Year 1

Welcome to Year 1




Happy New Year!


We hope you all had a restful and fun holidays.


Our Learning for Spring 1 is ‘Mind Up!’

The learning rationale is ‘Understanding my thoughts and feelings.’ Throughout this term, the children will learn about the different parts of the brain and how it affects our thoughts, feeling and behaviour. They will also develop a range of vocabulary to describe their feelings and simple strategies for managing their feelings.


In English, they will be discussing text, responding to simple questions orally and writing a short narrative about an experience.


In maths, they will add and subtract 1 and 2-digit numbers to 20, including zero and solve one-step problems that involves addition and subtraction. They will also explore and investigate 2D and 3D shapes, measure a range of objects and compare their measures.


In Science, they will be exploring and investigating a range of 'Animals,' where they will sort animals into groups according to their features and describe them using scientific vocabulary.


At the end of this topic, they will share a Beautiful Outcome of affecting positive change-Peer mediation Project. A more detailed information about this project will be shared during the term.






Autumn 2 Beautiful Outcome: Performance: The Nativity



Our Education: The Greatest Stories Ever Told

Learning Rationale: "Developing a Love for story"


This term, we have read and listened to a range of stories including stories from other cultures and a popular story titled 'The Nativity' written by Gemma Barder.


This story is about the birth of a special baby called Jesus.

After reading the story, we discussed the events that happened including the significance of the gifts brought to the baby Jesus. This reminded us of how special we are to our families as they always give us gifts on special occasions. 


The story was so interesting that we decided to find different ways to retell to the rest of the school and our families.


Look at us below retelling the story 'The Nativity.'

We hope you enjoy watching us.

Transition into Year 1


A message from our Wonderful Teachers


Our aim


We aim to ensure that all children experience a smooth and seamless transition from the Early Years Foundation Stage to Key Stage 1, thereby building on the foundations that the National Curriculum depends on.

Learning through play will continue to be part of the school day and the children will steadily move into formal learning as the year progresses so that they remain motivated, enthused and passionate about their learning.

Welcome to Year 1





A big THANK YOU...

This year, we all settled fabulously into our new classes after a long time away for most of us. Everybody worked so hard during the Autumn term despite the changes and by the end of term, we were running as a well-oiled machine.

In January, we all have to learn from home again, but all the children and parents showed resilience and persevered in spite of the challenges that came with lockdown.

With a great support of families, all children were able to return to school ready to continue their learning journey. Just incredible!!


As the year draws near, we will like to say a big THANK YOU to all our families for working so hard during this academic year, ensuring that the children stayed on track and enjoyed their learning.

Our Year 1 children are a delightful group and the Year 2 Team will be lucky to have them.


We wish you a restful summer holiday!


The Year 1 Teamsmiley


Dear Children,


Each day, your teachers will be teaching you reading, writing, maths and a foundation subject live on Teams. In each session, you'll have the opportunity to ask questions to clarify your thinking and understanding. Tasks will be set on each subject for you to complete during the live teaching and your feedback will confirm your understanding of what you've learnt.

The tasks for each day will be displayed on the Year Group page for you to refer and consolidate daily.


 All learning MUST be recorded in your Home Learning book and shared with your class teacher on Seesaw. Your teacher will respond to one Seesaw post, per subject each day.


   Things we expect to see in your home learning books:

  • All learning tasks completed daily. 
  • Only begin a new page when you have finished the one you are on.
  • Write the short date for reading, maths and foundation subjects and long date for writing activities. Underline your date with a ruler.
  • Write the LO and SC and underline with a ruler.
  • Fabulous handwriting-all letters and numbers in your writing formed correctly.
  • Keep your learning neat and presentable, but most of all TRY YOUR BEST!


Class teachers will visit BUG Club regularly to view your activity report and allocate more books. Also, weekend maths home learning will be set on Mymaths for you to complete.

If you have any questions about home learning, kindly send a message to your class teacher on Seesaw.



Our Beautiful Outcomes

Autumn Home Learning

This year, we are going to try and keep our home learning online as much as possible, to minimise the amount of resources that need to be taken to and from school. In the folders below, you will be able to find your weekly home learning activities which you can complete in your home learning books. This can then be shared with us via Seesaw (we will get this up and running soon). 

Our aim


To ensure that all children experience a smooth and seamless transition from the Early Years Foundation Stage to Key Stage One, thereby building on the foundations that the National Curriculum depends on.

Learning through play will continue to be part of the school day and the children will steadily move into formal learning as the year progresses so that they remain motivated, enthused and passionate about their learning.

RWI Phonics


We have started RWInc Phonics lessons and all the children are excited about learning to read in a fun way. The children will complete reading and writing activities for 45 minutes to 1 hour each day. They have been grouped according to their reading needs, so classes will be mixed and taught by different "reading teachers."



How can I help my child at home?


  •  Establish a routine to include reading regularly throughout the day and the week. 
  •  Have fun with the Fred talk at home e.g. where is your b-a-g?
  •  Encourage your child to “Fred Talk” any unfamiliar words 
  • Recognise “red words” together- “Remember you can’t Fred a red! “ 
  • Read as many stories to your child as you can. Traditional tales, stories from other cultures, poetry, their favourite story; talk about the stories with them 
  •  Explain the meaning of new words. 


 Most importantly show the fun that can be gained by listening to stories!
