed more frequently if required.


Our PE days will be Wednesday and Friday. Please come to school wearing your PE clothes, with long hair tied up and earrings removed.
