Year 1


Welcome to Year 1 frown


Below are links to class pages, topic and curriculum information

and, if your keep scrolling down, there are links for enriching your child's learning beyond school, be that using the internet or by going to local events. 


In the Autumn term we begin the school year with the exciting theme of "Castles", including a trip to Corfe Castle and lots of castle role play in the classroom. 


After that, we explore how and what different people celebrate in the UK and around the world in our topic, "Fabulous Festivals".


We begin our new year and new half half with the topic, "Africa", where we explore what it would be like to live in Africa and what amazing animals we might see there. 


​​​​​​​As the spring emerges in the second half term of the Spring term we enjoy  the topic, "Glorious Gardens", during which time we hope to learn the names of many wild flowers that emerge in the springtime here in the UK.


After Easter, we begin the summer term with the topic, Oceans and Seas where we learn about what we can find on the coastline and at sea, both near and far. We also hope to go to the beach during this topic to test out our knowledge of seashells.


In the second summer half term we practice our story telling and story skills in our topic, "Once upon a time", when we learn more about traditional tales, some familiar and some that are perhaps new to us.


Do you have particular knowledge or skills

related to any of our topics?

If so, please let us know! We would love to involve you in the children's learning and enrich their experiences. 


Are you able to help out on any of our trips or to hear readers?

If so please speak with your class teacher. Thank you!

Your help makes such a difference and makes things possible too.

Year 1 Common Exception Words


Links for Home Learning 

Below are many links to help you to continue learning at home. 


Phonics - Tricky words

These are "common exception words" - words for which the phonics rules don't usually work, or, they contain phonics sounds that the children haven't yet learnt.
