Important class information

PE: This takes place on a Tuesday afternoon with Mrs Mortimer and Miss Usher. Please send your child with their PE kits in a named bag so they can get changed before the PE lesson. Please remove all jewellery and ensure long hair (boys and girls) is tied back. 

Autumn term will be dance and gymnastics inside, so please send a white t shirt and black shorts. They will do the lessons in bare feet. 

Reading: Please listen to your child regularly, at least 3 times a week, and record this in their reading record. Reading is about listening to your child, their fluency and their understanding, so please ask lots of questions and discuss the books together.

We are following the Little Wandle phonics scheme in school. In school I will listen to your child read a decodable book 3 times a week. This book will be sent home on a Friday to read with parents, grandparents, aunts or uncles! Your child will also bring home a 'book to enjoy', this is to read with support and help from you. There will be some challenging words, so please read it together and enjoy. 

We also visit the library on a Friday so your child can choose a book to bring home and enjoy. 

Homework: This will be given out on a Friday and will need to be completed and returned on a Thursday.

Spellings: These are linked with the phonics and spelling rules your child is learning. They are handed out on a Friday and need to be returned on a Thursday. Please learn these at home.

Things to bring to school: * Water bottle * Named jumper/cardigan *Reading book and record * Named coat (weather appropriate) *Homework/spellings on Thursday

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. 

David Attenborough – A living history!

This half term we dive into the living legend that is, David Attenborough.


We shall look at David Attenborough’s wonderful commentary and research different wild animals. After that, we will write our own animal descriptions to read out loud as our own commentary. Then, we will write a biography about David Attenborough’s life.


In phonics we will continue to grow our knowledge in our daily phonics lessons. In addition, we will continue to read 3 times a weekly in school. This will support our fluency, understanding and love for reading. The Year One children will also be preparing for the Phonics Screening test.


In the summer term we shall continue to have daily maths lessons. This term we will investigate multiplication, division and fractions as well as addition, subtraction and shapes. We will challenge ourselves daily with our problem solving questions.


This term in science we will be investigating plants. As well as setting up experiments we will be planting our own plants and learning about all the parts of the plants and their function.


Art will see us creating art inspired art. First we will look at different animal prints and investigate using different materials to create a background. Then we will use shading and different pencil strokes to draw an animal linked to the animal print.


During our French lessons will be learn and recap some different greetings. By the end of the term we will be able to say different greetings such as hello, goodbye and how are you in French.

Below are some photos of our exciting learning.
