Topic Day

Year 1 have been learning all about kings and queens as part of our History topic this half term. For our topic day, we dressed up as knights, dragons, kings, queens, princes and princesses. Everyone looked fantastic! We spent the day doing lots of fun 'kings & queens' activities, including making and painting our very own castles!

Model text: A letter from The Queen!

Practise this model text until you know it off by heart! Remember to use actions to help you do this. 



In Science this half term we have been learning all about plants. We planted our own runner beans. For Science week, we did an experiment involving flowers. We put food colouring into the water and observed the flower's petals over time to see them change colour!


For our Art this half term, we went into the nature garden to do some bark and leaf rubbings.

Welcome to Year 1

Important information:

Physical Education

PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays and children will need to wear their PE kits on those days.

Reading Books
Please ensure that your child brings their reading book every Friday.

Books will be changed on Mondays but your child must have their reading diary signed to say they have read to an adult. Please try to listen to your child reading for at least 5-10 minutes each day.
Sharing a book at bedtime or reading a story to your child will help them develop a love for reading!

Spelling Tests take place on Fridays and new spellings will be given for the following week. Your child’s score will be sent via Marvellous Me along with the following week’s spellings.

Reading Eggs and Mathletics websites
The school has paid for all Year 1 children to use these sites at school and at home.
Log in details and passwords have been sent home. If you have lost your child's details please ask for another copy.

If you have any questions about Year 1 and the things we do, please come and talk to either Miss Webster (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday), Mrs Richards (Wednesdays) or Miss Boucher.
