Year 1

A very warm welcome to 1C. We are excited to commence the year with our first topic, Marvellous Me! Other topics through Year 1 include; Going Green, Exploring China, Plants and Animals, London’s Burning and Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside. In Maths we are going to be focusing on a range of areas this term, including; place value, addition, subtraction and shape. In English we have a strong focus on phonics as well as covering many different genres such as poetry, fairy tales, instructions and creative writing.  We also look at comprehension and reading skills as well as segmenting and blending.  Year 1 PE day will be on a Monday, so please send your children into school in their PE kits with no earrings. Spelling tests will be every Monday morning and new spellings will be issued on the same day. Any support you can give at home with forming letters and numbers accurately would be fantastic and it is really important that the children continue to read at home.  Reading books will be changed every Friday.  Our school library visit will be every Friday morning too, so please could library books be back in school each Friday so children can swap them.  Please ensure reading folders and spelling books are in school daily. If you have any questions you can reach me on
