Year 1

Welcome to Year 1:
Beech Class & Birch Class

Miss Hall and Mr Turner are teaching Beech Class this year and Mr Hayward is teaching Birch Class.


Welcome to year 1! We hope you find the information below useful as your child starts the year with us. This information will help you support your child at home with the organisation of their week and their learning at home.

Key Times


Homework will be set every half term. Your child will be asked to work on a number of projects, designed to enrich the learning-taking place in school. This approach to homework has been designed to enable you and your child to work together in a creative way and to develop a love of learning. Please see the homework document for Autumn 1.


In year 1, PE will be on a Monday and Friday. Please ensure that your child has a named PE kit on this day and all jewellery is removed


We are very excited to invite the ‘London Science Museum’ into school on Thursday 3rd October. There will be several Bubble Shows running throughout the day for all the children to enjoy and take part in. Children will learn the secret of the Science Museums famous bubble recipe and learn how some materials can make others change. Someone will even step into the famous human bubble!

Key Times

The school gates open at 8:30 in the morning. Children are invited into class from 8.45am. In KS1, children will be dismissed at the end of the day at 3:20.










Read it!

Say it!

Practise it!

  • Read a fiction or non-fiction book that is about Space.
  • Write a review of this book. Include some of the key facts that you have learned about this period of time.

By encouraging students to think and speak using sophisticated phrasing, they are more likely to internalize it and use it confidently in their writing.

Read, learn and use the key vocabulary listed below:   

Entertain, important, special, fantastic, grubby, alien, craters, souvenirs, rises, fetch.

Work together to incorporate the vocabulary into a conversation.


  • Practise your number bonds to 10. Experiment with different ways to learn them, e.g. writing them out, songs on YouTube, reciting them aloud or asking someone to test you.
  • Practise your weekly spellings – try using them in a sentence both written and in discussion.

Make it!

Write it!

Share it!

In History we are learning about Toys.


Make your own toy or game that you can play with your friends.

  • In Geography we are learning about Our Local Area.Plan and write a recount of what it is like to live in this area you could include things you like to do and places you like to go.
  • Create a poster to demonstrate and explore your favourite aspect of learning this half-term.
  • You can create: a poster, leaflet, PowerPoint demonstration, news report, interview.Be creative.

A note to parents,

Over the course of this half term please work with your child to complete the above. Each of the activities has been designed to support, enhance and enrich an aspect of the curriculum. We are looking forward to seeing the results of your work together. The best homework overall will be presented in assembly and displayed around the school.

We are all very grateful for your support!

In addition, we will be looking for every child to read at home with their parents every evening. Listening to children read will enable them to grow in confidence as they become fluent readers. Once children are able to read fluently and with expression and engage in discussion around their comprehension of the texts will be equally beneficial.

Many thanks from the year 1 team


What are we learning?

In Literacy we will begin by reading “Man on the Moon". This story follows the life of Bob a man who has a very special job.  Children will use this book as a stimulus for discussion and writing. We will make predictions, re-tell the story and write letters to Bob. In Maths we will be focusing on place value, and the two operations: addition and subtraction. We focus on these for a term so that children have a good foundation of number skills before moving on to other areas of mathematics. In Science children will learn about Plants and Seasons and enjoy exploring our local area in Geography. Children will look at how toys have changed in the past in History and explore internet safety in computing. During RE children will think about why we might be thankful. In PE children will play Tag Rugby and take part in Gymnastic lessons. Children will have fun with Hip Hop in Music and experiment with drawing in Art. In PSHE we will think about ourselves in our world.

How can I help at home?

One of the key ways every parent can help is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 20 minutes – this can be with you, or on their own, but it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school. Children also have a Mathletics and Literacy Planet Login – please encourage them to use this frequently, as it will really help with their quick recall of mathematical facts.

Reading Morning

Every Friday morning from 9am-9.30am we open our doors and invite parents in to share books and stories with their children and their friends. This is a lovely learning experience for all children and we hope you can join us when you’re free.

If you have any questions, please talk to Miss Hall, Mr Turner or Mr Hayward, or you can arrange a meeting at the office.

Thank you,

Miss Hall, Mr Turner and Mr Hayward.
