Badgers - Year 1

Monday 28th June


We are completing our lesson by Zoom again and the resources needed for Monday's lessons are below. I have also included a sheet of British coins and notes for Thursday's maths lesson to give you plenty of time to cut one of each coin and note out ready for the lesson.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any problems accessing the resources.

Summer Term


Welcome back Badgers.  It is wonderful to have everyone back in school together again.  This term we will be looking at seasonal change and plants in Science.  In history we are going to be looking at the monarchy and comparing Queen Elizabeth II with both Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth I.  Geography links with our work on seasonal changes in Science and we will also be exploring the different types of weather we experience here in the UK.  In computing we will be building on the work we have done earlier in the year with the beebots and looking at how to make sure instructions are precise.  For our art we will be looking at adding texture to pictures through collage and in music we will further develop our singing skills.


PE or swimming will be on Monday depending on the group your child was in before the Easter holiday.  Those swimming will continue to build their water confidence and kicking skills while the children that are doing PE will be practising their athletic skills.

What are we learning this year?

Welcome to Badgers!


It is hard to believe that the Summer is over and it is time for Hedgehogs to become Badgers. We are really excited to welcome your children into Year 1 and we hope that your children are looking forward to coming back to school, catching up with their friends and learning new things. We are very lucky to have two teaching assistants in our class, Miss Cox and Mrs Naylor. 


Our topic for this term is Toys, a theme I'm sure your child already knows lots about! We will be learning about the history of toys and completing lots of activities linked to toys.


In English we will be using texts such as The Tiger Who Came to Tea to stimulate our writing. We will be consolidating our ability to read, write and understand numbers to 20 in maths, using practical resources and applying our understanding to real life situations. 


Your child will read with an adult at school, sometimes individually, especially during the first couple of weeks when we will be checking your child's book level, and at other times in a group. We aim to provide all children with a reading book at the appropriate level and reading record by Friday 11th September. We will write in the reading log when we have read with your child. We will check your comments in the diaries and count your child's reads weekly. Your child will need to hand in their reading diary and book on a Friday and this will be returned on the following Monday (letter to follow).  They will work towards certificates for 20, 50 and 100 reads! Your child will also have daily phonics lessons and we will closely monitor your child's progress through our phonics scheme.


Our PE day is Thursday and our first session will be Thursday 17th September. Your child will need to come to school in their PE kit and will stay in this for the whole day.


We really look forward to getting to know you and your child better as the term progresses. If you have any comments, questions or concerns we are always available in the year 1 outdoor area from 8.40 in the morning. Please bear with us at home time as we get to know your faces and those of friends and family who pick up your child. It might take a little while for us to check that each child is going home safely with the correct person at the start of term.


Here's hoping for a sunny September and lots of fabulous learning experiences!
