In Year 1 this half term, our topic is called Us and our World. In Literacy we will be looking at the book ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers and linking it to our wider curriculum. We will be focusing on saying a sentence and writing it, forming our letters correctly. In Geography we will be learning to use maps and identify countries of the UK. In maths we are focusing on counting to 20, forwards and backwards, recognising numbers to 20 and beyond, counting out amounts to 20.
Please ensure your child comes to school dressed in their PE kit on their PE day. They will stay in their kit all day. Your child can wear shorts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms with a plain white t-shirt. It is very important that your child wears trainers as we will be learning outside.
1H PE days are Wednesday and Thursday
1P PE days are Thursday and Friday
Your child can bring the following items to school each day:
Book bag, water bottle, coat, packed lunch if they are not on school dinners. Please ensure your child does not bring anything else into school e.g. no snacks or toys.
Your child will receive a reading book on Monday and have this book for the whole week. They need to bring it in everyday and leave the book at school on a Friday. They will then receive a new book after the weekend. If you would like to read more with your child please log in to
