Our School

Class 1


Welcome to Class 1's page, here you will find information about what we are learning this half term


Curriculum Booklets

You can download Class 1's curriculum booklet here.

You can also download the Maths overview sheets for Years 1 and 2. Please note, these are subject to change as and when the need arises.

Class 1's English curriculum can also be downloaded here. Once again, this is a guide to aid our planning and can also change when necessary.


Homework will be sent home on a weekly basis every Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday.

This will be a piece of English, Maths or other work that will be based on what the children have learnt that week in class. When necessary, guidance will be sent home to assist parents when helping their children to make sure they are using the correct methods taught in class. Children should return their homework books when completed to the yellow box at the front of the classroom.

Spellings are also set every Friday for a small test the following Friday. Children can practise their spellings either on paper or on Spelling Shed. Please email if you have misplaced the Spelling Shed logins.

Reading is incredibly important for children at this age and it is beneficial for the children to read for 10-15 minutes daily. Please write in their reading record whenever they have read and use this to communicate with the teacher. Reading records will be checked weekly during Guided Reading. Children are responsible for changing their own reading books and can do this whenever necessary. 

Important Information

PE will be every Thursday. Please make sure that children come into school in their PE kits on this day.

Children should have a named water bottle in class with them at all times. Please make sure all clothing is also named, especially jumpers. Trainers should be provided for outdoor playtime.
