Year 1 - ( 1KR & 1JR)

Welcome Back (What's the Big Idea?)

We hope you all had a good holiday and are now all refreshed and ready for the start of this year.

During this year we will be looking at 'Big Ideas' which starts off during Autumn term with Superheroes and Celebrations. During Spring we will be looking at Turrets & Tiara's, as Plants & seasons. We finish the year by looking at Being an Inventor and Africa.

Educational Trips and Visits

During the year, we have several visits and trips planned, which include a Rabbi visit, St Mary's Church, Wollaton Hall, Farm Visit and a trip to Twycross Zoo.
More details, regarding each of these, will be provided via Marvellous Me nearer the time.

Maths! No Problem

In Maths, we will be following the Maths! No problem program.


Each week your child will have a set of words to learn and remember. Please do spend just 5 minutes a day going over their spellings with them.


The autumn term starts with our online safety sessions, which are part of the Digital citizenship & technology lesson. We follow this up with Walking with Dinosaurs.

Books this Autumn Term

Our focus books this term are Supertato by Sue Hendra. Meet Supertato! He's always there for you when the chips are down. He's the superhero with eyes everywhere - but now there's a pea on the loose. A very, very naughty pea. Has Supertato finally met his match?

The gunpowder plot (Non-fiction)
The Gunpowder Plot could have potentially destroyed the House of Lords, taking with it countless lives, including that of King James I of England. How was this great tragedy prevented?


In Science, we will be learning about our senses and looking at the seasons


P.E. takes place every week on Monday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has their bag with them.


In Spanish we will be finding out how to greet people and give instructions, our numbers from 1 - 20 and about our family. We finish this term by looking at Christmas and other festivals from around the world.
