Dear  Olive Class, Parents and Carers,

My name is Rebecca Dawkins and I am your child's class teacher. We hope you had a great summer holiday. It was lovely having your children back in class last week and not having to stay in a class bubble. The children were very enthusiastic and excited about being in their Year 1 classroom! Sorry if I haven't met you at the gate yet, but I am hoping to gradually catch up with you during the next couple of weeks.

This term our topic is called "Who Am I? Where Am I?" 

Through English, Science ,history Geography and P.S.H.E. we  will find out what makes everyone unique and special, how amazing our body and the five senses are and how we have changed from when we were a baby. We will also be exploring changes in the weather and the autumn season.

Please find below general information and details about our phonics, curriculum map and our homework challenge for this coming term .

Best wishes

Rebecca and the Year 1 Team.




Tuesdays - Discovery with Miss Dom (Sport's Coach)

Wednesdays- Fundamentals with Miss Dawkins

Please ensure your child comes in wearing sports clothing appropriate for indoor and outdoor P.E. on these days e.g. tracksuit bottoms, t shirt trainers or plimsolls.

Earrings and other jewellery must be removed for P.E. and long haired tied back. If your child cannot remove their own earrings ,please remove these for your child before school on P.E. days.

They also need to bring a bottle of water into school every day and a sunhat in hot weather. We have a class drinking fountain which they can use to refill water throughout the day.




Reading with your child for even a few minutes every day helps them to develop their love of books and reading- as well as their confidence in learning in other subjects. Please encourage your child to read every day and bring their reading book and reading record to school every day. You may like to write briefly in their reading record to let us know how they get on at home.
