Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday.

Please make sure your child comes into school wearing their PE kit on those days.


We love reading in Year 1!

Year 1's reading books will be changed every Friday.
The children MUST have their books in school everyday so we can read with them.

Click here for some useful tips on how you can support your child with Reading at home. We suggest you read with your child at least 4-5 times a week. 

Click here to view a list of the Key Stage 1 Common Exception Words - your child is learning to read and spell these words in school. It would be great if they could practice these at home too!

If you need any support with reading at home, please come and speak with Miss Panetta. 

Reading at Home presentation for parents and carers - please click here for supporting your child with reading at home. 


We have a weekly spelling quiz on Fridays.  

Here is the list of spellings your child will be learning this term. Please support them by practising at home. 


In Summer 2, we are starting with Place value (within 100). We will be consolidating our place value skills by counting  to and across 100, forwards and backwards, beginning with 0 or 1, or from any given number. We will continue to count, read and write numbers to 100 in numerals; count in multiples of twos, fives and tens and, when given a number; identify one more and one less.

We will also be identifying and representing numbers using objects and pictorial representations including the number line, and use the language of: equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most, least. As well as reading and writing numbers from 1 to 20 in numerals and words.

We will then move onto Length and Height, Mass and Volume, Money, Position and Direction and Time. 

Please help your child at home by continuing to count in steps of 2s, 5s and 10s. Helping them to tell the time to the hour and half hour on an analogue clock and becoming familiar with different denominations of coins would also be really helpful.
