Please make sure children have a PE kit in school and that all items are labelled as it is very easy to get confused!


In Year 1 we recommend children to read twice a week at home and for this to be recorded in their school reading diaries. Please make sure children bring their reading diaries to school every day as there will be lots of opportunities to read during the school week.


Homework books with ideas to support your child's learning are given out each half term. A letter will accompany the book to explain how it works. The children will have the opportunity to share their work with the class towards the end of each half term. 


Your support with learning at home is greatly appreciated!

Children will be learning all about animals, their habitats, diets and basic structures. They will also learn about hot and cold areas of the world, I wonder which animals like to live in different climates? We will be drawing and painting animal patterns and making our very own animal puppets! 



Summer term: Our topic this term is Our World! 


Children will be learning all about the world around us! We will be looking at maps and compasses, investigating the local environment and talking about the human and physical features of Birkdale.
