Year 1

Mrs Huxley - Year 1 Class Teacher

Dear Parents and Children,

I hope that you have all enjoyed the Easter break and are now looking forward to the Summer Term. This page provides some information about the curriculum areas being studied this term.

We will start the term exploring ‘The Queens Hat’. This book links in nicely to our history topic which is 'Kings and Queens'.


We will continue to follow The White Rose scheme of work. This will include work on multiplication, division, time, money and place value.


 Our Science this term is all based around plants.


We will continue to have PE on Wednesday and Thursday. All children will need to come in dressed in their outdoor PE kit on both days. 

Water Bottles

Please can all children have a named water bottle in school so they can use the water fountain throughout the day.


We are continuing our super reader theme in year 1 which is where every time your child reads 10 times they will move onto a different superhero on our classroom display. When your child reaches Spiderman (100 reads) your child will choose a book to keep. Reading is central to your child’s learning, therefore it is really important that they practise on a regular basis in order to make progress in all subject areas. Your child should read at least 3 times a week. Please could you also continue to use the tricky word wall to support your child learning their tricky words. If you need another copy please ask. It is our aim that an adult will read with your child every week. This will be through weekly Guided Reading which is where the children develop their reading skills within a group. In addition to this, your child will have the opportunity to further develop their reading skills during adult led activities within class.


Your child will continue to have spellings which they need to learn at home ready for their spelling time on Thursdays. These words will be a mixture of tricky words (words you cannot sound out) and words which use phonics sounds taught that week. 


If you have any queries, please feel free to come and speak to us
