Welcome to Year 1HW!


Welcome back everybody! It is so lovely to see you all back in school and ready to learn. This half term is going to be slightly different than usual but so exciting and we will do everything we can to ensure your children are safe and happy in school. 


Due to the unprecedented times we faced last year and the need for online learning, I am aware that many children may have missed vital learning. Therefore this first half term we will be reviewing the children's understanding of the Early Learning Goals, whilst also beginning to introduce new Year 1 learning.


Our topic this half term is All About Me and we will be finding out about ourselves, our bodies, our homes and where we live. 


In Literacy, we are reading The Tiger who came to Tea and the Mog stories by Judith Kerr as our main texts.


We will be writing labels and captions as well as creating story maps and our own story based in a familiar setting. We will also be have 2 phonic lessons a day as well as daily one to one reading and guided reading sessions.


In Numeracy, we will be learning all about place value and one more and one less. We will also be investigating number bonds finding out more about addition and subtraction within 10.


Please visit this page regularly as it will be updated with photos of our work and links to aid learning. 



Children will not require their PE kits for the Autumn term due to the change of uniform policy. Our PE session will be on a Tuesday afternoon so please send your children in the appropriate clothing and footwear. PE will predominantly happen outside (weather permitting).


Home Reading Books

Reading books will be changed every Friday. Please ensure that books are returned and in school on this day. Reading book, upon return, will be quarantined for 72 hours before they will be recirculated. It is important that your child reads every day. This can be done independently or with the help of an adult or older sibling. Please also ask the children questions about their book to check their understanding.
