We do PE every Monday and games every Thursday - please remember to leave your PE kit in school

We do Forest School every Friday - we will be out come rain or shine so we may get muddy! Don't forget to bring your forest school clothes - ideally something you don't mind getting messy! 

What we’ll be learning this half term –


Our topic this half term is Treasure Island.

What better way to start the year than with pirates!! We will be covering our Geography, Art, DT and Computing though this topic which is sure to spark some exciting learning. We’ll be looking at maps, designing our own pirate coins and making a feast fit for a pirate crew!



RE – The Domestic Church

The children will be talking about their families and will be learning that together we are all part of God’s family. We will be discovering that God loves us all and loves us all for our differences.



Science – Materials

Children will be exploring materials such as plastic, wood and fabric and sorting them by their observations. They will then investigate the materials to discover more about their properties and possible uses for them.




As a fun and interesting start to the year we will be talking to children about their brains! We will be discovering a little about how their brains work and how they learn and remember things.


City in the Community


We have been very lucky this half term to have Kris from Manchester City coming into school to work with us!

We've been learning lots of new skills and it's been lots of fun.

Don't forget to have your PE kit in school on Thursdays! 


Forest School!


We are absolutely loving our trips out to Forest School on Fridays! What a brilliant excuse to get muddy whilst learning!


In Year 1 your child will receive regular, weekly homework.

Spellings will be sent home each Monday to be practised at home with you, and will be tested on Friday.

Homework books will be sent home on a Thursday, to be completed and returned to school by the following Tuesday.

Please read with your child for 5-10 minutes each night and sign their Reading Record. Reading Records will continue to be sent home each night to be returned the next day.
