smiley    Autumn Term 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome to Year 1.We hope your children are enjoying their new Year 1 class. They are all settling in well!

This term our topic is called "What makes Me, Me?" We will be looking closely and talking about what makes us all unique, how we look and what kinds of things we are interested in. We will be looking at self portraits by famous artists and painting our own. In Science we will be looking at seasonal changes around us as we move into autumn and investigating the beauty around us.   

Best wishes,
Rebecca Dawkins and the Year 1 team.

Reading and Phonics


It is essential that your child brings in their Reading Record every day. We welcome feedback from you so please feel free to write a comment about how your child is doing at home. Please read with your child every day- even if it is only for a few minutes.
It is also important that your child practises reading and spelling the Year 1  100 high frequency words in their reading record.


We learn phonics through Letters and Sounds. Please see the plan below.


YEAR 1 P.E. DAYS (Tuesdays and Thursdays)
It is essential to bring indoor and  outdoor full P.E. kits every day and keep them in our P.E. box provided please. This includes a hooded top, jogging bottoms and outdoor trainers or plimsolls. We do P.E. in all weathers!




Please practise the 100 spellings (high frequency words) for KS1 Year 1.
