Welcome to Class 1’s page


Dear parents,

Happy New Year! A big thank you from all of the staff in Year 1, for our wonderful Christmas presents, letters and cards.

We have a very busy spring term coming up. Our first topic is ‘Space.’ The children will be completing work around the books ‘Beegu’ and ‘We’re off to Look for Aliens’ We will also be learning about space exploration and the planets. In science, we will be looking at materials, exploring their properties and the best materials for a particular job.

In the second half term, our topic is toys. We will be looking at toys from the past and present; discussing similarities and differences between them. In English, we will be focusing on the books ‘Blue Kangaroo’ and ‘The Everywhere Bear’ as well as reading and writing our own poems about spring. At the end of the term, we will be having a ‘Teddy Bears Picnic’ in the classroom.

Throughout the spring term, the children will extend their understanding of numbers; working up to 100. We will also be looking at length, capacity and mass.

To help your child progress, please ensure that they are reading as much as possible and that this is recorded in their reading record diary. Activities which can be covered during car journeys include counting in steps of 1, 2, 5 and 10, adding and subtracting numbers and learning the months of the year. To help your child in English, they could write one sentence each day, using their best handwriting, spaces between their words and a capital letter and a full stop.

Thank you for you continued support

Mrs Stannard and the Year 1 team
