Spring Term 2021

Welcome to Year 1!

I hope you had a happy and relaxing Christmas! Thank you so much for your kind wishes, cards and gifts.

After a great start to Year 1, I am looking forward to our spring term together.

In English we will be using the book ‘Hermelin’ as inspiration to help our detective story writing and letters. 

In Maths we will look at place value and addition and subtraction related to bigger 2 digit numbers. 

In Science we will look at Polar Places.

In History we will be learning about Captain Scott; his early life and Antarctica Expedition. As a part of this topic, we will touch on Geography when looking at where the South Pole is in relation to the equator and the extreme weather conditions.

In Art we will be creating winter inspired collages and using pastes to create lines and textures… and much more!

If the children can continue to come into school in PE kits (trainers, joggers/leggings and sweatshirt/hoodie are advised) on Tuesday’s and Friday’s- Tuesday will be Premier Sport dance sessions and Friday’s will be a short session with me.

 Please read daily with your child at home to build up confidence, greater decoding skills and reading. In Year 1, we have a Reading Challenge for every 14 days consecutive nights reading your child will earn 10 house-points and their photo displayed on our ‘Reading Challenge stars’. I will continue to keep books overnight on Thursday's.


As always if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thanks again for your continued support.

This is our Year 1 webpage and each week, visitors to our site will be able to see all the relevant current information for our class.  There is our 'Looking back and forth' news item which will give you lots of information about our learning.

If you have any queries or wish to get in touch with us, you can see me at the beginning or end of the school day. Alternatively on email -


Reading everyday with your child will help them practise the skills of reading.  As well as being a fun thing to do together. Remember, for 14 nights consecutive reading you will achieve 10 Reading Challenge points! Children have packs of sounds and tricky words from Phase 2-Phase 5, if these could be practised regularly to help with recogntion and spelling.

Handwriting and spellings sheets will come home on a Friday and  are to be handed in the following Friday.
