Year 1



Today, we had a wonderful experience learning about African music. We were able to have a go with lots of musical instruments and participate in singing African songs and dance. 

Spring 1

Welcome back!


We hope you had a wonderful Christmas break and spent lots of valuable time together.


Our topic this half term is ‘Around the World’. We will be focusing on continents and countries, in particular Australia. We will be looking at Australian landmarks and the differences between physical and human features. Continuing with this theme, we will be exploring the book ‘Wombat goes Walkabout’ in English and writing our own narratives. In Science, we will be learning about the different animal groups and carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. The knowledge organisers and curriculum map are attached to give further information.


The homework sheet for this half term is also attached. We will be changing reading books on a Monday and Thursday. Please make sure reading is recorded in the reading records. We will not change books if they haven’t been read. As the children get further into Year One, the books become longer. Do not worry about reading a whole book at a time. We won’t change them if they are not finished. Spelling quizzes will be on a Monday and Maths homework is also due on Mondays.


P.E will be on a Monday and Friday. Please make sure children have their kits on those days. It is handy to have them in school all of the time if possible. If you would like your child to take their kit home to wash, please remind them before coming into school.

Please make sure your child has an art apron in school.


I am really looking forward to seeing you all and exploring this exciting topic. As always, if you have any questions or worries throughout the half term, please email me or catch me on the door.


Best wishes,

Miss Light J


Autumn 2

Our topic next half term is ‘Let There Be Light’. We will be looking at daily weather and seasonal changes within Science and Geography. In English, we will be writing poetry linked to fireworks and a persuasive leaflet for a new Christmas theme park, which we will create. Maths and Phonics will continue on from Autumn 1. We will continue with addition and subtraction, and then move onto shape. Within our Art sessions, we will focus on colour and Kandinsky.


P.E will continue to be on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Please make sure your child has their P.E kit in school. Reading books will continue to be changed on Tuesdays and Fridays. Maths and Spelling homework will be set from the first Monday back. Below are any documents you might need.

 I hope you have a wonderful final week and enjoy your well-earned break. Don’t eat too many sweets this Halloween! J


Gressenhall Trip 

On Thursday, Year One and Two visited Gressenhall for a trip based around our 'Once Upon a Time' theme. We cleaned the laundry with the 'Ugly Sisters', we tried to find the glass slipper with Cinderella and went on a fairy tale trail around the farm. We were lucky enough to go on the tractor and have a potion making class with the Wicked Witch. In addition, we climbed the beanstalk with Jack and looked at the mysterious curiosities with the Curator. All in all, we had a fabulous time! :)

Growth Mindset 

We discussed that we need to have a positive mindset to learning in Year One. We created flowers to represent our 'growth mindset' and to remind us to be positive when trying to complete tricky tasks.
