Welcome back, we hope that you had a lovely Easter break! The children are enthusiastic to make a start on their Summer term learning! Our thematic units are cross-curricular, covering all the traditional subjects as well as more contemporary areas of study such as sustainability and well-being and this terms our new topics will be ‘Light up the World’, ‘Royal Patrons’ and ‘Zero to Hero’.


The Summer term will be a very exciting term for children in Class 1! In English children will continue to focus on the use of capital letters, full stops, questions marks and exclamation marks when writing sentences in fiction and non-fiction contexts based around key figures in history and heroes. In Maths, the children will continue to learn maths through the Mastery approach whilst also building on their knowledge of time. In Science we will be learning about materials and working scientifically to investigate their properties. Our new topic ‘Royal Patrons’ is a history unit, comparing the lives of Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II and our second unit ‘Zero to Hero’ is a thematic unit about heroes and heroines, both past and present, who have overcome major challenges in life and become inspirational figures.


Children in Year 1 will receive regular Maths and English homework. Children will also continue to receive reading books linked to the ‘Floppy Phonics’ scheme and a weekly list of words to read. 


PE sessions for Class 1 will take place on a Wednesday and Thursday.


Please be aware that these sessions may be flexible, therefore children need a PE kit in school at all times.  Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days.


Children will continue to enter and leave school through the KS1 door on the front playground. Late children will need to report to the main office.


If you have any questions/queries, please do not hesitate to speak to us. Thank you for your continued support.


Yours sincerely,


Miss C Hancock

Year 1 Class Teacher
