Hello everyone! Welcome to Year 1! We are very excited as this is our first full academic year in our brand new school :)


Our topic for this Autumn 1 term is 'Where I Live.' In Geography we will be learning about our local area of Liverpool. In History we will be finding out about the different types of houses and homes. To launch this topic we have arranged a bus trip to visit a variety of wonderful sights around our city of Liverpool! This will also fit in with our Art work this term as we will develop our sketching skills by sketching a variety of famous Liverpool landmarks. During DT lessons we will learn and develop a variety of techniques as we create a variety of homes. Our Science lessons will allow us to learn about the ever changing seasons as we move from Summer to Autumn.

In English we will describe settings and characters from a variety of fiction texts. During Maths we will continue to develop our counting and number skills.

PE will be on a Wednesday morning with Miss Beaumont, so full PE kit is required. Your child will also have a second PE lesson during the week and so their PE kit should remain in school at all times. Please ensure that each item of your child's PE kit has their full name and class written on the labels. Many thanks.


Reading books will be sent home each evening and as always we would like you to read each night with your child. Please ensure that you update their reading record and is completed when they have read. Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be completed by your child and returned back to class by Wednesday.


We are looking forward to a very exciting, fun filled and successful year in Year 1!


Mrs Simpson, Miss Roberts & Mrs Crewe
