Year 1 - Caterpillar & Peacock

Welcome to Year 1


Welcome back after half term! We have a very busy but exciting term ahead!...


In Literacy the children have been reading The Gingerbread Man. They have been using actions and role play to retell the story, and also creating their own story maps. The children are going to be finishing this Literacy topic by attempting their own 'big write' of the story! 






The Christmas play for this year is called 'Gnome Alone'! The children have already started practising the songs. It's going to be a great performance! Look out for letters and tickets in book bags over the coming weeks. 


Home learning books will be sent home on a Friday, and please return them by Tuesday, so we can prepare them for the following week, and share their work.


Please ensure that you provide earring tape for your child if they have piercings for the day that they have P.E


There is no forest school in Year 1 until 2019. As we are limited for space, please ensure no clothing or wellies come into class until we are given our time slots.



We appreciate that reading with your child every day may not be possible for some families, however, reading and listening to your children read as often as you can will help them with their confidence and fluency in class. When you listen to your child read at home, please sign and comment in the reading record book, so we know if the book needs changing or your child needs to move up a level.



We are always here at the end of the day if you have any concerns or questions.


From the Year One team.

Mrs Boxell & Mrs Skelton (Caterpillar) and Miss Herring (Peacock)
