Spring Term 1


Welcome back to the spring term of year 1. The children have made a great start to the term and are showing great maturity and determination with the new challenges the term brings. The topic this half term is 'Superheroes' and the children have already thought of many different questions they would like to find the answers to over the next few weeks.


Please see the curriculum letter below and this half term's home learning and the Year 1 book list for this terms reading challenge.

Reading Challenge


This term the whole school has been set a reading challenge. The challenge for Year 1 is to read 20 books by the week after the Easter holidays. The children should aim to read the books with you and independently if they are able to. The list for Year 1 is below. A record sheet will be put in the back of your child's reading record book for you to fill in with them. Bookmarks will be given out and stickers will be added to the bookmark for every book your child reads. When your child completes the reading challenge they will receive a certificate in Friday praise assembly. The children are very excited to start the reading challenge and with your help will find very enjoyable and foster a love for reading a wide range of books.
