Year 1!


We have been very busy learning in Year 1 this term. We have been looking at measuring length using  a ruler in Maths. 

This half term we are looking at the Egyptians! We have been learning about pharaohs and painted portraits of Tutankhamun who became a phararoh at the age of 9! 


We read individually with your child at least twice a week and advise that they read at home with an adult every night. Your child will get a star on their star chart every time they read at home, when your child fills their star chart they will choose a prize out of our class treasure chest. Along side individual reading we also take part in guided group reading using a range of different books and texts every Monday.  Every week your child will be learning a set of spellings, they will spend all week looking at these spellings and will have a spelling test on Friday, if they get all of their weekly spellings correct they will receieve a certificate and move onto the next set. 


Our P.E sessions are every Thursday so please ensure your child has the appropriate kit in school for this.  Requirements are:


  • Black shorts
  • Yellow T-shirts with the school logo
  • Plimsoles (Compulsory)


Year 1 are very lucky to be having our P.E sessions currently being taken by Barrow AFC. We have been looking at a variety of sports such as football, basketball and hockey.


We will be going swimming every Tuesday morning throughout the academic year. This will be starting on Tuesday 13th September. Children are to arrive promptly at 8.50 in order to register before boarding the bus to the baths. Please remember to send your child with appropriate swim wear (trunks for boys -no Bermuda/shorts style) and a towel. 


If you have any issues or anything you would like to ask/discuss please do not hesitate to speak to myself or Mrs Berry, our teaching assistant. I am always available after school should you wish to speak to me.
