Welcome to Year 1


Please remember to look in your child's Reading Record for the website login details!

What we Love about Year 1


HF wordsphase 2


Children will study changes within living memory (post 1930s). This half term we will understand how toys have changed over time. We will focus on the question: 

"How have things changed since my great/ grandparents were 5 and 6?"

If you have any photographs the children could bring in from both the past (grandparents/ parents) and present day (the children), these will be added to our timeline that will be displayed in the class to support the childrens understanding of changes over time. 


Things To Look Out For in HT3


Look out for our weekly spellings and English homework; this will continue to focus on grammar. Maths will continue to be set on the My Maths Website. Please come in and discuss any issues you are experiencing and we will be happy to offer support and advice. 


Please ensure you read frequently with your child, reading and discussing the text at least three times a week. We really hope that you will help us to improve reading by supporting your child at home.

 Science Topic in Year 1: Everyday Materials

The children will learn about what a material is e.g. wood, metal, glass etc. We will also understand the properties of materials and why certain materials are used according to their properties. We will carry out simple tests e.g. finding out which materials are waterproof and which are not.


Half Term 3

Developing our phonics knowledge of Phase 3 and Phase 4- looking at real and nonsense words and practising reading and spelling cvcc and ccvc words.
