Year 1 

   

 Welcome to Year 1 

We would like to welcome you to our Year 1 page.

We have had a brilliant start to 2022 in Beach Hut, Rock Pool and Sandcastle Class. 

Our Spring Term topic is ‘Bright Light, Big City’. We will be learning about London and some of it's famous landmarks, through the help of Paddington Bear. We will also be learning about The Great Fire of London and how it has shaped London as we know it today.

Alongside this, we will be finding out about the four countries within the UK and exploring the key human and physical features in our geography sessions. In our  Design and Technology topic 'Taxi', we will be exploring wheels, axles and chassis and how they work together to make a vehicle move and will be designing and making our own moving vehicles.

Take a look at our wonderful learning environments.

Reading and Writing

Encourage your child's love of reading by reading, listening and enjoying books together. Please read with your child at least four times a week using the reading books sent home from school and write a short comment about their reading in their Seesaw journal.

Please also practise the everyday words with your child by reading and writing them. Encourage your child to write them in as many different ways as you can - such as building them with magnetic letters, making them in playdoh or writing them using felt-tip pens, paint, colouring pencils, chalk or in sand.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch by email via the school office or by sending a message on Seesaw.
