Year 1 Curriculum

Welcome to Year 1!

It has been fantastic to meet you all and to welcome you into our classrooms.

This Term our topic is Castles and Dragons. All our cross-curricular work will focus on Castles around the UK. After the half term, we will focus on London in the past.

Thank you for all your amazing Castle creations that have been brought in. They look fantastic and have pride of place in our classrooms.

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 school book, and we would love to see these recorded in your reading records.

Homework will be given out weekly on a Monday to be brought back to following Monday. The homework will be linked to spellings, basic skills, phonics and simple activities to help complement their learning within the classroom. We will start practising Year 1 spellings. 3 words will be sent home with the Homework for the children to practise.

Thank you for your support.

Miss Searby & Miss Atkins
