Dear Parents / Carers and Children,

Welcome to Year 1

Our Topic for this half term is 'Ourselves' - 

As part of the children's learning, we will be exploring how we change over time. Please bring a photograph into school of your child as a baby, these will be sent home and not used for any other purpose other than a discussion point in class.


Please take time to look at the phonics section on our class homepage. This year the children will have a phonics screening check towards the end of the year. This is a national check and the children will be asked to segment and blend read and psuedo ( alien) words . If you have any questions about the phonics screening check please ask!




  • Spellings given Monday, test on Friday
  • Reading every day, 5-15 minutes. Please sign your child’s diary every time they read at home.
  • English or Maths once a week, to take 15 minutes
  • Homework will be given on a Friday to be returned the following Tuesday. Please ensure that homework is completed and handed in on time.
