Welcome to Year 1's class page!

A big hello from Miss Alderson, Miss Harrison, Mrs Dunn, Mrs Qureshi and Mrs Temple!



Hello everyone! We are Year 1 and this is our Class Page!

Summer 2

Our final half term takes us on a journey to the past to look at the history of Transport.  We will look at how trains have changed over time and cannot wait for our trip to the National Railway Museum to bring it to life!

Here is the topic web to show this half terms learning.

Summer 1 2022

We are so excited to be back for the final term of Year 1.  We will be spending this half term looking at Traditional Tales and using these stories to help us become authors.  We will link it to our science learning of plants.  We can't to get planting and watch them grow!

Here is our typical weekly timetable. There are a couple of things to highlight: 

  • PE day is a Thursday - your child can come to school in their PE kit every Thursday. 
  • Your child will need their water bottle and snack every day. 
  • Please ensure that your child has their reading book and reading record with them every day, even if you haven't read it at home yet. We have timetabled slots where adults read with each child so it is really important that he/she has it in school. 
  • Spellings and maths homework will be sent via Google Classroom every Thursday evening for the following Thursday (this week has been an exception). 


Our Current Learning - Summer 1

Our learning so far this year


Every Thursday, a maths homework task and 6 spellings will be released via Google Classroom. This will be an electronic copy.  


The deadline for each maths task will be the following Thursday and spelling quizzes will also be held on a Thursday. 


Please note, this homework is to extend your child's learning, not to test them. We would like the children to complete it as independently as possible; however, if you find that your child is finding it difficult, please make a note and we can follow it up through curriculum time. 


Please see the below documents to support learning spellings each week. 

Recommended Reading

Please see the below link which has been made available for all families to access. It contains the recommended reading for children in Year 1. It has a lovely mixture of fiction and non-fiction texts which will really enhance your child's comprehension skills. 

Cursive Handwriting

In Year 1, we begin to teach the children how to form letters using the cursive script. Although this does look very confusing, the children have taken it in their stride and try so hard to ensure that they use cursive letters, even when they're writing on white boards. Please see the below document which demonstrates how the letters need to look in the cursive script. If your child is writing at home, please encourage them to use the cursive script so it becomes second nature to them. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. 

Our Creative Curriculum

We have created a Long Term Plan overview of what Year 1's curriculum is going to look like this year. We have worked incredibly hard to ensure that there are broad and balanced opportunities for all children to achieve and flourish during their time at school.


We are very excited about our Long Term Plan and are just putting the finishing touches to it. Come back soon to see the finalised document!
