St Peter's Catholic Primary School

Loving and Learning together, with Jesus.

Year 1

Welcome to Year One's class page.

Next week we will be learning about arrays. If you happen to have any left over egg boxes or packaging/the  plastic trays from biscuit and sweet boxes, please can children bring them in.


Well done to the children for their fantastic Book Day costumes. The children had lots of fun sharing their favourite books and characters and it was great seeing all your different ideas. We enjoyed a fun filled day at school, where we shared our favourite stories with other classes, we all contributed to a whole class story and we even voted for our classes favourite book to win an Oscar. We enjoyed acting the story of the Three Little Pigs, and built a new house that would hopefully not fall down. We used lots of exciting materials including straws, marshmallows, icing sugar and biscuits. Even though it was quiet tricky to build a structure, we had lots of fun and did not give up.

The winners of the Story in a Jar will be announced next week.


Thank you for all your internet safety posters, they were all fantastic and we received some very interesting and informative posters. The winning posters have been announced in classes and will be put on each classes ICT display.

Well done to everyone!


Our  topic for this half term is Traditional Tales. Please spend time sharing and enjoying as many traditional tales as you can with your child.


On this page, you will find our Year One curriculum map, which gives the overview of learning across the year; weekly homework; and any additional information we need to communicate with our parents. Our current topic is Toys, where we will listen to creative stories as well as learning about old and new toys.


Please can you ensure children have their own labelled water bottles in school each day but please do not send in juice. School fruit is provided for break time but children are welcome to bring in their own healthy snack. This could include: breadsticks, plain rice cakes, plain popcorn and fruit. Just a reminder that there are allergies in 1S. These include: strawberries, bananas and kiwi fruit. Please be mindful of this when packing your child's snackHowever, due to severe allergies across the school, nuts and any dairy products are not allowed. 

We thank you for your co-operation.


Please ensure all uniform including PE kits are clearly labelled to avoid any confusion with each others belongings. We will be sending home any items which need labels.


We will be setting homework on a Friday and it will be due in on Wednesday at the latest. Homework can be found in the homework folder at the bottom of this page. In addition to the weekly homework we encourage daily reading with your child that should be recorded in their red reading record. The children will be changing their own books from next week.
