Welcome to Year 1


Our amazing team...

Miss Jane Warner: Class Teacher

Mrs Wendy Studd: Teaching Assistant



Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely half term break. We have planned some exciting learning for this term. We would like to inform you about our topics this term; our Science topic is Plants and in History we will be looking at seaside. We will compare holidays in the past to holidays now. We also have our exciting trip to Felixstowe planned as well as our History Off the Page day.  In RE we are going to find out about the Jewish religion and have a go at making Challah bread. This term we are focusing on fractions, finding half and quarter of an amount. We will continue to learn our number facts to 20. Please find below the summer jigsaw, which is an overview of what your child will be learning this term. 


Thank you for your support with your child's reading. Our expectation is that each child will read at least four times a week. Please continue to write in your child's reading journal. If you would like any tips on how to help with home reading please let us know, we would be thrilled to help! We have sent out a homework pack including a homework book for you to record any learning at home. It will need to be completed by Wednesday 17th July.  


Just a reminder that P.E. takes place every Thursday afternoon and swimming every Wednesday morning. We expect the children to have full kit in school on these days. 


Please do not hesitate to catch us at the end of the school day if you have any questions/problems. Alternatively Helen and Wendy are on the door every morning and you can send us a message via them. 


Thank you so much for your continuing support.

We would like to keep you informed about the spellings we are focusing on every 2 weeks. We hope this will help you to support your child at home. The list of spellings can be found in the font of your child's Reading Diary/Journal. By the end of Year 1 the children are expected to spell and read these words.
