Year 1 2020 - 2021

Mrs Cleary

Welcome to Year 1 

This term our topic will be ‘Times are changing’.

We will be working hard to achieve our goals in all areas of the National Curriculum. 

Have a look below at some of the things we will be learning!


This term in Math’s, we will be looking at numbers to 20 and finding different ways to make a number using a part-whole model. Throughout the term, we will continue to work on our reasoning skills by solving word problems.


In English, we like to plan our English lessons around a book. This term we will be reading about a red London bus, who is sometimes naughty! The chosen book remains a secret for a couple of weeks as we will encourage the children to use their imagination, share their ideas and learn how to compose sentences verbally before writing. Throughout the term, the children will continue to use their Non- Negotiables (full stops, capital letters, finger spaces and reading over our work) and will learn different writing styles, as well as focusing on our handwriting. We will also be using adjectives and conjunctions to expand our sentences. 


We put a high emphasis on reading in school with daily reading activities.  It’s our expectation that all children read at least 3 times per week at home.  We ask that parents read with their children and sign the home school diaries at least 3 times a week (ideally every night). “The more you read, the more things you will know.  The more you learn, the more places you’ll go!” (Dr Seuss)

I hope you really enjoy these activities and don't forget if you have any questions please pop a note in your child's home journal and I will get back to you :) 

Thank-you for your support,

Mrs Cleary xx
