Year 1 Homework - Due Monday 17th June


Project Time - The children have been set the task of creating their own piece of creative work linked to the topics we have looked at this year. The topics we have studied in class are:

  • The Queen
  • Seasons and weather
  • Hot and Cold places
  • Meerkats
  • Explorers

. This piece of homework can be in the form of a PowerPoint presentation, art work and sculptures, information fact file, poster, small booklet etc. The children will need to complete some research about what they are making first before creating it.

Here are some examples the children could research about: 

  • Castles and Palaces
  • Crown Jewels
  • A rocket for an Astronaut
  • The Solar System
  • A habitat box 

They will be presenting their pieces to the rest of the class during the week commencing Monday 17th June. Please do not bring them in any sooner as we have no space in the classroom to store them. 


Ongoing Phonics - Please continue to use the Phonics Play website to practice Phase 3, Phase 4 and Phase 5 sounds with your child.

The days for changing Reading Books have changed! 

Green and Yellow Group - Tuesdays

Year 1 sampling their crumbles! 

We made apple crumble as part of our focus on Instructions in English. 

We have also been looking at Capital letters, when we need to use them and how we write them. The children took part in some activities to practice forming their capital letters correctly.  

Year 1's trip to Packington Farm 

Gruffalo Cupcake Decorating


After our English topic on the Gruffalo, we decorated Gruffalo cupcakes. The children were asked to write instructions afterwards of each step of how they decorated their cupcake. 


Our first week in Year 1


We have been busy in Year 1 over the past couple of days getting to know our new teacher and teaching assistant, discovering the new routines we have throughout the day and already learning new and exciting things. The children worked as a class to decide what our new rules will be in Year 1. They decided that the following rules were important to follow in school in order to have a fun year. 


Listen carefully to others. 

Put up your hand if you need to ask or answer a question.

Walk quietly and sensibly around the school.

Sit nicely on the carpet and at our tables.
