Welcome to Year 1 Class page

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

Welcome back, I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and the children are ready and raring to go with another exciting year of learning! I know we have got plenty of brilliant learning opprtunities and experiences for the children this year. 

Our new topic is calle Dinosaur Planet!

We have already had a visit from a dinosaur that has broken into school and trashed our classroom. The children have had to think about questions such as, 'What was a dinosuar doing in our class?' and 'How did it get here?'

We will be looking at how dinosaurs lived and why we dont see them anymore. So it would be great for the children to also do some of their own research at home and bring it in to share with the class.



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.


Classifying and sorting animals according to whether they are invertibrates, fish, reptiles, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals.

Art and Design:

Using a range of materials creatively to design and make products.


Password safety and coding.


Looking at events beyond living memory.


Read and write numbers to 20. Add and subtract single digit numbers. 


Music will be based around our dinosaur topic. 


God's Great world


Children will have PE every Wednesday and Friday. 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.


Thank you


Mr Shaw
