Year 1: Maple, Pine

Year 1 weekly update - Friday 30th September

Dear Parents/Carers,

This week the children have continued learning the story of The Three Little Pigs. They have created a new character, to replace the big bad wolf, and have written a description of their character.

In maths, we have been learning to compare sets of objects, and numbers, using the language of greater than, less than, and equal to.

In science, we have been learning about the materials that are used to make everyday objects. We drew pictures of things in the classroom that are made out of wood, plastic, metal and glass.



Reading – please read your school reading books for 5-10 minutes, 5 times each week. Remember to record this in your reading log.

Maths – please play NumBots 3 times a week.

Spellings homework will start soon!


Read Write Inc. Parent Information Meeting - Year 1, 2 and 3 parents


Next week, our Reading Leaders (Mrs Sayers and Miss Willey) will be holding some information meetings for parents of children in Years 1, 2 and 3 who are learning phonics through our Read Write Inc. programme. These sessions will give you an overview of the programme and some helpful tips for supporting your child's reading at home. Even if you have attended a Read Write Inc. parents' meeting before, we recommend attending again to refresh your memory and keep up-to-speed with changes that we have made this year. This meeting applies to all Year 1 parents. 

We will be holding two meetings:

Wednesday 5th October @ 2:30 - 3:00

Friday 7th October @ 9:10 - 9:40

Both meetings will cover the same content, so it is only necessary to attend one. 



Visit to St Andrews Church

On Thursday 13th October, Year 1 will be walking to St Andrews Church in Stratton, where the children will have a lesson on creation with some church members. This will all take place during the morning and we will be back in school in time for lunch.

We need 6 parent volunteers to walk with us and join us for this visit so that we can meet safe adult to child ratios. Pine and Maple will be going at slightly different times.

Please let us know if you are able to help on that morning.



Year 1 will be having a week of swimming lessons at Splash in the week beginning 17th October. This will be happening during the school morning and we will need parent volunteers to walk with us please.

If you are able to help on any of the mornings that week, please let us know.



Starting next Friday, 7th October, Miss Smith and Mrs Baker will be starting a KS1 choir. During this time, children will learn to sing a range of songs from different genres and eras. If you wish to sign your child up for choir, please do so via the School Comms app by Wednesday 5th October.



Bring a book from home

Each week we will ask a child from each class to bring in their favourite book from home to share with the class. We will inform you through our newsletter which child’s turn it is to bring in their book for the following week.

Next week:

  • William from Pine please bring your favourite book to school.
  • Zac from Maple please bring your favourite book to school.



Have a lovely weekend,

The Year 1 Team
