We've been busy in 1AW this week! We've been writing about pirate jobs, making and labelling pirate ships, practising our fine motor skills, counting to 20 and making pirate underpants after reading 'Pirates Love Underpants'! 

What we're learning this half term...


Our topic in Year 1 this half term is pirates and we will be having lots of fun reading and making maps, following and giving directions and craft activities.

Through this topic the children will practise reading, writing, counting, motor skills as well as co-operation and listening through games and role play. As well as working with an adult and completing independent tasks, the children will have opportunity to access areas of continuous provision such as role play, creative area, construction and reading area as they did in Reception. 


Each day the children will be practising their phonics, reading, and writing through Read Write Inc lessons.  As part of our pirates topic, we will be reading books and writing labels, lists and sentences about pirates . 

Maybe you could visit the library and find some books about these topics to share with us. 

Practicing holding a pencil and forming their letters correctly will also help them to make progress. 

There are lots of ebooks available to read at:


In Maths we will be practising counting carefully, recognising and ordering numbers to 20, finding 1 more /less and practical addition and subtraction.

Please practise counting at home and number bonds to 10. 

RE:Domestic Church: The Family

Through this topic, the children will be learning about what it means to be in a family and that everyone belongs to the family of God.  They will learn about the love and care shown in a family and God’s love and care for every family.

At home you could talk about what makes everyone special in your family.

Daily reading is extremely important. We are listening to your child read every day in school and we ask that you also hear them read every day for 5-10 minutes at home. Please sign their reading record every time you read with them.
