Welcome to Year 1 Class page

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

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

Our topic is called Dinosaur Planet

This half term we will be looking at Chnages beyond living memory including how the dinosaurs became extinct. We will also be looking at what dinosaurs ate and how we can sort animals in to Carnivores, Herbivores and Omnivores.


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.  

Art and Design:

We will be making dinosaur eggs using the papier-mache technique. We will also be using other art materials for sculpting such as clay to replicate fossilised dinosaur teeth.  


Coding through algortihms. Internet safety. 


Read and write numbers to 100.

More and less.

Mathematic symbols add, take away and equals.

One more and one less than any number up to 20. 

Counting in 10s.


We will be learning songs all about Dinosaurs.


God's Great plan. We will be learning about the story of creation and how bet to look after our world.


Children will have PE every 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 Tuesday. 

Children will swap their home reading books on a Friday so please ensure that their books are in school on Friday 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
