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. We know you’ll be back with lot 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!

Mr Bunn and Mrs Bright

PE Information

This year, your child’s PE lessons will be on a Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning. 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)
  • Spelling assignments on Spelling Shed (login details are in your child’s reading diary)
  • A project will be sent out each half term linking to our topic and the learning that has taken place.


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 a teddy bear and deciding which material is best to keep him dry. In geography we will be looking at human and physical features and will be developing our fieldwork skills.

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