Welcome to Year 1


Welcome to Year 1. We hope you had a lovely summer holiday and made special memories to treasure. 

The transition into Year 1 can be a scary time for some children (and parents), so we hope to make this as easy as possible. One way we do this is by keeping you informed about what we’re doing and what we plan to do. To that end there is a notice board in the classroom window which will be regularly updated.  I have attached a link to the Meet the Parent Power Point for those of you that were unable to attend. Also, I am in the process of setting up a Year 1 Twitter page so I can add pictures and messages and keep you fully updated on what we're doing.

If you have questions or concerns, I am almost always available after school, so please come and speak to us.

Autumn 1

We are starting off this term with a week’s mini topic on Elmer the Elephant. Through the book, we can explore differences and what makes us special. We can also think about the different feelings we experience and help the children to understand some of the feelings they may be experiencing at this time of change.

Our main topic for the rest of the term is, Has the Seaside Changed? In this topic we will learn about the seaside; why it is a popular place to visit, what we can find there, where it is, and how it has changed over time. This topic is packed full of hands on activities that will help children understand a little more about our environment, what we value, and how people and places change.



PE will be on a Friday morning. Pumps, not trainers, are needed and children wearing earrings will be asked to remove them.

Forest School sessions will be on a Monday afternoon and children are asked to come into school in their forest school clothes, please also send in appropriate footwear.

Snack – Toast and milk can be purchased from the kitchen for £2.50 a week, this must be paid in advance (weekly or termly), or you can send fruit in with your child if you would prefer. Please be aware that only fruit can be brought in from home.
