Year 1 Curriculum

Welcome to Year 1!

During the Spring Term our topic is Rainforest Romp. All our cross-curricular work will focus on Rainforests looking at the plants and animals that live and grow there.

Thank you for all your amazing Rainforest 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 library book or reading book, and we would love to see these recorded in your reading records.

Homework will be given out weekly on a Friday to be completed and returned by the following Friday in order to receive a certificate at the end of the half term. The homework will be linked to spellings, basic skills, phonics and simple activities to help complement their learning within the classroom.

We will continue to practise Year 1 spellings based on our phonics lessons. 5 words will be sent home with the Homework for the children to practise and the class will be tested on these on the following Friday.

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Searby & Miss Atkins
