Welcome Back

Year 1 would like to welcome all the children back after the summer holidays and into their new year 1 classes. The classrooms are looking amazing and are ready for the children to take part in some super learning opportunities.


This half term Year 1 will be looking at Walt Disney as part of the RESPECT curriculum. Walt Disney is known for animating, acting and film producing in films such as Snow White and The Lion King. We also can’t wait to complete our RESPECT missions alongside our Walt Disney focus. In Maths we will be working with numbers up to 100 including, addition, subtraction, shape and  place value.

Home learning

To help support your child at home, we encourage parents to read with their child daily! Support with homework where possible would help  enable your child to progress further throughout the year. Please see our amazing homework menus which you can find at the start of each topic. The first one this Term is Simba and Me.

General information

Spellings are given out on a Monday morning each week and should be practised for 10 minutes each day. A spelling test takes place every Friday during phonics lessons.

Homework is given out on a Tuesday and should be given back by the following Monday.

P.E takes place either on Tuesdays or  Wednesdays each week. P.E kits are provided by the school.
