​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to Year 1


​Class Teacher - Mr Pierce

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Hartley





This half term we are looking at traditional tales. We will be reading a range of stories from different countries.  We will be learning about the origins of traditional tales and the meanings and morals they teach. ​

We will also be creating animal fact files and writing poems about our bodies and senses.
We are currently focusing on phonics catch-up and recapping previous letters and sounds taught during reception.

This half term we are looking at counting to ten and number bonds to ten. ​Children will be learning to count up to ten and back down to zero. They will also learn to count objects and compare them using mathematical terms such as 'greater than', 'less than' and 'equal'.

We are also focusing on number recognition. We are helping children to identify different numbers and write them correctly. 


Our topic this half term is Super Duper Me!

Children will be learning  about lots of different things relating to themselves such as their bodies, how they work and how they are different to animals, their school and the places they live. 



​​Things to Remember

Wednesday is our PE day. Children should come to school in their PE kits until further notice. Kits consist of black shorts, a white t-shirt and black pumps.

Homework and spellings are given out on a Friday. Spellings are tested on a Thursday. We would appreciate it if homework and spellings could be back in school by Wednesday, so that homework can be marked and new homework can be put in ready for Friday. 

Reading Books
Children will take home a book chosen by the teacher. Please could you write a comment in your child's white reading diary once they have read to you. Reading books will be sent home on a Monday and should be returned to school on a Friday so they can be isolated.

Please could you write your child's name in all of their uniform and PE kits​.
