Year 1

Dear Parents / Carers,

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


We are beginning our new topic “Being Sorry”. The children will be thinking and talking about ‘What makes a good friend?’ We will be talking about how friendships can break up and learning about how Jesus helped his friends, who had been arguing, to resolve their differences.

Home Learning: Talk to your child and ask them if they can you tell you what makes a good friend.

English, Science and Geography


This week the children will be continuing their learning about a variety of homes around the world and the different materials and textures used to build houses.  They will be reading a poem called ‘My Home’ and writing their own poems using the same structure of simple rhymes and phrases to describe their home.

The sound of this week is awpaw, yawn and drawing
The word of the weeks is ‘somesocks on my ears.

Home Learning:
Talk to your child about the style of house you live in. Is it a detached, semi-detached, terraced house or a block of flats/tower block.  What materials were used to build it? It is important that your child reads EVERYDAY to an adult.  Continue to encourage your child to practise and learn their weekly spellings thoroughly.

Mathematical Development

This week the children will be learning to share in order to solve division problems and use RUCSAC to solve one-step problems involving division.
Home Learning: 
Help your child to share their toys between two people to see how many toys each person gets.  E.g.  6 toys shared between 2 people (6÷2=3).
