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 Paws, Claws and Whiskers!

This half term we will be looking at Wild and domestic animals and focusing on similarities and differences between them.We will research information about Carnivores, Herbivores and Omnivores. We will refresh our memories about the seven continents of the world and try and place animals on a world map. I wonder what animals live in hot places?


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. 

When we come back on the 10th June the children will take a phonics screening test where they have to read 32 words with all the sounds they have learnt in school. It is important that your child is practicing their phonics at home so they can do their best in the test. 

Art and Design:

We will be looking at artists such as Henri Rouseau as well as designing our 'ultimate pet.' We will then turn our ulitmate pet designs in to clay creations. 


Coding through algortihms. Internet safety. 


Read and write numbers to 100.

Add and subtract single and two digit numbers.

One more and one less than any number up to 100. 

Counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

 Comparing .


We will be learning songs all about animals and their habitats.


Resurrection. We will be learning stories from the bible linked to the Easter story. We will be extploring the meaning of Jesus' death and resurrection as thinking about why the story is so important to christians. 


Children will have PE every Thursday. 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 Thursday. 

Children will swap their home reading books on a Thursday so please ensure that their books are in school on Thursday as we cannot send home a new book until the previous one is returned.


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


Thank you


Mr Shaw
