We have so much fun reading in Year 1! Reading is at the heart of all that we do, from daily reading, phonics, buddy reading and end of the day stories there is often a book out in Year 1! As well as this we have a book as our focus for literacy/topic and often other subjects too! There are lots of adults that listen to us read 1-1 in Year 1 however it is also really important that children read at home too! All children are encouraged to read at home at least five times a week. If children read at home at least five times a week and a comment is made in their reading diary, they will receive a reading token. This will then go into a prize draw in Friday’s celebration assembly, where one token will be picked out of the gold box at random and the child on the winning ticket will win a BRAND NEW BOOK to keep. We have a huge selection of books for all ages and interests for the children themselves to choose from. Our classroom is called ‘Garden classroom’ and this is our reading corner:

Books we are reading this term:

Our topic this half term is ‘London to Africa‘ with a focus on London during Spring 1. Our topic work will be based around geography skills and finding out about London and the geographical feautures. We will also be thinking about the difference between the countryside and a city. We use books to help our learning across all subjects. Some of our key books we will be using this half term to help lead our learning:



We go to the library every other Monday afternoon. Miss Goold will post a reminder on our Class Dojo page to remind everyone if it is our week to visit the library.

Forest School 

We love learning outside in our Forest School.Forest School is an inspirational process that offers children regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland environment.

In Year 1 we have Forest School every Tuesday afternoon. Children should come to school in suitable Forest School clothing that is appropriate for the weather (and won’t matter if it gets a little bit mucky!) as well as bringing in waterproofs and wellies in a seperate bag!

Spelling Tests

In Year 1 we do weekly spelling tests on a Monday morning. We practice our spellings in school and at home to make sure we are always learning and working hard!

We do PE every Thursday in Year 1 so it is really important that we have our PE kits in school so we can get stuck in and enjoy!

We observed chicks hatch and grow and looked after them as part of our science topic!
We love getting busy in our continious provision areas. It is an opportunity for us to extend our learning, work as a team, improve our communication and have lots of fun!
