‘Together we love, learn and grow’

Year 1

Welcome to Spring 1


We know this year is a very different year but we will be continuing with all of our fabulous learning. 


Miss Beaver is your Class Teacher. You will see her in the classroom or on a Zoom call. 


Mrs Sams is your Teaching Assistant. Mrs Sams will also be in school. You may see her on some videos too.




Spring 1 Phonics.



This half term we will be learning Phase 5 sounds.



Please make sure you remember all of your Phase 3 sounds too.



We will be looking at London this half term. Can you name these landmarks?

In Science we are looking at materials. Can you describe these materials?

We do not have homework in Year One but we do expect you to read at home to an adult every night. Reading to a grown up is so much fun!



Please remember to ask them to write it in your message book! We will change your book for you once you have finished reading it. Do you have a favourite book?


Our Class Author is David McKee. Do you already know some of his books? Our favourite book is Elmer. 





In Year One we also learn about an Inspirational Person. An Inspirational Person is someone who has helped or motivated lots of people. This year we will be learning about a man called William Hillary. He looked like this:



He was inspirational because he started the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution). He would save people from the sea when they were in danger. He would travel to them in his boat and take them back to shore to safety.



We will find out more information about William Hillary at school. If you would like to learn about him at home too then please ask an adult to help you.
