Year 1

Welcome to Year 1.

Welcome back to school and I hope that you all had a nice relaxing break.

This term we will be looking at counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s, finding halves and quarters of shapes, division and sharing, recapping on adding and subtracting, place value, and lots more.

We will be learning about plants and how they function as well as finding out about mini-beasts, where they live and what they need to survive.

In English we will be revising all of our phonics sounds and will be learning all about homophones, near homophones, prefixes, suffixes and speech marks.

In RE we will be learning about Pentecost and spreading the good news about Jesus.

Year 1 Yellow will continue to have PE on a Monday morning and a Thursday afternoon. Year 1 Blue will continue to have PE on a Thursday morning and Friday afternoon, so please ensure that all PE bags are back in school. This term we will be doing tennis and practising for sports day, which will be later in the year.

Please could you make sure that your child has their reading books, monkey diaries and tricky words in their book bags every day. We will also continue to collect in the home learning journeys every other Monday.

We also request that all children bring in a named water bottle to have in the classroom. These will be sent home every Friday and need to be returned every Monday.

If there are any problems during the term please do not hesitate to come and talk to us or send us a message on Dojo.
