Year 1

Welcome to Year 1


This year the Year 1 team will be made up of Mr Findler and Mrs Parker.

The transition from Reception to Year 1 is a huge moment in your child’s educational journey, but Mrs Parker and I will do our upmost to ensure your child will develop a range of skills in a fun and safe environment. 

On our class page you will find information about what we will be learning this term and any other information. 



During this term we will be covering a range of topics across different subject areas. 

RE – Families, Belonging and Waiting

Maths Mastery – Numbers to 10, addition and subtraction within 10, shapes and patterns, numbers to 20, addition and subtraction within 20.

English – Stories from other countries, food poetry, and instructions. 

Topic – Our local area, changes in food, healthy eating and clay houses. 

Science – Seasonal changes and materials. 


Home Learning

Home learning will go out every Friday, which will consist of either maths, English, topic or RE.  We encourage parents to support children with home learning to ensure any misconceptions can be addressed at home.  Home learning is expected back in school the following Thursday.
