Year 1

Welcome to Year 1:
Flamingo Class & Stork Class

Miss Hall is teaching Flamingo Class this year and Miss Thompson is the class teacher in Stork 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 Thursday. Please ensure that your child has a named PE kit on this day and all jewellery is removed. 


This term we our topic is ‘A Day in the Life Of…’ We are inviting parents/carers to come in and talk with the children about their daily lives. Please see your class teacher if you are able to help.

Inspire Workshops

 We would welcome parent involvement in this, and look forward to seeing you then.

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

Research it

Make it

This half term we will be reading ‘Man on the Moon: A Day in the life of Bob by Simon Bartram.

 Your reading task is to select and read other books about the moon and space.


You could read a variety of fiction and non-fiction books from home or your local library.

Ask a friend if they have some they could lend you – we want to hear about the different stories as well as some exciting space facts.

Bring in a photograph of yourself as a baby.

Find out exactly when and where you were born. i.e. the date and location.

Find out as many interesting facts as you can about you as a baby and when you were born.


You can display your information however you choose, just remember to keep it eye-catching and colourful!

As part of your design it task, we would like you to design a space rocket and label all the different parts.

Use the knowledge you have of Bob and his space rocket to help you make a start with your design.


Think carefully about the materials, colour and shape of your rocket.

You can be as creative as you want to be using books and the internet to help you.

Practise it

Write it

Design it

Spend some time practising the skills we are learning in school

Read to an adult every evening and leave comments for us in your reading journal. We love to know how you are getting on. Look out for the sounds and everyday words that we have been learning in phonics. Can you share them with your adult.


Practise counting in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s. Can you practise writing any of your numbers?


Count out different amounts around your house and add one more, or take on away….

In literacy this term, we are reading a book about an astronaut.

Imagine that you are an astronaut and it is your job to look after the moon.

How would you get there? What would you wear? How will you look after the moon? What do you like about your job? What do you not like about your job?

Write about an adventure that you may have whilst working on the moon.

Be as detailed and thoughtful as you like.

 This links in with your ‘Design it’ in the box above.


Look and carefully interpret your design.


Make your rocket using appropriate materials and ensure that it looks similar to your design.

Think about, how will you ensure that your rocket can stand freely?

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.

What are we learning?

In Literacy, we will begin by reading “Man on the Moon (a day in the life of Bob”). This story follows the life of Bob a man who has a very special job of looking after the Moon.  Through this, children will discuss what they know about the moon and question whether there is any other life on the moon. In Maths, we will be focusing on place value, and the two operations: addition, 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. Our topic learning will be focused around People who help us, children will have the opportunity to use role-play and through classroom discussions gain an insight into the different roles people have in our community and those who help us.

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 or Miss Thompson, or you can arrange a meeting at the office.

Thank you,

Miss Hall and Miss Thompson
