Year 1 Mrs Riley and Mrs Thompson


Croeso i Blwydden un / welcome to our Year 1


Our topic for the first term is ‘All Change’. Through this topic we will be exploring areas such as seasons, animals, life cycles and cooking.

We have been asking the children what they would like to learn and different activities they would like to do in class. 

The children came up with some fantastic ideas which we will be using to inform our planning throughout the autumn term.



We will be working on phonics and learning the High Frequency words (which will also be sent home). We will be reading lots of books and studying the characters, setting and problems and writing our very own stories. We will be working on using our full stops, capital letters and finger spaces when writing, as well as using wow words and time connectives.



We will be counting in 2's, 5s and 10's and practising our number formation, ordering numbers correctly in different sequences and using our number bonds to 10 and 20. We will be learning the value of money and how to use money using real life scenarios and playing in our own class shop. 



Our PE day is a Friday and we have games on a Monday (weather permitting). Please can the children have their PE in school. It can be left on their pegs and taken home to wash each half term. 



Please can you read with your child as regularly as possible and learn the high frequency words that have been sent home. We will begin sending one piece of homework a week after Christmas.


Reading Days

The children have a new reading book each week, their book and book bag needs to come in each week on their designated day so that they can be changed.


Please feel free to pop in with any questions at any
