Year 1






We hope you have had a lovely, restful summer break and are looking forward to lots of exciting learning in Year 1 this year. Your teachers are Miss Ali and Mr Gibney.


Mrs Hassanjee, Mrs Duncanson, and Mrs Szanto also support the learning across both classes.

Mighty Discoveries


This term we will be exploring the four seasons, looking at animals including dinosaurs and creating structures, alongside lots of other fun experiences. During English, our focus will be on our handwriting, sentence structures and starting to use adjectives. In maths we will be securing basic number and counting skills and beginning to add and subtract numbers to 20!


The text we are focusing on this term is Grandad's Island. Please ask your child about the story!



We are looking forward to all the fun learning that will be taking place this term.
