Dear parents & carers

Please find via the link below some useful information about the curriculum in Year 1.

Year 1 expectations.


We have had a wonderful first full week back in school, the children have worked extremely hard, getting to grips with the new class routines.  It has been lovely getting to know the children and hearing all of the exciting things they have done over the summer holidays.

We have started out first big topic, Flight, and have learnt about the first hot air balloons and aeroplanes, we are looking forward to learning about space travel next!


  • Book bags and reading books should be sent into school each day.
  • Please label all belongings with children’s names, this includes PE kits, book bags, coats and water bottles.
  • Children should have both their indoor and outdoor PE kits in school at all times.  They will be sent home regularly to be washed. 
  • Homework will be set using Class Dojo/Purple Mash on a Friday, to be in by Tuesday if possible. You will also find homework on our newsletter each week (see above) along with a list of spellings we will be practising in school that week.


Useful Websites 

Bug Club: All children have been allocated books on Bug Club to read. Their individual log in details will be placed in the front of their reading record books.

Purple Mash: Children will have their personal log in details put into their reading record book for Purple Mash. The children all know how to navigate Purple Mash and there are lots of learning resources available. We encourage children to practice logging on and off Purple Mash independently.

Oddizzi: Oddizzi is an e-learning resource and community that immerses children in the real world. There are lots of geography resources available for the children to access at home. Their log in details will be in the front of their reading record books.
