Year 1

Hello everyone and welcome to Year 1.

Reading Challenge Books


Welcome to Year 1.

We hope that you have had a lovely half-term break and are well-rested for the run up to Christmas. The children are now settled into Year 1 and we will be looking to push their learning forward as we come up to the Christmas break.

Learning theme: Awe and Wonder


Our learning theme this half term is ‘Awe and Wonder’ and it fits into our Geography, History and English lessons mainly. For the first four weeks we will be looking at poetry in English – where we will be reading 4 books by Dr. Seuss, experiencing the wonder of poetry and rhyme! During this time we will also be learning about why we buy and wear poppies – remembering all those people who have died or were injured in wars to ensure that we have peace and freedom in our country today. In the last four weeks, we will be learning all about why we celebrate Christmas, and so in English we will be reading and retelling the Nativity story in chapters.

Specialist lessons: PE, Music, Drama, Spanish and Art

Our PE days are Monday and Friday. It is essential that children arrive with a complete PE kit. Make sure all their clothes are named. Children will also continue having specialist lessons in Art, Music, Drama and Spanish.


This half term we will continue to consolidate number bonds facts and use these to develop our skills with addition and subtraction. We will also be learning about shapes and patterns, length and height, positions and fractions. In addition to this we will also be learning the language of ‘more’ and ‘fewer’ to compare two sets of objects.


Homework will be given out on Mondays and expected back the following Monday. Please make sure your children complete the daily English and Maths tasks and sign the sheet and comment as to how they got on. In addition to these tasks, the Reading Challenge book is a perfect opportunity for the whole family to read together. Please remind your children to change their Reading Challenge book every Monday. Please ensure that your child has completed a story map for each book before returning it.
