Year 1

Welcome to the Spring term!


Home learning is definitely a different way to start off the new year! I would like to thank all the parents and guardians for their continued hard work and support through this difficult time. You have been doing some amazing things to support your child’s learning! If you need any help or support please contact me through Dojo messages or leave a message with the school office.    


This term we will continue to post activities online onto Class Dojo, so please check there for any updates.  

In phonics, we will be watching the daily Read Write Inc videos, which are posted daily onto our class story page. Please encourage your child to join in with Rosie as much as possible. These videos need to be watched daily and they are really important for your child to make speedy progress once we are back at school.     


For English, we will continue to develop our reading and writing skills in line with the Year 1 curriculum. We will also be using our ‘word of the day’ to improve our vocabulary. An improved vocabulary is really important to children’s learning because it helps them make more sense of the world and improves their understanding across all subjects.  


In Maths, we will continue to follow the White Rose maths scheme ( and support this with optional videos and activities from BBC Bitesize ( 


Additional activities for foundation subjects will be posted daily on Dojo, so please look out for those too. These activities are all based on the Year 1 curriculum for science, history, geography, art, D&T, RE, computing and PSHE.  This term we will be looking at materials in science and changes in living memory in history.  


Thank you for sharing all the work that is being posted onto class Dojo, it is really great to see.  

Miss Saddow and Miss Ryan :-)
