Year 1

Hello Year One!                 

Welcome to term 6. Some of you will be coming back to school this term and some of you will be continuing to work from home. Either way an exciting topic lies ahead of you !

Our new topic is called Splendid Skies!

Imagine floating high above land and sea on a bed of clouds, silently swaying in a breeze. Jump back down to earth, let’s take a walk outside. But what should you wear? Wellington boots a sunhat maybe? Maybe a warm coat? How do we know what the weather is going to be like tomorrow? What sort of weather do you prefer? Sunshine, rainstorms, mist or snow? 

Topic ideas- Splendid Skies!

Write a list of things to take on a rainy day walk.

Cut out and stick pictures of outdoor activities from magazines to do in the sunshine.

Use this to write a postcard to a friend explaining all the things you will do in the sun.

Watch local weather on TV. Listen for as many different weather words as you can find and write them down.

Use google maps to find a list of aerial views. What might it be like to be on a cloud and look down on these views? Draw a map to record your view.

Find different pieces of music (or even make your own!) That sound like different weathers.     

DON’T FORGET – New homework packs can be picked up every Tuesday from the school car park between 9am and 3pm.

Hello Year One! 


I hope you’re all staying safe and enjoying learning from home.

There are lots of activities that you could do every day to support your learning.

I have included some websites that you could visit with your parents/carers and older brothers and sisters to keep you busy! Remember to do something every day.

In English, children will be continuing to follow the RWI programme. For those who have completed the programme, we will be looking at formal letter writing, adventure stories, and poetry linked to the topic. 


In Maths, we will be continuing to look at addition and subtraction, money, and multiplication and division. We follow the White Rose Maths scheme and you can find more information here: 


Our topic this term is the Great Fire of London. We will be looking at how the fire began, where it started and comparing London then to London today, using key vocabulary. We will also be having a visit from the fire brigade. 


Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday so please ensure your child has their kit on these days. 

RE and Music 

Years 1 and 2 will be performing the Nativity play at the end of the term, so this will be our focus for RE and Music up to Christmas. We hope to see you at one of our performances.
