Welcome to Year 1!


Teachers: Miss Hilton and Miss Downey
LSA: Miss Gagg and Mrs Donnelly

Spring 2 

Topic- Dinosaur Planet! 


We will be continuing to learn all about dinosaurs next term! 

We will continue to look at numbers 0-100 and looking at shape. Don't forget to keep practising counting in your 2's, 5's and 10's with your children at home. 

In English we will continue to be building up our writing- thinking about capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. Please continue to complete the English challenges with your children at home. 


We will be looking at light and dark, looking at night and day. 

PE  will be on Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure that you bring have your PE kit in school EVERY DAY! Year 1 have been chosen to take part in the wrestling next term! This allows them to develop lots of different skills. 

Your PE kit needs to have:  pumps/trainers, black shorts, white t-shirts (T-shirts with the school logo are available!).


Thank you for all the homework we have already received for our topic 'Dinosaur Planet!' We will continue to send out weekly homework for the children to complete. This helps the children consolidate their learning and build on what they already know. 


Reading at home
Please make sure that you are reading with your child 5 times per week! This is so important coming up to the phonics assessment. Thank you for your continued support. 


Please take time to help your child learn their spellings each week. They are very important in helping your child to write with more confidence. We will be sending spellings home each week based on the keywords that they need to know for their year group. The best ways to learn them are through games so they could create their own word searches, make their own snap or memory game with them, or turn them into jigsaws. They could practise writing them in bubble writing, rainbow colours, crosswords,… the list is endless! Just make it fun!



  • Our school day starts at 8.45am. Children will come into the classroom on their own, and they can be collected outside the classroom door at 2.55pm
  • Staying hydrated helps us to learn so please make sure that your child has a water bottle in school with them everyday.
  • Could we also ask that you make sure your child has their name in their uniforms and PE kits to avoid any confusion if they take their jumpers off.
  • Make sure you remember to read every night in preparation for the phonics screener!

    If you have any questions or queries we are always around at the end of the day to have a quick chat or feel free to contact the office to make an appointment!
