Year 1

Welcome to year one, we are all very excited to have you back with us and start a new academic year!  😊

Our first topic is called ‘We are Superheroes!’ and we can’t wait to get start with some very exciting work.

In English we will be learning about two books ‘Supertato’ and ‘Traction Man is Here’.  We will be making our own comic books and our own superhero potatoes!

What will your super power be?


We will be working really hard to improve our phonics and we will be filling any gaps that we might have from our time away from school.  We will be doing lots of reading and look forward to seeing you do lots of reading at home to move around our reading track.

Our book change day will be a Monday, but please ensure your child has their reading book in school every day so the different adults can listen to your child read every week.  Please also ensure that you have returned any reading books from the previous school year that your child may still currently have.

We will be doing lots of fun activities such as painting in the style of Vincent Van Gogh and learning all about our personal history.  We will also be doing the Sheriff’s Challenge to see how far we can run as a class (hopefully we can beat the others!). 


As per the text messages which you will have received, please send your child to school in their PE kit on PE days (Monday for Ecuador; Thursday for Spain). This is a white t-shirt, black shorts and black or blue tracksuit bottoms and trainers. Please ensure that your child is dressed weather appropriately for this.  Earrings must be removed at home on PE days as staff will not be able to assist children with removing such items.

We can’t wait to see you and begin our exciting year together in Year 1. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter to see some of our fantastic work each week.
