Welcome to Year 1E



Welcome back to the Spring term! I hope you have all enjoyed your Christmas break. I am so pleased to see everybody back and we are all refreshed and ready for what will be a very busy term .


I will be in regular contact using Class dojo and I will use this to let you know what the children have been doing in class.




We will be reading a reading a range of Traditional Tales with a particular focus on Hansel and Gretel and Rapunzel.


Phonics and Guided Reading


We will be having daily phonic lessons as well as one to one reading and guided reading sessions.





This half term our focus will be on:


  • Ordinal numbers
  • Numbers to 20
  • Addition and Subtraction to 20.
  • 2D and 3D shapes.


We will also be learning foundation subjects: Geography, Science, Art, Music, PE, RE, RSE and Computing. Please see the Medium Term Plan below for more details.


 Home Reading Books


Reading books will continue to be changed every Friday. Please ensure that books are returned and in school on this day. 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.




Spellings will be linked to our phonics focus. They will be sent out every Friday to be returned the following Wednesday. 


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and ask me.


Mrs Ellis and Miss Chalice
