Year 1

Hello everyone,

We hope you had a lovely summer break filled with sunshine. We are really looking forward to welcoming you into year 1, and we know you will all be joining us with lots of motivation and determination, ready for your first half term in year 1. Stay safe and remember to keep washing your hands! Mrs Drury and Miss Wilson.

PE Information

This year, your child’s PE lessons will be on a Tuesday morning and a Friday 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

For extended learning, your child will be expected to complete weekly tasks. These will be:

  • Reading at home (at least 4 or more times-this will be recorded in school)
  • Spellings (x6 spelling words and x3 year 1 common exception words)
  • Extended Learning Grid, please choose one activity per week. Homework completed can be brought in to school or a photograph can be shared via the class email.


Our Autumn 1 term theme is “Toys”. We will be looking at toys from the past, the Victorian era, and comparing these with toys from the modern day. The children will have the opportunity to play with different types of toys during our WOW event which will be an afternoon session playing games and with toys old and new.

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