Year 1

Update W/B : 16th July 2018

And so the 5 day count down begins!!!

English and Maths information:


As we continue to work towards mastering the skills we have learnt in Year 1 the children will be writing extended pieces of narratives focusing on our trip to the beach and also the transition, not only for them but for their year R buddies.

The spellings for the children to learn this week are; writing 1-20 as words. We will be having spelling tests for the next couple of weeks so we can master these before the children move on to year 2.


In maths we will continue to look at multiplication and division and solving related word problems.

By the end of Year 1 the children need to be able to count in 2’s to 20, 5’s to 50 and 10’s to 100 and tell and record the time to the hour and half past the hour. Please look at these areas with your child.

The MyMaths home learning for this term will need to be completed by Sunday 15th July.

I have set some My Maths work that will be available on the system over the holidays. There is absolutely no expectation that this will be completed but we know the children like it and thought if they have a few spare minutes over the holiday this could be a good calm down activity!

Other curriculum news:

We all had a fantastic morning at the beach on Friday. Thank you so much to all the parents that supported, without your help and support these trips wouldn’t be able to go ahead, so thank you again.

General Information:

Year 1 visit the school library every Friday. Please ensure any books borrowed are brought back to school during this week so that a library stock take can take place over the summer holidays.

Please could you send in a named bag to school this week so that your children are able to bring home all their learning. Please can these be in school by Tuesday 17th July.

Thank you all so much,

Year 1 Team
