Welcome to Year One! 

This Spring Term we will cover a whole variety of subjects; Science -  Seasons-Winter and Carnivores/Herbivores and Omnivores , computing - learning about algorithms , history - changes within living memory, geography - what human and physical features are in our local area , RE - Easter , PHSCE - zones of regulation, resilience and perseverance and much much more. In year one we explore these areas through whole class activities and independent learning opportunities. 

In Maths we are going to be learning all about numbers to 10; exploring different ways to add and subtract and learning to solve word problems within 10. 

This term we start in our phonics groups to carry on with our Read Write Inc program. We will also be doing lots of reading and writing in class.

Please see our dedicated RWInc page that you can find through the English page and our new Learning to Read page . You will find useful information, links and clips on there to inspire and support reading at home with your child. 


PE is on a Mondays and Fridays, please can children come to school in their kits on these days. Thank You smiley

We are also very lucky to have Drama and Music lessons with our specialists every Wednesday.

And finally homework is given out every Friday and is due back to school the following Thursday.
