Welcome to term 6 in Year 1. Our project this term is all about the seaside with a focus on the past and present and is called ‘Have you got your Bucket and Spade?’. Please click the link below to find out what we’ll be learning this term.

Have you got your bucket and spade?

The national phonics tests are approaching and will be taking place in the week commencing Monday 12th June. Please continue reading with your child at home to support their phonics progress. A sheet with additional fun activities will be sent home. Please see a teacher if you have any questions about this.

1H – Tuesday 11th July

Sports Day

Sports day will be taking place this term on Wednesday 21st June. You are invited to come along and cheer on the children. 1H and 1B will have theirs in the morning, and 1R will be in the afternoon. There will be a free BBQ for children at lunch time and families are welcome to pay for their food too.

This term spelling tests will continue to take place every Friday. The spelling lists have been sent home already. Feel free to ask if you would like another copy.

Children across the school have been learning about the 17 sustainable development goals as set out by the United Nations. In Year 1 we have been thinking about goals to preserve marine life, to protect the forests, and to promote equal opportunities for good education. Ask your children for more information about what they have found out.


Many thanks, Year 1 team.

We are a rights respecting school.
