Lockdown thanks

We don’t know how you did it but you did! All the hard work you have done over the past weeks is amazing and has almost had us out of our jobs! We have missed them all so much and we cannot wait to see them all again. We have a great week of activities ready to transition them back into school life.


Reading books will continue to be changed once a week. Please continue to read with children as a part of your/their daily routine!

Who Sailed the Seven Seas?

Our new project is based all around pirates Arrrrggghhh so keep your hands on your treasure or we might just bury it (did you know that’s actually a myth?!). This geography-based project will see children learn compass directions amongst other things!


This Term we will cover explanation texts, wishing stories and riddles – all based around pirates me hearties arrrggghhh.

During handwriting the children will continue to learn their cursive letter formation.


During Maths this term we will be exploring measurement! Namely, length, height, weight and capacity. The children especially need to start compering these so feel free to start messing about with empty containers at home, guessing how many cups of water will fit in them…


Spellings will continue to be tested every Friday. Please contact your teacher if you do not have a sheet to learn from.

Many thanks, Year 1 team.

We are a rights respecting school.
