Welcome to Class 1GT.




PE  is on Wednesday and Thursday

Please ensure your child has a named PE kit in school.

PE will be on Wednesday and Thursday every week. No jewellery is allowed during PE lessons for safety reasons.

Please also ensure that your child has a named water bottle in school at all times (the plastic throw away bottles are best). Remember, we only allow water in water bottles!


Our school day begins at 8.45 am  - all Parents and Carers are welcome

to attend Family Learning time.

Our school day finishes at 3.15 pm.

ALL children should wear school uniform every day of the week including Golden Time days.








Each Friday your child will be sent homework to complete. The hand in date is the following Wednesday. Place your child's folder in the Homework Box in the classroom. 



We have also sent home our Year 1 targets in your child's homework file. Work on these with your child to help them achieve their targets.

A copy of the targets are below. 



We are really enjoying learning about Coding with the Hour of Code website.

Which lesson can you get up to?



Our next topic will be based on the story of The Three Little Pigs.

We will be investigation which materials are best for building houses and designing our own buildings.

In History we will be looking at different houses through time and in Geography will look at the different types of housing near school.

In English we will be learning to retell the story of the Three Little Pigs with actions and enthusiasm!

We will be writing the story and descriptive sentences about different houses.

As always, we will be focussing on using:

  • a capital letter at the start of a sentence
  • full stops at the end of a sentence
  • finger spaces between the words
  • conjunctions like 'and' in our sentences
  • our best handwriting that clearly shows tall letters and those that have a tail under the line
The words for our weekly Spelling Tests are linked below.



In phonics we are working hard to learn phase 5 phonemes. Open the Phase 5 phoneme mat (link below), choose a phoneme and see if you can think of a word that has the phoneme in it.


Have a go at reading the words in the power point (link below) with phase 5 phonemes in. Warning! Some words are crazy alien words!



‚ÄčIn Maths we will be learning about using money.


 Show your child some different coins. Ask them how much each coin is worth. Let them pay for low cost items in a shop or play shops at home.



What coins are these?

How many pennies make up each coin?



Here are some games to play at home.





We have been learning number bonds to 5 and 10. Please help your child to learn them.

We are learning subtraction facts too. For example (in red)...


0 + 5 = 5         5-5=0                             0 + 10 = 10     10-10=0

1 + 4 = 5          5-4=1                              1 + 9 = 10       10-9=1

2 + 3 = 5         5-3=2                              2 + 8 = 10      10-8=2

3 + 2 = 5         5-2=3                              3 + 7 = 10      10-7=3

4 + 1 = 5          5-1=4                              4 + 6 = 10      10-6=4

5 + 0 = 5         5-0=5                              5 + 5 = 10      10-5=5

                                                             6+ 4 = 10        10-4=6

                                                             7 + 3 = 10       10-3=7

                                                             8 + 2 = 10       10-2=8

                                                             9 + 1 = 10       10-1=9

                                                            10 + 0 = 10      10-0=10
