Year 1

Dear Parents / Carers,

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


This week we will begin the new topic ‘Meals’. We will be talking about meals which are special to us, and why.  We will be learning about the Eucharist being Jesus’ special meal and how this relates back to the Last Supper. We will be sharing with the children what happens at Communion, and that Mass is the parish family gathering together in celebration.

Home Learning: Talk to your child about a special meal you have all shared.  For example, this could be a birthday party, Christmas, First Holy Communion or a Baptism celebration.

English and Science

This week we will be concentrating on completing our non-fiction books about 'The Seasons'.  The children will be learning about an index, its format and how they are used. They will complete the index page for their non-fiction books.

The sound of the week is: ‘ur fur, turn and Thursday

The word of the week is: ‘here’ e.g. happy excited rabbits everywhere


Home Learning:  Please continue to hear your child read every day.  Reading is a pleasurable activity and the children enjoy talking and answering lots of questions about the book they are reading. Perhaps you could share the reading by taking turns reading a page or a line each.  Please help your child learn the weekly spellings.


This week we will continue to focus on the topic ‘Time’.  The children will be using their knowledge of o’clock time, hours, minutes and seconds to solve word problems.

Home Learning: Please continue to talk to your child about what time they get up, what time they have their breakfast and leave for school as well as what time they go to bed. Can they tell you the time when the clock shows o'clock time?

General Information 

In the coming weeks we will be posting videos that can help children to consolidate their learning further at home so please take time to log into the school's fronter website this weekend using the log-in and password sent home last week in your child's book bag.

Thank you, once again, for your continued support.
