Please help!
Please teach your child to put on their coat independently. We have noticed today that many needed support and did not know how to put on their coat. It would be a great help, now the weather is changing, if they could do this on their own. Thank you!

Here is a brief outline of the topics we wwe wiill be covering this term. Please come and speak to us if you have any questions or woulwould like any further information. Please also check the boards outside our classrooms which are uupdated regularly with information.


We will be developing the children’s range of writing skills.

To begin the term we will be focusing on the story of The Magic Shoes. We will then

Year 1 continue to have daily phonics lessons.

We will work on applying the phonemes they learnt in foundation stage and they will

learn alternative graphemes.


We will be focusing on number confidence and place value during this term.

  • Learning to count to and across 100, forwards and backwards
  • Read, write numbers from 1-20 in numerals and words
  • Identify one more and one less than a given number
  • Count, read and write numbers up to 100 in numerals, count in multiples of 2s,5s and 10s. Our problem solving will continue throughout the year where we will learn to apply our new knowledge in a range of contexts.


In Science, year one will be learning about everyday materials. 

We will be identifying these materials; describing simple physical properties;

and comparing and grouping. We will be developing our investigation skills by

conducting our own experiments into which materials are ‘waterproof’. 


Please continue to support your child at home with their reading every night.

We will continue giving children house points for daily reading at home and they can

collect their reading star certificates and prizes.

Your child will continue to bring home key word cards and sound cards to practise

at home daily.
