We are really looking forward to our topic for the Spring term. We will be looking at Fairy Tales and Castles. Starting off with the 3 little pigs. This is going to be out text for the term with the history focus of Welsh Castles.

The children will be bringing home an individual reading book and reading record at the start of the year. They will be listened to individually weekly as well as guided reading sessions too. 

It is really important that you help us by sending in their reading books with a little comment and signature when you have listened to them read. Once we can see they have read at home we will change their book. 


The Spring term homework menu can be found below. The children can choose one task a week from the learning menu and send them in when they are complete. They will be celebrated and shared with the class and then displayed.

The children will have PE every Thursday afternoon. Please can they come in wearing suitable footwear, joggers or sports bottoms and a T-shirt. This clothing and footwear will help us ensure that the children are safe whilst taking part in activities. 

Woodland Wednesday

On Wednesday Afternoons we will be heading into the woods. Please can you ensure that they children have wellies and waterproofs to take part in these sessions. 

Fruit and Drinks Bottles

As a school we provide fruit for the pupils. This costs £5 per term. Alternatively if you would like to send some in please feel free to do so. 

Please could all children have water bottles in school on Monday. They will be sent home on Friday for a wash and need to be returned Monday the following week. 

Thank you for your support, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you want to discuss anything. 

Kind Regards, 

Year 1 Team.
