Year 1 - 1EW

Welcome to Year 1 - 1EW!

Welcome back to the new school year!

We have made a tremendous start to our first topic, 'Enchanted Woodland'.

We have been exploring different traditional tales and went on a hunt around the school garden collecting clues about our focus text this half term, 'Hansel and Gretel'.

We are looking forward to our trip to the Rainbow Factory on Wednesday 12th September to explore more traditional tales through puppetry, craft and drama. 


Our PE session is on a Thursday afternoon so please make sure your child has appropriate gym wear to partake in the session.


Homework will be sent out every Friday. Please return their books by the following Thursday.

We will endeavour to change the reading books as and when book bags are returned. 


We look forward to sharing some photos with you after our trip this week.


Thank you for all your support so far this term.




Useful websites: 

By the of year 1 children are expected to be confident with Phase 5. This website has lots of free games to play to support segmenting and blending.

We start to learn cursive script in year 1. This website enables children to practice their entry and exit flicks. Please come and speak to a member of staff for the school login. 

Every child in school has their own times table rock stars account. They can make their own Avatar and collect coins and purchase items from a shop by answering multiplication questions correct. By the end of year 1 children should be confident with their 2, 5 and 10 times table.

This website has lots of good games covering a wide array of English and Maths objectives.
