Year One

Welcome to Year One

Welcome to Year One. We are delighted to have our new class back together again. Year One is a very special year as we gradually move from the Early Years Foundation Curriculum to the National Curriculum. The children are learning to become more independent both personally and academically. Please see the documents attached below that outline what we will be learning about in the autumn term and important information that is specific to Year One.


Year One Home Learning

In the event of your child having to self-isolate, please use the information and resources below to support their learning at home:


Daily Essentials


  • Please read a range of non-fiction and fiction books as well as poems. 
  • Phase 2 and 3 phonics sound mats and tricky words can be found attached. Please go over these sounds and words daily. 


  • We are currently fosucing on recognising numbers 1-30. 
  • Number formation material can also be found attached below for you to practise with your child.

  • Practise writing simple sentences with your child. This can be as simple as what you are going to be doing that day. You can write a sentence from a picture from your favourite book, or any book that you have at home. 
  • This term we are ocusing on capital letter, finger spaces, full stops in the correct place and reading their own work back to check that it makes sense. 
  • Please practise letter formation with your child. Letter formation sheet can be found attached below. 


This week in English, we have been looking at the story ‘One Snowy Night’ by Nick Butterworth. The link to watch the video can be found here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHWTK9u6RxY&t=495s

We have been focusing on looking at the main character - Percy, the park keeper. We have discussed words that describe Percy (adjectives). This could be something that he is wearing or words to describe his physical appearance. Some examples of ideas could be;

  • Green flat cap
  • Warm green coat
  • Fluffy green gloves
  • Big black boots
  • Black spiky hair
  • Pink rosy cheeks

After we generated our ideas, we discussed what makes a good sentence and began to write our ideas within a sentence. We remembered our essentials, capital letter for the start of the sentence or for the name of a person, full stops and finger spaces. Please use the lined paper to write sentences with sentence essentials. An example of a sentence could be –

 Percy is wearing a green flat cap to keep his head warm. 


  • For the following session, we will look at important images from the story and begin to discuss the story in order of events. We will carefully look at pictures and talk about which order they need to go in. Once we have ordered the story children will think of language from the story to compose a sentence orally about what is happening.
