Welcome to the Year One page.

We have lots of exciting learning ahead of us!

This half term we will continue our ‘It’s Playtime!’ topic. Please click on the link below to see a copy of our Curriculum Overview and the weekly home learning overviews.


This term we will be studying the three themes of:

Special people - People in the parish family

Meals - Mass, Jesus’ special meal

Change - Lent: a time for change


In school, we use Read Write Inc. Phonics. We will be learning how to read green words containing Set 1 and 2 Speed Sounds by sound blending and practise reading red words (common exception words).  There are lots of free resources to support your child’s learning on the Oxford Owl website https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/reading-schemes-oxford-levels/read-write-inc-phonics-guide/

We will be sharing and discussing a range of high-quality texts that are linked to our topic 'It's Playtime' to develop our love of reading. We will be learning how to compose a sentence orally and how to record our ideas in writing.


We will be developing our understanding of place value and using different methods and equipment to add and subtract numbers up to 20. We will also be learning how to recognise and name common 2D and 3D shapes, including rectangles, squares, circles and triangles, cuboids, pyramids and spheres.


Each week, the children will learn a new spelling rule which can be found in their Home School Communication Book. We will have a spelling check every Friday. Please help your child to practise writing their spellings.


PE is every Monday morning. Please ensure that your child wears their PE kit to school (white t-shirt, blue or black shorts/joggers/leggings, school sweatshirt/cardigan and pumps/trainers).They will remain in their PE kits all day.


Your child has been given a reading day. This can be found on the front cover of their Home School Communication Book. A new book will be sent home once a week. Please can you help us to develop their love of reading by reading with your child at home every day and signing their Home School Communication Book.
