Year 1


Welcome to Year 1 with Miss Begum and Mrs Cooke!


We hope you have all had an exciting break and are ready for our final half-term together! We have some exciting topics lined up that I know you'll enjoy. In Geography, we'll be embarking on a fascinating journey around the four countries which make up the United Kingdom. In Science, we'll be diving deeper into the purposes of Everyday Materials. In our daily English lessons, we'll continue perfecting our independent writing skills, and in Maths, we'll kick off with Place Value within 100, and then move onto money and time. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out. Let's make this final half term a memorable one filled with learning and fun!


General Reminders:

  • Our PE days are Monday and Friday – children must wear their PE kit to school and ensure that earrings are taken out. 
  • Bring your water bottle to school daily.
  • Reading books are to be brought into school daily - please read with your child daily and ask them questions about what they have read, e.g. how is this character feeling, or what do you predict will happen next?
  • Spelling tests are every Monday - please ensure that children are practicing rewriting these tricky words in their spelling logs at home.
  • Our library day is Friday. If you have lost or misplaced your library book, please let us know so we can arrange a replacement, and that your child isn't missing out on reading for pleasure!
