Welcome back to school Y1!

I hope you have all had a fantastic Easter break with your families.

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 SEASIDE! We will be delving deep into the history of the seaside, exploring seaside places around the world and creating some seaside art work in the style of Maud Lewis and David Hockney.

Our talk for writing topic will kick start our topic off as we immerse ourselves into the story of the 'lighthouse keeper's lunch'. We will then follow this on by writing instructions on how to make a disgusting sandwich and a smoothie.

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

  • The lighthouse keepers lunch by David Armitage and Rhonda Armitage
  • A first book of the sea by Nicola Davies & Emily Sutton
  • The storm whale by Benji Davies
  • How does a lighthouse work by Roman Belyaev
  • Billy's bucket by Kes Gray & Garry Parsons

Important information:

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

The children will be completing their phonics screening check in the week of 6th June. Please keep practicing your phonics sounds at home Y1. 


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
  • Seaside 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!
