Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Scarlet Class is a Year 1 class of 30 fabulous children with Ms Mutter as their teacher.  Crimson Class is a Year 1 class of 30 equally fabulous children with two teachers: Mr Beh Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and Mrs Ward on Tuesday. We have a great team of teaching assistants in Year 1: Ms Monk, Mrs Mitchell and Mrs Sanderson. We work hard to be kind to each other, respecting our differences and sharing a great learning journey together!

Our first topic for the Summer term is Stones and Bones where our focus will be on history and science. We will learn about Mary Anning, fossils, palaeontology, the history of dinosaurs and different types of materials. We are excited to become palaeontologists and investigate fossils in and outside the classroom.

In English, we will focus on different texts, such as The Tin Forest and Cave Baby. These stories will allow us to use our senses to write our own stories. In Maths, we will be focussing on subtraction with, place value to 50, greater than and less than, multiplication and division, and geometry. There’s a lot to keep us busy this term!

General Information

In Year 1 we love reading and try to read as much as possible. We encourage parents to read regularly with children and to record this in their reading record book. Children are expected to change their own reading book regularly from the colour banded selection in class as often as necessary, so please remember to bring your book bag every day. 

Crimson PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday.  Scarlet PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Please come to school in PE kits on those days.  PE kit consists of: navy blue shorts or tracksuit bottoms, white t-shirt, navy blue sweatshirt or cardigan, and trainers.

Please provide your child with their own water bottle daily. This is especially important for PE days, so that we stay healthy and hydrated!  This should be named and brought home daily for cleaning.

If you have any questions about school, please contact the Office by phone, email or in person, or come and find us!
