Autumn Term 1

'Off on a Pirate Adventure!!'



In Autumn term, our topic is ‘Pirates’. We will be hearing lots of pirate stories, writing instructions to make a pirate hat and using non fiction books to find out about ‘real’ pirates from the past.

We will be learning about upper case letters and practising writing in sentences using full stops and capital letters.

We will have phonics everyday and will read with an adult in our guided reading group twice a week.



In Maths, we will be practising counting aloud up to 100 and recognising teens numbers. We will be finding 1 more and 1 less than given numbers and recording early addition and subtraction using mathematical symbols.

We will do lots of practical maths to help us learn new maths ideas and will be encouraged to use new maths vocabulary that we have been learning to explain how we solve problems.

We always strive to be super independent learners!


The children will read at least once a week in their guided reading groups.

Year 1 are encouraged to change their home reading books on a Monday and a Thursday . We have a basket with different coloured books in and the children can choose a new book once they have read it at least 3 times. The 1st time they will be getting to know the book. The 2nd time they will be reading the book with more clarity and beginning to understand it. The 3rd time we encourage parents to use the guided reading questions provided to ask the children about the story as this helps when we come to our half termly assertive mentoring tests :) It is important that the child can not only read the book but also understand what they are reading. We will re-test the children at the end of this half term and this will determine whether your child will change a book band / colour :)

This half term, we will begin to have our spelling tests every Friday. New words will be sent home on a Friday for the children to practice at home. 


PE Days

On Monday and Fridays we have P.E.,  so please ensure your child has their full P.E. kit in school, (tshirt, shorts and pumps) all earrings must be removed or covered up. If your child needs a new P.E. kit they are available to buy at the school office.

Dates for your diary:


We look forward to each and everyday in Year 1 and hope that all of the children enjoy their time with us as we continue to achieve excellence.

We are on Twitter and the children will be tweeting thoughout the day!

Thank you 

Mrs Gayton, Mrs Clark & Miss Boyle
