Spring Term 2022

Well here we are in 2022 - Happy New Year to you all! We hope you had a magical Christmas time with your families. 

This half term our topic will be ‘Emails from the Pacific’. This topic will help develop our geography skills and will also incorporate Computing and Design technology too. We are going to be designing, making and tasting our very own Japanese food – how exciting!

We will be starting the term of with a character description in literacy. We have had a surprise crash landing in our playground and we need to find a new friend for Beegu. In maths, we will be extending our knowledge and understanding across the range of topic areas and applying our knowledge in different contexts.

TTRS and Numbots is an online platform that are children can use to support with number and timetables.  Keep working hard and we will continue to see those scores soar!

For Year 1 children, homework will be set weekly using Seesaw. This homework consists of the weekly spelling list, reading, times tables. Children will be tested on their spellings each Friday. On the weekly homework sheet, there will also be a short update about our literacy and maths learning in class so that you can stay up to date with your child’s learning.


Reading is a key part of the curriculum in Class 1.  Children will read each day in RWI sessions.  They will bring this book home each Friday to practice with you at home.  This will ensure children embed their phonic knowledge and become fluent capable readers.  Please ensure the book is returned each Friday.  Thank you. 

We am sure that this is going to be an exciting half term filled with adventure and learning.  2022 – here we come!


Quick reminder:

PE is on a Wednesday.  Please ensure your child comes into school in their PE kit on this day.  A quick reminder that PE is a white t-shirt, black or navy shorts or skort and a black or navy tracksuit for colder days. Trainers should also be worn on this day.   PE will start Friday 10th September.
