Our Topics for this Year

The children will also be joining in with our outdoor learning sessions this term, please see the letter for dates and more information. This year we are also introducing our ‘Starbooks’ an initiative designed to encourage children’s reading and love of books. Each year group has it’s very own top 50 books for the children to try and read throughout the year, these have been especially chosen for their age group including some favourites and some new titles and authors as well.

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to ask – the end of the day is the best time of day to speak to your child’s teacher, though there will always be a member of staff on the door in the morning if you need them.

With Thanks,

The Year One Team

We are really looking forward to getting know the children and our first topic is the perfect way to do that as we learn about ourselves. The children will be developing their writing skills writing about themselves, their families and things that they like to do. We will think about how we have changed since we were babies, learn about our senses and understand how to keep our bodies healthy.


There are lots of new routines to learn but it won’t be long before the children get in the swing and will no doubt be reminding us what happens when. Please remember to bring your child’s reading wallet every day and to use the comment books to keep in touch as well as making comments about reading, these are checked every day.

Welcome to Year 1
