Big Question...What makes me amazing?

In our first term in Year 1 we will be learning all about ourselves. In English we will be looking at traditional tales with a focus on Jack and the Beanstalk. In Maths we will start by sorting and counting objects before moving onto finding one more and one less of a given number. We will be looking at our bodies in Science and how they work. We will also look at our senses and which part of the body they belong to. In Geography we will have a look at where we live and our local area. In Art we will begin looking at the colour wheel as well as the different techniques we can use when using a paint brush.

Important things to remember...

PE Kits

We will have PE twice a week. Please ensure your child brings their outdoor PE kit to school every Tuesday and comes to school in their  PE kit every Wednesday. This should include black jogging bottoms or leggings, white polo top and a black jacket for outdoor PE sessions. Please also ensure your child has appropriate sports shoes with velcro fastenings in their PE kit to change into. Please can all uniform and PE kit be labelled with your child's name.

Forest School

All children will be taking part in weekly Forest School activities to promote team building, communication and language and independence skills. Please ensure your child has a waterproof coat in school everyday as they will access our forest school even when it is raining! You may also wish to send in a pair or wellies to keep in school for your child to change into.

Reading Books

Your child's reading book will be changed every Wednesday. Please can you read with your child at home for 10 minutes every night and sign their reading record. This Reading Record needs to be brought into school every day in order to move up the troll tree. If you make it to the top of the troll tree by reading every day you will be entered into the prize draw to win a book in our celebration assembly.

Your child will also bring home a book to share with you as they will not be able to read it independently. 

Please respect our school books.


Each Friday your child will have a spelling test. The spellings will be sent home in their spelling book on Friday and will also be on Spelling Shed, your child will be given a log in for this during the first week back.
