Here is the Year 1 timetable for Autumn term.

Our P.E. day is Wednesday, please make sure your child has the correct kit with them. 

Class Rules

We follow the whole school non-negotiables:

  1. We always present our work at the highest standard, so we can be proud of it.
  2. We always correct our spelling.
  3. We know our success steps and always use them, this helps us to achieve our lesson objective.
  4. We always respond to our teachers marking as this helps us to improve.
  5. We use the grammar taught in our writing and can explain it using the correct language.


In Year 1, we have made our own class rules:

We always use our RICHER values:







Children who demonstrate good RICHER values are rewarded with dojos, special RICHER value stickers, and can even be chosen to be a RICHER value champion! 


The children have been learning about the characters who are based on the RICHER values.

Autumn Term

Our topic this term is 'Toys'. We will be learning about old and new toys and we will be finding similarities and differences between them. We will be reading stories linked to our topic, such as: Thread Bear, Paddington and Kipper's Toybox. In Science we will be learning about our bodies and senses. 


Come back soon to see photos of our learning!



Our topic for this term is all about toys. 


Today we filmed adverts for toys.
