Welcome to Year One


Our PE days are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Please come to school on these days dressed in your PE kit. Please also ensure long hair is tied back and earrings are removed before school.


Online homework will be set on a Friday each week on MyMaths and Spelling Shed. Aim to go on Spelling Shed regularly throughout the week and MyMaths by the following Friday. If you found any of the questions trickier on MyMaths, you are able to try again, with a slight change of questions to try and improve your percentage score. Try to aim for 75% or above. Activities will be shared with children each Friday so they are aware of what is set. Please also continue to access Numbots to reinforce key number facts. You may also wish to take a look at TTRockstars as we begin to count in 2s, 5s and 10s in class.

In addition to these online platforms, there are 6 assignments set on Teams. Please choose and complete at least 4 of these over the course of the half-term. Some will link to our current learning and some will act as pre-learning for future weeks. You can find these attached as separate assignments. You could attach photos, videos or word documents and hand these in for us to take a look at in class. The children really look forward to taking a look at what has been sent in and enjoy discussing what they have been up to at home.

Autumn 1

Welcome to Year 1!   

We are excited to have you all back in school and beginning our fun learning! 

For our first Maths topic this term we are looking at sorting objects and the different ways these can be grouped together. For our English learning we are looking at forming short sentences making sure we use full stops, capital letters and finger spaces all in the correct spaces. We are continuing with our phonics this year which is a key part of our learning journey. We are continuing following the ELS scheme. Reading books will be swapped every Friday for the children to bring home. Please ensure reading books are brought into school every day as we will be hearing readers throughout the week.  

Our first curriculum topic is ‘The History of Shopping’. We will start off by looking at the definition of ‘the past’ and look at how shopping has changed within living memory, comparing the changes from when our parents and grandparents were younger. During this learning we will look at the differences and development of toys over time. For our art lessons this term we are focusing on spirals, we will look at the different colours that can be used and the different ways we use our bodies to create pieces of art. PE kit will need to be worn on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and just a small reminder that earrings are not allowed during PE times.  

We are looking forward to our first term together!
