Welcome to Year 1 Class page

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

Welcome back, I hope you have all had a lovely break and everyone is well refreshed and ready for another wonderful half term of leraning. 

Our new topic is called Rio De Vida!

This half term we will be looking at Brazil and the famous Rio Carnival. We will be designing and making headresses and masks uing a varety of different materials. We will also be making music using drums and other instruments you would see at the rio carnival. We could even make some of our own instruments! We will be answering questions such as;

 - Where is Brazil on a map?

 - Can you name the 7 continents of the world?

 - What is the capital city of Brazil?


We will be focusing on sentence writing and practicing phonics for both reading and writing. It is important that you read with your child at home and help them practice their phonics skills. We will be looking for children to use capital letters at the start of a sentence and a full stop at the end.

Designing our own Carnival costumes and masks. Designing and making musical instruments.


Coding through algortihms. Internet safety.

Following Jesus. We will be focusing on Jesus and his disciples in the build up to Easter and learning some stories such as the story of the Good samaritan. 


Children will have PE every Wednesday. A full PE kit MUST be in school at all times; Yellow t-shirt, black shorts and pumps. 

Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be back in on the following Wednesday. 

Spellings will be stuck in homework diaries for this half term and the children will be tested every Wednesday. 


We appreciate you continuing support and if there is anything you wish to know please feel free to ask.
