Welcome to Year 1!

We are excited to start our Spring term and get stuck into our new topics. In Science we will be learning about the seasons and different types of weather. In Gepgraphy we are learning about our local area and settlements. We will be going on a walk around our local area and finding out what it was like and how children lived in the past in History. Please see the attached our science and geography knowledge organisers with all of the facts we will be learning in our topics. 

This term we are learning our number bonds to 10 as our maths number facts. See attached the overview of 'Year 1 Maths Number Facts' to find out what facts your child will be learning in each term in year 1 and how you can support them with this. 


Children will need to wear their PE kits every Thursday in 1B and every Wednesday in 1J. Please make sure that this is clearly named and they have black trainers or pumps on. Children also need their school jumpers and coats clearly named.


All of the children are given home reading books to read at home. Books are changed three times a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday in 1J and Monday, Tuesday and Thursday in 1B). Please make comments about your child’s reading and sign your child’s home reading diary when you read with them. We would appreciate it if you could continue to listen to your child reading at home for 10 minutes per night and ask your child questions about the text your child has read. Having an adult or older sibling listen to them reading will benefit your child immensely and help them to make excellent progress in reading and writing. Home reading diaries are excellent ways of communicating progress/concerns regarding your child’s reading between parents/guardians and staff in school and we continue to look forward to using them effectively with you. 


May we remind you that homework is given out on a Friday and should be handed in on a Tuesday at the latest. We encourage children to go on Lexia and Mathletics at home on a weekly basis to support their learning at school.


Many thanks
