St Peter's Catholic Primary School

Loving and Learning together, with Jesus.

Year 1

Welcome to Year One's Class Page


The children have all had a wonderful half term and have been busy enjoying our topic called 'Little Gardeners'. We have enjoyed identifying different trees and plants, making close observations aswell as creating art work by drawing flowers. We have made leaf rubbings, nature art and even growing our own plants! 


We are all working so hard on our phonics. Well done Year 1, keep up the great practise of real/fake words and practising your key sounds.





Please ensure all children have a labeled reading packet and these are brought into school daily. Children's reading books and red reading records will be kept safe in the packet when not being read. Children have been gaining independence with changing their coloured book independently on colour book change day (Monday and Thursday). Well done everyone! 



Personal Belongings


Please can you make sure all your items are labeled clearly with children's names. This includes jumpers, coats, hats, scarves, water bottles, snack pots. These sometimes fall off or fade away, so please keep checking your childs belonging :) 




The children may bring in a healthy snack from home if they would like to. A healthy snack is a piece of fruitvegetablessalad or plain breadsticks, plain rice cakes, plain popcorn. Please no juice.

  The school will provide a fruit snack for your child each day.

All children must bring in a named, reusable water bottle each day.

Milk continues to be available for those children who have subscribed via the cool milk website.




Homework will be uploaded to the Teams page, every Tuesday. It will contain three days worth of English and Maths tasks linked to our daily learning that should be completed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening. If you cannot complete the homework on the set nights then feel free to move things around to suit your child's needs. If you get stuck at home, please talk to us and we will help you to find a solution.




Reading records and reading books will be kept in each child's reading packet. Please can children bring this in daily and put in our classroom box. Please ensure reading packets have children's names on clearly.


Children will bring home 2 reading colour band sharing books each week. Children will be reminded and encouraged to change this book independently on a Tuesday morning and Friday morning.  


They will also be given a Phonics focused book once a week to help practice and learn key sounds as well as improving decoding skills. Please keep the phonics book safely in their reading packet. Some children will also have key flashcards to support their phonics. Please practice these at home. 


 Please continue to read and share books with your child on a daily basis and record reading experiences in their reading record.





Our PE days are Monday and Friday. Please come into school dressed in the PE kit.



Thank you for your support,
