Welcome to Year 1E


Welcome back to the Autumn Term! I hope you have all enjoyed your Summer break. I am so pleased to see everybody and I will to do everything I can to ensure your children are safe and happy in school. 


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.




In Literacy, we are reading Mog The Forgetful Cat and The Tiger who came to Tea by Judith Kerr as our key texts.



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




In Numeracy, we will be investigating place value, including counting forwards and backwards, ordering and sequencing numbers as well as finding the greatest and smallest numbers. We will also be finding one more and one less. 


We will also be investigating number bonds and addition calculations.



Children will not be required to bring their PE kits into school for Autumn 1. They will be able to wear their PE kit to school on the day of P.E. Our P.E. session will be on a Tuesday afternoon so please send your children in the appropriate P.E. kit. This consists of:


  • Black tracksuit bottoms, black leggings or black shorts.
  • Red T-shirt.
  • Black trainers or pumps.


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. 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.


Please visit this page regularly as it will be updated with details of the children's learning and links to support their learning. Take a look at our planning documents to find out more about what we will be learning this year.


I'm looking forward to a really good year.


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


Mrs Ellis and Miss Chalice
