Wishing you a happy new year!!

We hope you have enjoyed your Christmas break and are all refreshed ready to begin the new year.

We have a busy few months ahead and look forward to having lots of fun in stepping up to the challenge.

Welcome back!

Spring Term 1 -  'Creatures and Beasts'


 We are preparing for the phonics screening check by revising sounds learned in Reception and learning new Y1 sounds and spellings.

You can prepare at home by following this link 

Homework to practise real and nonsense words will also be sent home in the children's book bags and may can be found online too.

You may be interested  to know that above, I have saved a document (HFW checklist) indicating all of the sight words that children should be able to read as they move from reception through to Y2.


Y1 will explore the text 'The Lion Inside' by Rachel Bright and Jim Field where we will see a focus on grammar, punctuation and spelling as the children consolidate their sentence level knowledge. This will include joining words and clauses using ‘and’ as well as extending ideas and using the suffix -er  -est and -ed where no change is needed in the spelling of the root word.


We will also be exploring language in writing our own poetry using the book 'Tell me a Dragon' by Jackie Morris.


This unit sees an exploration of music and sounds, as well as artwork and sculpture with a particular focus on the artist Joan Miro.


In maths we continue to revise number bonds to 10 and extend these to 15, counting and writing numbers to 100 in numerals and words, spelling days of the week and counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s.  Any support at home on this revision is welcomed.
