Welcome to Year 1



This term our topic will be 'How does your garden grow?'.

The children will be working hard to achieve their goals in all areas of the National Curriculum. 

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

Is Maths Mastery Right for the EYFS? | Learning and Development | Teach  Early Years


This term in Math’s, the children will be focusing on comparing and measuring the height and length of objects using non-standard and standard units of measure. 

Later, this term they will be focusing on division, halves & quarters, position and direction, numbers too 100, time & money.



In English, this term we have come across some toys that get lost in in space! Throughout the term, the children will be describing lots of

 different characters and settings, participating in discussions and role play, and planning their own story (Wow, what a busy term!).

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)
