Hello and welcome to our Year 1 page.

Here you can find out a bit more about our current learning. In year one we love to encourage independent learning through enjoyment, creativity and challenge. We will be adding photographs of the children's learning opportunities as we go on through the year. You will also find website links to support your children in their learning. We're looking forward to seeing the children achieve their full potential. Here's to an exciting term of learning!



Just a quick reminder of important information for Year 1:

  • PE day is Wednesday, please ensure your child is wearing their PE kit for school on this day. Also no jewellery please.
  • All clothing needs name labels.
  • Children do not need to bring in pencils, pens or toys from home.
  • Children are given weekly homework that relates to their school work. It may be Maths, English or topic related including spellings. Homework is handed out Fridays and returned by the following Thursday.
  • Reading books are changed once a week, please listen to your child read regularly.

Autumn 2


Our topic: Paws, Claws and Whiskers

Our learning challenge this half term is:


"What is your favourite animal?"


We will be learning all about different types of animals, including pets and discovering more about their features and habitats.
