Year 1


Welcome to our Year 1 class page. We are very excited to be going back to school and have a super topic for the children to enjoy and learn about.  Your child will be taught by Mrs Spencer and Miss Cartwright. For more information about the Year 1 class, please see our welcome booklet below. 

The topic for this term will be 'Dungeons and Dragons.'  The children will be learning about castles, why they were built and the different parts. They will also look at the jobs in a castle and different objects that were used and how these compare to today's everyday items. 

Running alongside the History and Geography lessons, the class will be investigating mechanisms and learn how to make a drawbridge. They will also be developing their key skills during Art lessons by using printing, colour mixing and also talking about the work of famous artists.  For a full list of what we are learning about in this topic, please see the knowledge organiser below. 

As mentioned in the below 'Welcome to Year 1' information, children will be required to sit a Phonics Screening Check in June. We have attached an information leaflet for you below which explains the check in more detail.

We look forward to working with your children and yourselves in the coming academic year.

Mrs Spencer and Miss Cartwright
