Welcome to Year 1 – Y1BB

Our staff for 2018/19:

Mrs B Brown with Teaching Assistant Mrs Frith

Y1BB have made a promising start to the spring term. The children have settled in well and they are showing good behaviours for learning which I am happy to see. The children are making a good effort to bring their planners and reading folders into school every day and they are enthusiastic to change their book regularly which shows that they are enjoying reading at home.

Our literacy learning will link to our topic question “What mysteries belong to the sea?” In Literacy, we will read the story “Sharing a Shell”; the children will retell the story, order and product a piece of writing linked to the book. In addition, the children will learn all about the Arctic and produce a fact file all about the Arctic.

In maths we will look at the following topics:

Place value, Calculation and Shape

Curriculum Topic


 What mysteries belong to the sea?


The children will explore a range of units within this topic such as reading the book “Sharing a shell and The Rainbow Fish” We will look at boats and materials and the children will perform a simple test. They will make a boat and see if it will float or sink. The children will also learn about the Arctic, produce, and information fact file all about the Arctic. This learning will equip the children for our ‘WOW’ outcome, which will be an Art Exhibition where the children will display a collection of their work this term.


What parents can do to support your child at home: 

It would be great to have your support at home to help your child progress. To support your child at home you can help them learn their weekly spellings which will be stuck in their planners. They will be tested each Friday and new spellings will be given each Friday. Also read with your child every night and sign their planners to show that they have read.
