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 to start 2019 of with another wonderful half term of leraning. 

Our new topic is called Superheroes!

This half term we will be looking at our favourit superheroes and why we like them so much, as well as looking at the evil villains we find on tv and in books.

We will also be researching real life heroes such as people who work in our fire-service and hospitals. We will be researching the life of Florence Nightingale.


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 begin to use capital letters at the start of a sentence and a full stop at the end. 


We will be using our senses to identify mysterious hidden objects. We will also be looking at, and labelling our bodies to see what superpowers we have. 

Art and Design:

Designing our own superheroes and modeliing them using different materials. 


Coding through algortihms. 


Looking at the life and work of Florence Nightingale.


Read and write numbers to 100.

Add and subtract single and two digit numbers.

One more and one less than any number up to 50. 

Counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

 Doubling and halving numbers using objects


Music will be based around our Superheroes. We will be learning songs and superhero actions while we sing.


Families and Celebrations. We will be thinking what it means to be part of our school and church family. We will also be learning about baptism and what it means to be baptised.  


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.


Thank you


Mr Shaw
