Welcome to Year One

During this first term we will be working really hard to ensure that all the children settle into the Year One routines and feel confident in their new environment.
PE will be on a Tuesday and Friday each week so please send your child to school wearing their PE kit.
Reading will play an important part during the year so please support us by listening to your child read at home. 5 minutes each night is plenty. Record this on the Boom Reader (formally GoRead) app so we can see how well your child is reading at home.
Homework will be set each Friday. Please upload any work to your child’s portfolio on Class Dojo.
Themes & Topics
In Autumn term, our topic is called ‘Fire, Fire!’
We will learn about the Great Fire of London and compare it to how our emergency services fight fires today. In Geography we will look at the town we live in and compare it to the city of London. In our Art lessons we will create fire pictures using different colours and resources and through our Design and Technology lessons we will design, make and evaluate our very own biscuits. Our Science lessons will be about everyday materials, and we will identify, name and describe the properties of different materials.
If you have any questions, concerns or worries please speak to a member of the Year 1 team, using the contact us link on this website or through Class Dojo, where we will be happy to help.
