Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome back to Year 1!

Continuing to build on from the work in the Winter and Spring terms, we continue to follow the National Curriculum which means that lessons are more formal and you will notice changes in the way your child is learning.  In Year 1 all children work in groups or individually to produce pieces of work every lesson.  All work is differentiated meaning that your child is working at their level. Everyone is expected to have a go and do their best every day.

Reading is incredibly important for your child’s progress.  We will read with your child three times a week, following the Read, Write Inc scheme of work and would appreciate you reading at home as often as you can (preferably every day) to support this.


In English we will be continuing to reading stories and non-fiction books as well as exploring poetry and rhyming. We will be writing in sentences using capital letters at the beginning, finger spaces between words and full stops at the end.  We will develop our reading skills including phonics, sight vocabulary and comprehension.  Year 1 has three handwriting sessions each week where we learn how to sit in the correct writing position, form letters accurately and write these letters in the correct position on lined paper.


In Maths we will be securing our understanding of place value and numbers. We are also looking at time, mass/weight, 2D and 3D shapes, counting, money and multiplication and division.

Our Science topic this term is animals including humans. Much of this work will be experimental.


Our PE lessons are every Wednesday and Thursday so please make sure your child comes to school wearing their PE kits, which is trainers, black jogging bottoms/leggings, white t-shirt and the blue school jumper.

Please remember that the school day now finishes at 3.30pm prompt for Year 1.

I am delighted to be working with this particularly lovely cohort of children and I am looking forward to a very successful year.


Yours Faithfully,


Mr L Allaway
