Welcome to Year 1

Welcome to Whales!

Welcome to Summer 2 - our new topic for this half term is 'The Great Outdoors'.


We are considering how we use our school grounds and the local area. Please check out the parent information sheets and the homework star to see how you can best support your child's learnng journey.

Calling all budding artists:


We have been given exciting details of the 'Walk to school design a badge challenge'.


Each year 'Living Streets' host a competition to design the walk to school badges for the following year's campaign.

The winning designs will be turned into 400,000 badges and distributed across the country to all schools who participate!

Summer 1 Amazing Humans

We are excited to begin our new topic in Summer 1.

We hope you check out our parent sheet and our homework opportunities to find out a little bit more about the learning experiences and how you can support your child at home.

From a tiny ant to an elephant

Spring 2 - From a tiny ant to an elephant:

Welcome back.

This half term we have changed our topics around slightly to accommodate the current COVID situation and will be working in school and at home with our topic 'From a tiny ant to an elephant'.

The children will be exploring the animal kingdom and using scientific vocabulary to support classifying animals, sorting into categories and how they adapt to survive and thrive.

We look forward to seeing the children soon.

Winter Wonderland

Welcome to our new topic 'Winter Wonderland'. 

The children will be exploring our amazing world through Art and Geography topics, thinking about how different winter can be around the world.

We will be exploring non fiction texts alongside some exciting stories from different countries. Our topic will start off with a discovery of a special object and we will use this to write some great texts. Later this half term we will use a light source (hopefully the sun!) to explore how shadows change over a day and consider why this might happen.

The Year One team would like to wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas and look forward to seeing you again in 2021!

Welcome to the next Autumn half term.

Our new topic - Toy Story, is based around toys from the past.


This is a history based topic and we will be asking you to speak to your parents to find out about what toys they played with when they were little. What were the toys made from? Is it the same as toys today, that you play with? What about your grandparents?

If you have any photographs of their favourite toys you can send these into school via our address.

We look forward to working hard together and having some fun as we move towards Christmas.


Welcome to the Autumn term. It may look a little different to our normal way of working but we want to still make our classrooms exciting and a fun place to be for the children. We are looking forward to welcoming your children back and learning through some exciting opportunities. Our first topic this half term will be ...
