We have another exciting half term ahead. We have planned lots of super activities and have been busy getting our classrooms ready. Look at our new areas…

Pet Shop

Does your child have a pet at home? Please can you send in a photograph of your child with their pet to display on the wall in our pet shops. Photographs can also be emailed to the class teachers and we will print them at school.

Spring and Plants


This half term we are focusing on Traditional Stories, including Jack and the Beanstalk, The Gingerbread Man and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We will be looking carefully at the characters and using lots of adjectives to describe them. We will also be writing our own versions of traditional stories.

Mrs Spencer has been very creative!

In our grammar lessons we will be learning about prefixes, suffixes and plurals. We will continue with our reading lessons and in our phonic sessions we will be revising all the phonemes. 


We start this half term looking at weight and mass. We will then be learning about capacity, counting in 2s, 5s, 10s, making equal groups, arrays and doubles (multiplication). Finally we will learn about halves and quarters.

Lots of weighing fun on the maths table in 1GK.


We will begin our new science topic by learning about seeds, plants and life cycles. We will then move onto learning about animals – types, habitats, diets and life cycles.

We have a special habitat ready for some visitors in our classrooms. What do you think might live in here?

Design and Technology

We will have fun designing and creating bridges for the Billy Goats to use. Will they stop the troll? How many goats will their bridge hold?

Other news…

We will hopefully be doing most of our PE lessons outside next half term. Your child needs some appropriate trainers or pumps.

Please can you make sure that all your child’s clothing is clearly labelled. We have a lot of lost property in the box in our corridor.

Phew! Another exciting half term in Year 1! We are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday.

    Year 1 can help with some wildflower seed planting in a couple of weeks. They will need to weigh the seed and mix it with sand to scatter in 1m squares. They may also be able to plant some trees.
