Year 1

Welcome to Year 1


We hope your children are enjoying Year 1 so far.  We have had a busy time so far in our new look Year 1 classroom.  


Take a look at the subject links to see what learning has been happening and what is going to be happening throughout this term.





This term we are looking at sentence structure and making sure we are using our full stops and capital letters.  The children will be practising this in Independent Learning Challenges as well as with the adults in class. 

We are looking at the following genres too:-

  • Traditional Tales
  • Instructions
  • Poems on a theme
  • Stories with a familiar theme - Journeys to link with our travel topic
  • Some Christmas stories nearer the time



These are things we will be covering throughout the Autumn Term:-


  • Numbers and Place Value
  • Addition
  • Subtraction
  • Time
  • Money
  • Fractions
  • Weight, Length and Capacity



Year 1 is a really important time to get to grips with phonics. To be confident readers and writers, children need to be able to sound out words. For example, if we see the word 'wheel', we break it down into 'wh', ee, and l. Have a go at some of the free games on the 'Phonics play' website and keep talking, sounding out words! (Please note you will only have access to the free resources on 'Phonics Play' unless you subscribe at home. Children do not have a school login sorry.)
