Hello and welcome to your first term in Year 1!

We hope that you have had a lovely time over the summer holidays and are ready to work hard in Year 1.

We are so excited to start our learning this term, and are sure that you will all enjoy it too!


PE will be on a Monday and Thursday afternoon so you will need to make sure to have your PE kit in school on these days. Your PE kit can stay in school to make sure we have it ready for these days.

Remember to bring a water bottle into school with you.


In Year 1, you will be given homework which will be sent home on Fridays. Each week we will send home a piece of literacy and numeracy homework. You need to bring your homework back in on the following Wednesday.

We will change your reading book twice a week and will read together during our reading and phonics sessions as well as having an individual read with an adult.

Always remember to bring your reading book into school with you, along with your reading log.

Try to practise at home with your grown-ups, this way you will become superstar readers! It would be lovely to hear about books you have enjoyed reading.


Our Pathways to Write texts for this term are:

Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers

Nibbles the book monster by Emma Yarlett


Our Topic is: Journeys – near and far!

Journeys – near and far! is a topic based on our geographical location. The children will learn about their locality as well as other countries and oceans across the world. We will focus on books which highlight characters’ journeys.


We can’t wait to see all of your wonderful work this term!


Miss Curry, Mrs Tuohy and Miss Price.
