Themes & Topics


Our Autumn topic will be ‘Fire, Fire!’ We will be learning about the Great Fire of London and comparing it with how our emergency services fight fires today; we even have a trip to the fire station planned – more information to follow!


Our Spring topic will be ‘Toy Story’ and we will be comparing toys from the past with what we know today. We will be designing and making puppets and looking at how Cannock has changed since the Victorian times.


In the Summer Term, our topic will be ‘Fighting Fit!’ we will be learning about Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale and looking at how nursing has changed from the past to how we know nursing today. We will look at what we need to do to keep healthy and make our very own fruit kebabs!

If you have any questions, concerns or worries please come and speak to us as our door is always open.

– The Year One Team


Homework will be sent out on a Monday. Please practice the spellings each night with your child. Occasionally we will send out maths and topic related homework where necessary. Make sure you read with your child every night – 10 mins is plenty!

P.E kits will be needed in school all week. if you wish to take them on a Friday to wash them feel free to do so.



Reading will play an important part during the year so please support us by listening to your child read at home. Little and often works best; ten minutes a night is ideal Please write in your child’ reading record book, to help him/her to achieve our Moorhill Reading Challenge – the first step is to read twenty five books.
