Welcome to Year One!


Welcome to our Year 1 page! Here you will find information about our school day and important reminders for this half-term.


In Year One, we use Maths No Problem to develop our understanding of Maths. We also use Whiterose and NCETM as a supplementary tool to deepen our learning.

This term, we will be learning to count, order, write and compare numbers within 20, as well as learning to add and subtract.
As you can imagine, with so much to learn we will be very busy mathematicians! Please remember to complete weekly maths homework set via MyMaths Online - the activities set are aimed at supporting the new information that we are learning in school. This is a great way to support your child's learning and get involved at home.



In Science this term, we will be learning all about Seasonal Changes. 

We will investigate what seasonal changes take place across the year and see if we can identify how our local areas changes with each season.



Every Friday morning, Year One will have PE with Mr Kashiri. Please ensure that your child has a suitable PE kit for the changing weather and a water bottle, so that they can fully enjoy their PE sessions.

Please also ensure that your child's uniform and PE kit is labelled with their name - this will avoid any items getting lost.


Long Term Plan


It is vital that you read with your child on a regular basis. We ask that you read four times a week with your child and log their reading in their Homework Diary. Children will have the opportunity to change their reading books on a Tuesday and Friday.



To begin the term, we will complete a phonics baseline and recap the Phase 2 and Phase 3 Phonics covered in the summer term. This will ensure any gaps in knowledge are reviewed and taught before moving onto Phase 4. 
If you need any additional support in Phonics, please don't hesitate to ask.

In English, we will be reading 'Look Up!' by Nathan Bryon and will use this to inspire our own writing. We will be developing our understanding of fiction texts thorugh learning to: sequence, retell and rewrite stories.

We will be focusing on applying our knowledge of phonics to writing, including writing phonetically plausible words, some common irregular words and attempting to write short contextual sentences. 



This term, we will focus our PSHE studies on feelings and relationships. This will include how to build and maintain healthy relationships and what to do if we feel a relationship is negative for us. 

We will discuss our feelings, emotions and thoughts and make sure we know who we can talk to if we are worried or upset.
