Year One

Homework Topic – Year 1: St David

Dear Parents,

I hope you have all had an enjoyable and restful Easter break and that you are looking forward to the busy summer term ahead.

We will be revisiting a lot of familiar concepts this term to consolidate and build upon your child’s learning as well as taking on plenty of new and exciting challenges and activities.

In Maths, we will continue to work on the 4 operations (adding, subtracting, dividing and multiplying) and aim to extend your child’s understanding and confidence by using amounts of greater value and applying their knowledge in a variety of contexts. We will be taking a closer look at measure, including height, weight, width and capacity.

In Literacy there will be an emphasis on the children becoming more confident with the skills they have been introduced to, as well as supporting them with spellings and grammar to become imaginative and creative writers. We will be looking at books from the Power of Reading scheme to support the development of all Literacy skills. As you are aware, the Phonics Screening Check will take place later in the summer term and I look forward to meeting with you to discuss this on 27th April.

Comparing our local area to other places will be the focus of our learning in Geography. In Science we will take a look at everyday materials and their uses. The Resurrection, along with other faiths, will be explored in R.E.

P.E. will be on Thursdays or Fridays during the summer term but please ensure your child has their P.E. kit with them in school every day, as additional opportunities for P.E. can and do arise. Please clearly label every item of clothing, including socks and plimsolls!

Thank you for supporting your child in becoming a confident and enthusiastic reader by reading with them every day. Reading books are changed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please note that reading books and red reading record books should always be kept in your child’s book bag – the adults in our classroom read with the children every day. Please be reminded that you too must sign the red reading record books when you share a book with your child.

Homework and spellings will continue to be sent out on Fridays.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Yours sincerely,


Class Teacher
