Welcome to Class 1!

Taught by Mr Cannell and Mrs Walton, with support from Miss Farwa.


General Reminders 

HOMEWORK is given out on a Friday afternoon and is to be brought in on a Tuesday. SPELLINGS are handed out on a Tuesday, to prepare children for their spelling test on the following Tuesday.                                                                

Children will need their PE KITS (black shorts and a white t-shirt, with pumps or trainers) on a Tuesday and Thursday for PE lessons. PE kit can stay in school throughout the week. Children should have their trainers on both of those days, weather depending on where their lesson will take place. Earrings must be removed for sports. Please make sure that uniform, as well as PE kit are labelled with names.

Reading and Literacy

READING RECORDS should be written in by an adult at home once a week to show any progress made with their accelerated reader book. A member of staff will also read once a week with each child, and write in their accelerated reader quiz scores. Children will also read independantly for 15 minutes a day at school, and are expected to do the same at home. Class 1 do Literacy every morning for an hour, working on our writing and comprehension skills. Children will occasionally recieve a comprehension homework, for practice.​​ Our termly project may link with our themes of writing.

This Term in Class 1

This term our project is 'Storyland'. Within this project we will be looking at traditional and fairytales from different eras, learning through lots of history, geography and art. We will be investigating our project along with class 2, participating in a carousel of activities based around the topic every Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. This way, children will be able to interact with another class one day a week, sharing ideas and learning outside of their own classroom. We look forward to reading and basing our writing on a range of stories that we will learn as a class, through drama and song!


Class 1 do an hour of maths every day, practicing our arithmetic, reasoning and problem solving throughout every objective. Currently, we are developing our knowledge of place value in numbers, sorting and counting. Every other week, children will recieve a piece of maths homework, linked to that week's learning. Ask your children to explain 'how they know' the answer to a homework question, or what they have learned at school - to practice their reasoning skills!


If you have any concerns or problems, please come to the door before or after school and speak to one of our class staff members. If required, don't hesitate to make an appointment with us one day after school.

We've got lots of exciting things planned throughout the year and look forward to working with your child and our year 1 families!

Mr Cannell
