In Year 1 we work on the transition from the more play-based curriculum in reception to working from the National Curriculum. We are busy growing our brains and becoming more independent learners.  We take pride and aim high every day. This year we are going to be looking at 3 main topics of: 

  • Problem with plastic
  • War and Peace
  • What's on our doorstep? 

These are projects that the whole school have taken on and they teach children about environmental issues that are currently affecting the world, how we can make the world a safer and more respectful place and about our locality. 


Children are given a reading book to read at home. They should read as often as possible and return books to be swapped. We will monitor this over the half term and we will give children harder books as and when they are needed and relating to the Phonics they are learning. Each term, children will also be given Pack Types homework to work on as a project. Your child can do as much of this as they like and they record pictures of what they have done in their homework books. This can be sent in at any time over the term and it will be shared with other children in class. Other Phonics games may be sent home throughout the terms for children to play at home. 


Spellings will be sent home after half term. The children will have 5 words to learn and spell. These words will most likely be tricky words that they might be finding difficult in their writing. 


PE Kits

Please ensure your children have their PE kits in every day as the days that we do PE will be changing often. 

Swimming kits will be needed in the Spring term on a Monday 



Here are some links to websites and games you could use at home.
