Welcome to 1S!


Our Class Councillor... Jasmine Jones-Naji



In Year 1 your child will be expected to achieve a Mathletics certificate every week. Tasks and new learning will be updated by the class teacher on a Monday morning, this will relate to the learning taking place in school that week. Mathletics certificates will be printed out before achievement assembly each week.

May we remind you of the importance of taking time to read with your child each night. This may include your child reading their school book to you but it may also be you reading a book to your child, both of these experiences are equally as important. 'Book Talk' is really valuable at this point so encouraging your child to talk about what they have read or asking them questions about what they have read is really useful.


PE will take place on a Wednesday and Friday this half term so please ensure that your child brings their PE kit them at the beginning of each week. Again, please ensure that ALL kits are named.

This half term the focus in PE will be Sports Day practise and Multi-skills.


Water Bottles and Snack

Please send your child to school with a water bottle. Children are not entitiled to free milk in Year 1 so it is really important that they have their own water bottle to drink throughout the day.

We will continue to provide snack for the children this year. We continue to ask for a contribution to cover the cost of the fruit. These costs are listed below (please note that if we are unable to cover the cost of the fruit, we will no longer be able to provide your child with fruit each day).


If you are experiencing difficulties logging on to school gateway, please pop to the office.

What we are learning about:

 In Literacy we will be using 'Talk for Writing' to learn the story of 'Grandad's Island'!

In Maths we be focusing on 2D and 3d shapes, measuring, capacity, position, days of the week, months of the year, ordering, time and money; as well as continuing to develop our understanding of number. 

In Science we will be learning about Plants.

In Art, we will be developing our pencil and sketching skills as well developing our understanding of colour; beginning to arrange and apply materials and paint with increasing care and control. Our artist study this half term is Henri Rousseau.

In Geography, we will be looking at out planet Earth. We will be able to name and locate the 7 continents and 5 oceans using maps, atlases and globes.

In History, we will be learning all about Neil Armstrong and comparing him to Tim Peake.


The drop in session for 1HS is on a Thursday after school. However, should you have any questions or need to contact me outside of the school day, I am also available on my email.

Thank you for your support.

Miss Shaw 😊
