About our class


In the Year 1 class we provide many enriching, exciting and memorable experiences for all children. We ensure we have a broad and balanced curriculum to meet the needs of each child and provide all the core and foundation subjects specified in the National Curriculum as well as personal, social and health education.


Year 1 is an exciting place to learn! We use our growth mindset to retain a positive attitude to support us to feel happy, resilient and positive throughout our learning experience.


What are we learning?


In English we are currently looking at a traditional tale called Pattan’s Pumkin, the children have created a stunning display of the Sahyadri mountains. In Maths we are learning about fractions. We will then move on to learning about measurement and time.


In Science Year 1 and Year R are learning about plants which will involve the children doing lots of planting as well as carrying out exciting experiments with various plants and flowers. In Art we are learning all about an artist called L.S Lowry.


PE Information


Year 1 and Year R have PE on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon. Please remember to come to school in your PE kit so that you are ready for the lesson.


Homework information


The spellings and activity are handed out each Friday and tested the following Friday. Please work with us to help your child learn their spellings each week.  

Here is a fun website to learn your spellings:


Please encourage your child to READ as often as possible. Every read will be rewarded with Dojo/ House points. The more your child reads, it will enable them to implement their phonics knowledge and in turn will assist them to progress and get their bronze, silver, gold, platinum awards.


Excellent websites / apps you can use at home
