Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 Badgers!

Our topic this term is Paws, Claws and Whiskers. Year 1 have immersed themselves in the world of animals during English and Topic lessons. To kick start our learning in Year 1, we made animals out of paper plates to create our very own Zoo!

During our English lessons, we have been reading the story of 'The Tiger who came to tea'. We sequenced pictures to retell the story and wrote a shopping list of ingredients, just incase the tiger comes to visit us for tea! We are starting to look at the story of Dear Zoo and have already thought about what our favourite pet would be.

During our Maths lessons, we have been looking at Place Value. We have practised our counting and recognition of numbers to 20. Since we started in Year 1, we are developing our independence and are moving on to comparing groups of objects.

PE Day

Year 1's PE day is on a Friday. Please make sure your child's PE kit is in school.


To help support reading at home, each child was given a letter detailing different acivities they can do with an adult to support word reading and comprehension. Each child has a set book change day and will change their books once a week.
