Year 1

A warm welcome to Year 1! I’m sure your child is ready to learn and have fun!

Please remember it is important to read with your child at home and help them practice their spellings. Spellings will be tested on a Wednesday. PE will continue to be on a Tuesday.

This half term our new topic is Paws, Claws and Whiskers. We will be focusing on the story ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance’. We will be reading and sequencing events, writing descriptions, predictions and a retell from the story. We will also be writing lists, labels and captions including entering text on the computers in Computing as well using Google Earth to find Zoos in the UK.

In Art, we will be looking at collections, paintings and sculptures of animals, as well as making animal prints. In Geography, the children will learn the names of the continents and find big cat habitats on a map. In our Science lessons we will investigate different animals and sort them into similarities and differences.

In Maths, we will continue to work on writing numbers and counting and also adding and subtracting within 20. We will also be counting in 2s, 5s and 10’s. We are learning quick arithmetic facts by adding on amounts within 10 mentally.

Year 1’s class book: Giraffes Can’t Dance



P.E. will be every Tuesday, so ensure your child has their full P.E. kit in school. Please ensure hair is tied up and earrings are taken out on this day.

Homework Tasks: Please bring a school bag into school every day with your child’s reading book and word box. On Wednesdays, your child will write their spellings in their yellow book which is to stay at home to practise. They will be tested the following Tuesday in school.

To support children’s reading development at school, it is important for you to read with them at home; reading books will be sent home with a reading diary. As well as the reading books sent home, it is essential for children to build up an interest for reading by selecting books of their choice such as visiting the local library.

If you have any questions or queries or want to discuss any issues regarding your child, please do not hesitate to come and speak to us.
