Year 1

Year 1 Summer Term Newsletter


A very warm welcome back to all of our children.  We hope you all had a lovely Easter break.


This term is going to be another very busy time for all. We will continue to build positive learning attitudes, again with the emphasis on learning to look after our own possessions, e.g. book bags, sweatshirts and P.E. kits.


Year 1 will continue to have ICT with Mr Chaudry in the ICT Suite on Tuesday mornings; the children are becoming much more independent at using the keyboard and mouse


This half term our topic is going to be Dangerous Dinosaurs and Amazing Animals. We will be looking at animals in Science and dinosaurs in our Geography and History work. After half term, we will be looking at the seaside and how this has changed over time.


Reading continues to be of great importance and to enable your child to become a confident, fluent reader and access all aspects of the curriculum we need your support, to read with your child every night, even if it is the same book and sign their Reading Diary. Asking questions about the book is beneficial as it helps with understanding of the text.


P.E. for Year 1 will be on Thursday and for this half term we will be having dance. Children will need their indoor kits. Please ensure all of your child’s clothing has their name in it.


If you have any concerns and need to speak to us please feel free to see us after school, our door is always open.


Thank you for your support!
