Welcome to Hedgehog Class




Dear Parents/ Carers,


As you might remember at the Parent's meeting at the start of the year we explained that once the children were more settled into the KS1 structure we would change the way that they were given their maths homework so that it was the same as the rest of the school.


Now that we are halfway through the school year we feel the time is right to do this.

As from next week the children will be set weekly tasks on MyMaths. These tasks will still be linked to the topics we have been covering in school.

Your children will be bringing home cards with their log-in details, so please look out for them in their book bags.


If you have any questions or problems, please speak to your child's class teacher.


Many Thanks,

The Year 1 team.



Welcome back Hedgehogs. I hope you have had a lovely week and enjoyed spending time at home with your families, I look forward to hearing about the fun things that you did.


We have lots of exciting things to be learning about this half term and I'm sure that you will have lots of fun learning them.


In English we will be using the story 'The Colour Monster' by Anna Llenas to help us make predictions about what might happen in stories. We will also be writing a prequal to the story to explain what happened to me before retelling the story with our own twist. The children will be focusing on writing sentences with the correct punctuation and including a range of adjectives to add details. They will also be using their phonics learning to help them with the spelling of key words.


In Maths we are building on our learning of last half term as we explore Place Value again, We will be looking at numbers up to 50 and exploring how the numbers relate to each other. The children will be learning how to partition the numbers and thinking about the tens and ones that make up each number before using this knowledge to explain their reasoning. We will then move on to look at measurement. Will be investigating how to work out the length, height, capacity and volume of a range of objects.


In the afternoons we will be exploring London in Geography. The children will be learning about some of the main landmarks found in London. They will then use maps and the 4 main compass points to give directions. We will also be learning about the countries that make up the United Kingdom and their capital cities.

In Science we will be looking at the Animals, including Humans. The children will be thinking about the five senses and why they are important to humans. They will be learning about different animals and the things that they need to stay alive. They will be thinking about whether these animals are carnivores, herbivore or omnivores.

In PE this half term we will be continuing with our Judo lessons.


If you would like some suggestions for places to find information for the children's homework then please look at the links listed below.

If you have any questions please find me in the playground at the start or end of the day.

General reminders:

We are currently having PE lessons on Thursday's. We will still be visiting the Library on Friday's and the children need to bring their library books in then so that they can choose a new book.

Please bring reading books to school every day - we will normally change them on a Monday.

Also, please make sure your children's jumpers are clearly labelled and that they have a named water bottle in school everyday.
