Dear Parents/Carers and Year 1 children,


We are now half way through the school year and beginning to prepare the children for the next stage in their education. Before all this begins, we would like to say a huge well done and thank you for all the support and hard work received last half term.


Please feel free to come and speak with us with any questions, suggestions or concerns- we are always willing to listen and help in any way we can.

All the best,


Mrs Littlewood, Miss Madigan and the rest of the Year 1 team.

Our Topic this term is:

Bright Lights, Big City


In Science we will be continuing our topic ‘Seasonal Changes’ which teaches us about the seasons, seasonal changes and typical seasonal weather and events. We will be learning about measuring the weather and the role of a meteorologist. We will begin to learn about the science of day and night and recognise that the seasons have varying day lengths in the UK.



In art, we will be looking at the topic ’Rain and Sunrays’. This project teaches will teach us about collagraph printing, including how to develop a motif to make single and repeated prints.




This half term in Year 1 our Geography main driver project is still ‘Bright lights, Big City’. We will be continuing to explore London as well as looking at the Great Fire of London.


In RSHE this half term we will be thinking about citizenship and money. We will focus on what money is, how to keep money safe and the different ways of earning money. We will have to think about when its best to save money or when they might spend it.




This half term our PE days will continue to be on a Wednesday for 1L and Thursday for 1M. We will be introducing the concept of competition and learning about how to cope with success and failure whilst participating in a range of activities.


In Maths this half term we are starting by thinking about place value and numbers up to 50, focusing on reading and writing the numbers in numerals and words. Moving onto 1 more and 1 less and comparing numbers. Later in the half term we will move onto looking at shape, space and measure, exploring length, weight and height.



In English this half term we will be retelling the story of the Pied Piper in a four part story in our own words in different ways. In addition to this, we will be continuing to learn to use the correct punctuation through the use of capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.


Please also do get in touch if you would like to be one of our mystery readers, Fridays at 2:45pm.
