Welcome to Year 1 - Autumn1 2018

Building an Assault Course

The children have had lots of fun building their own assault courses in the playground.  They stretched their collaborating muscle and worked together to build a successful course.  They also flexed their arm muscles by lifting and moving all the equipment.

Place Value

We have been really busy learning about place value in maths.  We have done this in lots of ways – using straws to count bundles of 10 and Numicon!

Year 1(10)


We looked at different everyday objects in our classroom and identifies what material they were made out of.  We then learnt some new words like absorbent, waterproof, bendy, stretchy, transparent and opaque and then used these to describe the objects.

Year 1 Letter

Welcome to Year 1!

The children have all come back to school eager and ready to learn!  Fantastic!

PE – This half term PE, will be on a TUESDAY.  Please can you make sure that your child has pumps and their PE kit for these days.

READING BOOKS/LIBRARY BOOKS – Your child will have their reading book changed once a week (every child will be heard read daily within our phonics session).  We will also be visiting the library once a week for the children to choose a book to read for pleasure.

Please ensure that your child has their reading book in school EVERYDAY.

If there are any parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles etc who are able to help by listening to children read in school, it would be greatly appreciated!  Even if you can only spare one hour a week, it could really make a difference!

HOMEWORK – the children will be given their homework on a Friday and it must be back for Wednesday please.  Please sit with your child and make it as fun as possible!

If you need to speak to us, pop in after school as we are always around.

Thanks for your support
