Welcome to Key Stage 1!

We are looking forward to a half term full of wonderful learning and lots of fun! 

Our topic this half term is

'Healthy Me'

Literacy and Maths

In Literacy, we are reading a book called Nibbles: The Book Monster by Emma Yarlett.


We are reading a little bit of it each day and are basing our Literacy work around the events in the story and focusing on the basic skills of writing including handwriting.

In Maths, Year 1 and Year 2 will be covering different topics, which include Shape, Money and Multiplication and Division.


Foundation Topics

In Science, we will be thinking about keeping our bodies and minds healthy.

In Computing, we will be working on our basic skills such as logging on to the laptops, using a mouse and using a computer programme.

In Design Technology, the children will be looking at designing a 17th century house, building it and evaluating it.

In Music, we will be exploring sounds - dynamics, duration and timbre. 


We are now following a new phonics scheme - Little Wandle Letters and Sounds, Revised. Don't forget to read you Ebook at home!



Your child will also come home with a book for enjoyment. We will not be expecting your child to be able to read all of this book independently. It is exactly as it says - a book to enjoy, alone, with a parent, with a sibling, with anyone! Just enjoy the story together. Let them read bits that they can but most importantly take the time in a comfy spot - bed, sofa or even outside - together! This book will be changed only on a Monday.

Please write in your child’s reading record each time you hear them read, this can include both school books and any other substantial reading that your child does while they’re out of school.  It doesn't even have to be a book! It can be a newspaper, a comic, a magazine, a takeaway menu or even environmental print! As long as your child is segmenting and blending to read words then they are reading.


In PE this term, we will be doing Multiskills with Tom the sports coach on Wednesdays and, Football on Fridays. 


The children should come to school at the beginning of the half term with their PE kit in a small, drawstring bag, which is to be kept in school until the end of the half term when we will send them home for washing. We would also appreciate your help in allowing the children to independently dress and undress themselves at home.  In Key Stage 1, it is an expectation that the children get themselves ready for PE.

Children will usually wear their white shorts and navy PE t-shirt for PE but, while the cooler weather is lingering, they can instead wear tracksuit bottoms or leggings with their PE t-shirt and school sweatshirt or cardigan if they wish to.  It is a good idea to have both options in the PE bag - please make sure that you show your children the different items that are in there or even get them to pack it with you!

Please ensure all items are labelled with your child's name.


We will continue sending home maths homework on a Tuesday.  The maths homework is to be returned by Monday the following week. Each term, your child will also receive a learning log task.

Children are responsible for bringing home the work which has been set for them and then handing it in the following week. This promotes further independence.


From September, your child will bring home a sheet outlining their spellings for the half term, one set per week. There will be an expectation that they learn these words each week ready for a test at the end of the half term on a selection of these words.


Your child will need a coat in school at all times as we will be doing as much as we can outside.

No bags, apart from lunch bags, book bags and PE bags, are needed in school.

Please make sure that all items of clothing, including PE kits, shoes, and coats, have the children's names on the labels.  The children may be able to identify their belongings at home, but it is surprising how difficult they find it when they haven't worn something for a while and it looks so similar to everyone else’s!


Water Bottles

Please remember that children need a full water bottle every day and we will send them home every night for a wash and refill.
