Year 1 2020 - 2021

Mrs Cleary

Welcome Back Year 1 


It’s Spring!!

This term our topic will be ‘Is your home a sweet one?’.

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 focusing on multiplication (2s, 5s, 10s) and division sharing objects equally across a given number of groups to find out how many are in each group. Then we will use our understanding of division to solve simple word problems.

Towards the end of the Spring term, we will learn how to find halves and quarters of both shapes and groups of objects.



In English, we will be reading the story The Jolly Postman.

We will be using our imaginations to create our very own fairy-tale story, compare characters (good and evil) from different fairy-tales and use conjunctions to extend our sentences. We will also become different fairy-tale characters and act out scenes from the book during (thinking, speaking, and listening to one another)

We will continue with our weekly comprehension this will help us to become more confident when reading a text (fiction and non-fiction) and understanding of what we have read.

Throughout the Spring term, we will continue to use our 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 and spelling our tricky words.



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)


What a busy term!! 

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 as soon as possible.

Thank-you for your continued support,

Mrs Cleary xx
