Year 1

Hello everyone,

We hope you had a refreshing half term with some time to relax ready for another term at school. We are really looking forward to the next term with the run up to Christmas! We are eager to start our fun filled half term with our trip to Yorkshire Wildlife Park! Stay safe and remember to keep warm as the weather starts to get colder.

PE Information

This year, your child’s PE lessons will be on a Monday morning and a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure that both indoor and outdoor kits are available for both days and please refer to the uniform policy to ensure the correct kit is worn.

Extended Learning

Your child will be expected to complete weekly tasks throughout year 1.

These will be:

  • Reading at home (at least 4 or more times-this will be recorded in school)
  • Spellings (x10 spelling words)
  • A project will be sent out each half term linking to our topic and the learning that has taken place


Our Autumn 2 topic is “Amazing Animals”. We will be starting this by looking at different animal groups which we will have to opportunity to explore at Yorkshire Wildlife Park, this will then follow on to learning about Herbivores, Omnivores and Carnivores. Our quality text “The tiger who came to tea” also links to our topic.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact any of the year 1 team.
