We have downloaded some of the activities to keep your child(ren) busy and learning while they cannot attend school. You can find them below.

Year 1 Curriculum overview

A big hello from all of the Year 1 staff.


We hope that you are doing well and looking after yourselves. 

We have a challenge for you. For our topic about animals, we were due to make a free standing animal enclosure. Unfortunately, we haven't had a chance to do this.  During your time at home, we would like you to make an enclosure for one of your toys. Or perhaps you would prefer to build Rapunzel's tower!

We would love to see pictures of these and any other activities you do. They could be posted onto our school Twitter account @ChrissiesSpeke

Remember, we miss you all, be good, have fun, listen to your grown up and stay safe.

We'll see you soon.


At 9am every morning, starting from Monday 23rd March, Joe Wicks is hosting a 30 minute free fitness workout for children of all ages and even adults can get involved! This can be found online by going to

Exercise is a great way to help us feel happier, more energised and more optimistic.

Me, Orla and Euan will be joining in. I hope that you do too. Post some pictures on our school twitter page so that I can see you.

Love from Mrs Metcalfe


In Year 1 we teach phonics daily. Phonics is the learning and application of the letters and sounds children need in order to read and write. Phonics is split into phases based on children's development. Links to phonics games can be found at the bottom of the page. Please play these games with your child.

Welcome to Class 1Mc.

Our teacher is Mrs Hanstock.  Our learning support assistant is Mrs Riding.


We always try our best and have lots fun while we learn in Year 1!


Class information


Diary Dates




We would recommend that you leave your child's PE bag in school until half term. 


PE is on a Wednesday so please ensure your child has full kit including red t-shirt, blue shorts and black pumps. Ensure all of your child's PE kit and school uniform are clearly named.


Book Bags


We don't have a set day to change reading books.  Please can your child bring their book bag to school everyday. Thank you. It is important that you read with your child when they bring home a new book. Please check for any letters that may have been placed in their book bag.




Wednesday is spelling test day in Year 1.  This is also the day the children will bring home their words for the next weeks test.  Due to parental demand all children now bring home a slip to inform you of how well they have done in their weekly test.


The Spelling Shed and Maths Shed

Our school has signed up to 'The Spelling Shed'. Your child has taken home a password which will enable them to log onto the site. The spellings for the week will be on there for the children to learn in a fun way. There will also be a score board. Let's make our class be the top spellers in the school






Homework Menu


Every half term, a homework menu will be given out with a selection of tasks to be completed, across all areas of the curriculum. It is your choice how many you complete, however you must do at least one and hand it in by the end of the half term. Your completed work will be celebrated.

Autumn Term


Our first half term in 1Mc will be  exciting as we will be getting to know our new teachers, areas of the classroom and how we learn in year 1.


We will be learning about the different ways we can make numbers, use number lines and have even practice how to spell numbers to 10!


Our first English topic is Alliteration in poems. We will then look at the Percy the Park Keeper story, After the storm. We will learn a shortened version of the story, create actions for it and answer questions about it. We will re-write it changing it from an Autumn setting to a winter setting. 


Our first topic will be 'Seasons'. We will learn about how the weather and trees change throughout the year.
