Birkdale Buddy Class: 5H




Indoor PE: Wednesday morning 

Outdoor PE: Thursday afternoon


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 expect children to read at home most nights or whenever possible and for this to be recorded in their 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. 


Spellings will be sent home on a Friday and we ask that children learn these spellings to consolidate their learning in phonics each week. 


Your support with learning at home is greatly appreciated!



Autumn term: Our topic this term is Superhero's! 


Children will be learning all about heroes and villains in traditional tales and throughout their history topic. They will also be exploring their super senses in science as well as which materials would make the best superhero costume. We think everyone in Year 1 is SUPER!



Spring term: Our topic this term is Amazing Animals! 


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. I wonder what we will see on our journey? We will also be exploring structures and how we can make a structure that is strong and stable.
