Year 1 Curriculum

Welcome to Year 1!

This term our topic is Up, Up and Away. All our cross-curricular work will focus on journeys within the UK and further afield. One of the key inspirations for this term is Amy Johnson who was the first woman to fly from England to Australia.  

It is important to encourage your child to read at home at least 3 times per week to receive their regular reader stamp. Remember that reading any book is fantastic, not just your (green) reading or (red) library book. This needs to be noted in their reading records.  

Homework will continue to be given out weekly on a Friday to be brought back the following Friday. The homework will be linked to spellings, basic skills, phonics and activities to help complement their learning within the classroom. We will continue practising Year 1 spellings based on our phonic sounds that we are focusing on that week. 8 words will be sent home with the homework for the children to practise. 

Thank you again for your continued support.
