In English, we will be using the IPEELL approach to help write fact files. We will be learning about nouns and adjectives.   

In maths, we begin the year looking at numbers within 10, counting backwards and forwards and addition of single digit numbers. The children will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes.

To link in with our History question for this half term, which is,  Was school more fun for our grandparents than it is for us?

Our School day


I have attached a copy of the Year 1 lesson timetable so that you can see how your child's say is structured.

In the Autumn term, we aim to have 2 practical maths lessons that enables your child to learn through play.

Your child will be put into a phonics group based on their need and they will have a daily phonics session.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be back in school by Wednesday.

The children will have maths, phonics and spelling homework.

Spelling tests are done on a FRIDAY.

Reading books

Please can all children have their reading books in school every day.

Children can change their reading books each day if necessary and we encourage the children to do this as part of their daily routine at school.

It is really important that you hear your child read regularly at home as this has a big impact on their progress

When you have heard your child read, please make a comment in their green reading record.




P.E. will be on a MONDAY and FRIDAY for this half term.     Please ensure that your child has their P.E. kit in school on these days.

We will be doing as much of our P.E outdoors this half term, so please ensure that your child has the appropriate P.E kit!!

It is essential that all clothes have their name in as they can easily get mixed up. Please can you help your child practice getting dressed/undressed at home if they are not yet able to get changed by themselves.



As mentioned above - If you need to see me about an issue concerning your child, however big or small, please feel free to see me at the end of the day or arrange an appointment via the office.

Thank you!
