Year 1

Hello and a Happy New Year, welcome back.

We hope you had a lovely Christmas and are ready to return back to school with lots of motivation ready for the Spring term after a brilliant start to the school year. We’re really looking forward to seeing you back. Please 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 Thursday afternoon 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 Spring 1 topic is Everyday materials. We will be looking at properties of materials and how this makes them fit for their purpose. We will be designing an umbrella for teddy and deciding which material is best to keep him dry. In geography we will be looking at human and physical features of the world and making a collage based on the work of Henri Matisse in Art.

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