This half term in Year 1 we are learning all about Autumn.

We will be going to the woods and exploring how the seasons change during Autumn. Thinking about harvest and how we look after our crops for the winter. We will be exploring how weather changes and creating our own weather reports and exploring the work of Vincent Van Gogh. 

Your Topic homework will be posted to seesaw on alternating Mondays. 


This half term Year 1 will have PE on the Tuesday with Project Sport and Fayey. Your child will need to come to school in there PE kits every Tuesday. 



The principal focus of mathematics teaching in Key Stage 1 is to ensure that pupils develop confidence and mental fluency with whole numbers, counting, and place value. This should involve working with numerals, words, and the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, including with practical resources. 

At this stage, pupils should develop their ability to recognise, describe, draw, compare, and sort different shapes and use the related vocabulary. They will use a range of measures to describe and compare different quantities such as length, mass, capacity/volume, time, and money.

My Maths homework will be set on alternating Mondays.

Next week we will be thinking about Shapes, naming 2D and 3D shapes.

This half term in Talk for Writing we are thinking about instructions. We have made our own soup and will be writing the instructions to match this. 

We are working on our sentence writing and using the following in our work:

Full Stops

Capital Letters

Finger Spaces

and extending our sentences using 'and' or 'because'.

Phonics - this half term we are recapping Phase 3 sounds.

At home you can have a go at...

Say a sound to your child, can they write this sound down?

Can they write words using this sound.

Can they put these sounds in a sentence?


Please return book on a Monday to be changed on a Wednesdays. This year you will receive 2 books a week. 

Keep reading with your child everyday. Let them read to you but also make sure that you are reading more complex books to them and they are continuing to hear stories and other texts read aloud. 

If you need any help or support please speak to us at the end of the day or email
