Curriculum Overview:


Y1 Spring 2 curriculum overview


PE days: 

1S - Monday and Wednesday.

1D - Tuesday and Wednesday.

We ask that your child has a plain white t-shirt, black shorts (jogging bottoms in the colder weather) and suitable footwear. Children are to come to school wearing their PE kits on their PE day.


Reading Books:

Please can you make sure your child reads at home each day. You should bring your reading book into school every Friday so that the books can quarantine over the weekend ready to be sent home on Monday with your new books. We will still read with your children during the week but will not be writing in the reading record that goes home due to the new quarantining system. 



Literacy and Maths homework is sent home every Friday and should be brought back no later than the following Wednesday so that we have time to stick in the new homework. We do understand that there may be occasions where this may be late. Please just let us know in advance as we are happy to re-arrange on the odd occasion. Spellings will be sent home each Friday for your child to practise at home for the Spelling Test on the following Friday!



We have been learning about hot and cold places in Year 1! Last week we made collages in Art to show a scene in Antarctica. We used different materials and talked about the textures and effects that different materials made. We really enjoyed ourselves and produced some beautiful artwork!#
