Welcome back to a busy and exciting Spring term in Year 1.


In maths we are learning all about numbers and shapes. We will be learning all about telling the time and thinking about 2D and 3D shapes. Please keep counting in 2's, 5's and 10's at home. 



In English we are listening to traditional rhymes and learning poems to perform. We are thinking about stories with familiar and fantasy settings and will be writing our own. Please keep reading with your child at home for at least 10 minutes every night.


We will be busy learning about materials and their properties in science and in DT we are planning and creating our own playground equipment. In art, we are very excited to be learning about pointillism and  will be drawing and painting our own pictures.


In computing we are using purplemash and you can use   your child's login to access this at home.



Geography sees us using and designing our own maps. As you walk around with your child, please discuss what buildings and features you can see that can be added to a local map.


PE is on Tuesdays and Thursdays and we are focussing on our throwing and catching skills. Please ensure your child's named PE kit is in school on these days.
