Welcome to Year 1



Teachers  - Miss Wilson and Mrs Shanks

We would like to welcome you to the Year 1 class page. We are looking forward to working co-operatively with you to support the development of your children throughout the year.

In Year 1 we strive to create a smooth transition from Reception into Year 1. We do this by continuing to provide a variety of learning experiences to promote understanding which children are familiar with from their time in Reception. We also begin to create a more structured approach to learning and developing independence.


Autumn Term


Spring term


Summer term



The children will extend their knowledge of number and place value up to 100. We will be counting forwards and backwards from different starting points in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s. We will be reinforcing correct number formation. We will improve their understanding of addition and subtraction with a particular focus on number bonds up to 20. We will also further our understanding of 2D and 3D shapes and measurement. We will introduce the children to simple, practical multiplication and division and learn about halves and quarters.


Children are expected to read every day to an adult and a comment is needed to be written in their reading record at least three times per week.

Homework will include; weekly spellings to be tested on a Friday and a homework task linked to our maths or topic work.


Children will need to come to school wearing a red P.E. top and black shorts (in addition, any suitable outdoor clothing can be worn in cooler weather e.g. tracksuit).
