Year 1 2021 - 2022

Miss Ginty

Miss Upton

Welcome to Year 1!


Welcome to year 1, we are so excited to welcome all the children back for Autumn Term. The year 1 teachers are Miss Ginty (1G) and Miss Upton (1U). The Teaching Assistants are Miss Rocque (1G) and Miss Jones (1U).

What we are learning this half term:

In Maths, we are learning all about numbers to 10 and in English we are going to be reading and exploring the story of Owl Babies.

In Science, we will be learning about different materials. In Geography, we are going to be answering the enquiry question ‘What is it like where we live?’ and learning all about the local area. (Top Tip: have a look at our knowledge organisers for science and geography to find lots of interesting facts about our new topics).


The children will take part in weekly P.E. lessons.

1G will have P.E. on Friday.

IU will have P.E. on Wednesday.

Children must come to school in their P.E. kits (white top, black trousers/shorts/leggings and appropriate trainers). Please make sure your child comes into school with the correct PE kit.

Homework and Spellings

For homework, please complete the short activity set in homework books each week. Spellings will be sent home on Friday and children will be tested on their spellings the following Friday. Please support your child in practising their spellings throughout the week. This could be by spelling the words out loud, writing them in their books and applying them into a sentence.


The children will be given a reading book to read at home every week. These will be given out on Mondays and needs to be returned on Fridays. We expect children to be reading at least 3 times a week at home to an adult.

They will also be given a reading record to record when they have read to an adult at home. Please sign the reading record when you have read at home with your child, or if they have read independently. 

You can also access free e-books using MyOn: Logins for MyOn will be sent home with your child.


In year 1, we have daily phonics lessons. To support your child with phonics, see the phonics page on the website for games and websites you can use.

Home learning policy

If your child needs to isolate in year 1,  work will be set each day on google classroom instead of tapestry. Logins and further information on how to access google classroom will be sent home with your child in the coming weeks.

General guidance

To help your child become more independent in year 1, you could practise covering mouths when sneezing, using a tissue, tying shoes, putting on coats, doing up zips and using a knife and fork.

If you need any support or guidance throughout the year, you can contact your class teacher via the class email address: /

Thank you!
