Welcome to Year 1


Class Teacher: Miss R. Baines

Teaching Assistant: Mrs L. Smith 


Welcome back year 1. Our autumn 2 topic is 'Fire, Fire!'


We are going to be learning about lots of different things relating to the Great Fire of London. We will have a special visit from Samuel Pepys and we will be investigating how London has changed. In Maths we will be continuing our knowledge of number and addition and subtraction. In Literacy, we are going to be reading stories with repeating patterns. A busy but exciting term ahead. 



  • PE is on Tuesday  your child's PE kit should remain in school throughout the half term. We will be going to forest school on Friday afternoons, please ensure your child has their wellies in school.
  • Please read with your every night in order to ensure your child progresses in their reading and encourage them to sound out each word.
  • Help your child practice sentence writing, using cursive letters and to take care with the presentation of their work.


Thank you for your continuous support smiley


Year 1 had a fabulous time at Blackpool zoo, we saw lots of animals and we walked around saying our poem from Literacy. We loved seeing the animals and watching how they move. We then had a lesson about Penguins, Possums and Pigs.

Year 1 had a wonderful morning with Real History Alive learning all about the Great Fire of London. We dressed up and danced, we learnt how the people in 1666 fought the fire and we heard about why the fire spread so fast. Take a look at the photos above to see everything we did.
