Year 1

Spring Term 2019 


Welcome back after Christmas. We hope you enjoyed your break.

Here’s some information to help you get organised this term:

·         Children are now been collected from the yard at 8:25am in order to get into class for 8:30am. Try not to be late as this can be unsettling for your child.

·         Please bring your PE kit on MONDAY and leave it at school until FRIDAY before taking home to wash.

·         The days for PE have now changed to Wednesday and Friday for Year1 Venus and Thursday and Friday for Year 1 Apollo.

·         Children are bringing reading books home please make sure they are brought to school and changed regularly (every day if you can!)

·         As a reminder please can you put names in your child’s uniform to help prevent it getting lost.


Our learning in Y1this term:

·         The children will be learning phonics through Read Write Inc every morning.

·         In maths the children will be learning addition and subtraction and the relationship between both. As well as re capping our numbers to 20. Counting backwards and forward.

·         Our topic text driver is Mr Wolfs Pancakes by Jan Fearnley




We will be designing and making puppets in order to help us re tell the story. We will also be writing instructions on how to make Pancakes and, of course, making our own pancakes to eat in class!


We will also be using the story to learn about houses and the different types of houses you can live in.


Thank you to the employers who have supported us with STEM this year
