Year 1

Dear Parents / Carers,

Here is an outline of the learning we will be covering in the coming week


We will continue with the topic of ‘Change’. The children will be writing their Lenten promises in order to think of ways they can prepare for Easter during the time of Lent. 

Home Learning: Talk to your child about your own Lenten promises and help them to think of ways they can help you around the house. E.g. tidying their rooms or helping with the washing up.

English and Science

The children will continue to focus on their traditional tale and they will be looking at different point of views in the story and then writing from different characters perspectives.

Sound of the week: ‘ure’ e.g. adventure injure and pure.

Word of the week: ‘says’ e.g. ‘stopannoyingyoursister’  

Home Learning: Talk to your child about their reading book, can they tell you how the character is feeling and why? Please help your child learn their weekly spellings thoroughly. They should be able to read, write and spell them withoutadult help. Please help your child to continue to progress in their reading by hearing them read and reading their story book to them each night. 


This week the children will continue to focus on halving and they will be learning to identify and label ½ of an object. They will then identify the value of different bank notes and put them in order of the smallest value to the largest value. E.g. £5 £10 £20 £50

Home Learning:Show your child different bank notes so they can see the differences and help them to identify the values.
