Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Free School Meal Voucher Scheme. Read More
As you will now be aware the Government has announced a plan for students to return to school over a phased period. These timescales are open to possible change given the rate of infection in the country. We are currently working to plan for return of pupils and we will ensure that you are updated as soon as possible. We reassure you that the health and wellbeing of you and your children will be at the front of our plans

Welcome to Year 1!

In Year 1 we cover some really exciting topics, including Toys, Pirates, and South America.

In our Toys topic, we share and talk about the toys we have today and compare these from toys of the past. We learn about how toys change over time and what life was like in the past. In the run up to Christmas, we unleash our creativity by designing toys, putting on shows and, of course, writing letters to Santa!

In our Pirates topic we take to the seas and begin to build our geographical knowledge, learning about the different oceans some pirates might have sailed and the countries they visited. We look at famous pirates, write messages in a bottle, learn some sailing songs and create treasure maps.

During our South America topic, we move onto warmer climates and learn about the rainforest and the different animals that live there. We have the opportunity to learn about and explore new and exciting foods and follow recipes.

Every week, we send homework out on a Friday to help consolidate what we have learning in class, to be returned by the following Wednesday. From the Spring term onwards, we will also receive spelling lists to be tested on in the following week.

Each day we enjoy phonics sessions, mental number-work and guided reading activities to continually practise and become fluent in our basic skills. Reading books are changed weekly.

Every child has the opportunity to take part in our Christmas production, class assemblies and Inspire workshops.
