Welcome back to school Y1!

I hope you have all had a fantastic Christmas break with your families. I am wishing you all a very happy new year too!

This term your Class teacher will be Miss Haynes and you will have support from Mrs Van-Rusellt, Mrs Cross and Miss Greatbanks.

With every new year comes a fun term full of learning and for this term we are learning about THE ZOO! We will be delving deep into the history of Chester zoo and how it has changed over time, we will be exploring the different animals that we find in the zoo and we will even be creating some jungle art work using zoo animal. I am just so excited and I know that you are going to love this topic as much as I do.

Here are our top 5 zoo books that will help to immerse us into our zoo learning:

  • Class two at the zoo by Julia
  • This zoo is not for you by Ross Collins
  • The tiger who came for tea byJudith Kerr
  • Above and below by Patricia Hegarty and Tanera Simons
  • Zoology by Joelle Jolivet

On February 11th the children will be having their zoo theme day where the children are invited to come in school dressed as their favourite animal. It will definitely be a fun filled day.

Important information:

Pe will be on Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday afternoons.Please make sure your children come to school dressed in their PE kits.

Our spring term class worship will be a virtual worship this time and will be sent to you after February half term.


Supporting your child's learning at home is very important and is something that we encourage in Y1. This term your children's homework will continue to be:

  • Encouraging your child to read their phonics book three times
  • Completing wider reading by reading or listening to their challenge book
  • A weekly maths activity
  • zoo bingo homework

I am so excited for another term with you all Y1 and I know you are just going to make me so proud each and every day.

Remember to shine bright, work hard and be the super star that we know you can be!
