Welcome to our page for Year 1 children!


Our teachers are: Mrs. Hayward and Mrs. Bendzulla.


September 2021

This half term our topic will be ‘Toys over Time’. Using the  book ‘Lost in the Toy Museum’  by David Lucas, we will write adventure stories and a chronological report. In Maths, we will be learning place value and addition and subtraction within 10. In Science, we will investigate Everyday Materials. We will identify and name a variety of everyday materials, including: wood, plastic, glass, metal, water, rock, brick, paper, elastic, fabric and foil. We will describe the simple physical properties of  a variety of everyday materials and compare and group together materials on the basis of their simple physical properties.

Reading and Phonics are a particular focus in Year 1. Daily reading is vital to your child’s continued development and access to the curriculum. Your continued support in this is essential.

In PE, during the first half term,  we will be looking at Playground Games and Gymnastics. PSHE will enable us to explore our emotions and find appropriate strategies to manage them.



We have created a guide for parents so that you can support your children at home in preparation for the Year 1 Phonics Screening Check. You can download and read the document here Phonics_Booklet_for_Parents.pdf
