St Peter's Catholic Primary School

Loving and Learning together, with Jesus.

Year 1

Welcome to Year One's class page.


We are looking forward to welcoming you to see our Christmas play next week. If you have not already brought your costume in, please ensure this is completed by Monday. 


We have been learning about the history of toys. For homework we would like the children to discuss and brainstorm some questions that they might ask a grandparent or great grandparents about their toys. For example, what was your favourite toy? What were your toys made from?  Please discuss questions with your child. This does not need to be recorded.


We will not be setting any more spellings this term. Please use this time to consolidate spellings you have been learning and focusing on. We will be recapping this in class until the end term. 


Please see the attached letter regarding our CAFOD fundraiser.  We require as many donations of cakes or biscuits as possible for the children to sell on Thursday.  These could be home made or shop brought.  The children are all very excited about this enterprise.  All profit will go towards CAFOD.  Please ensure cakes do not contain nuts.  Any children with allergies or intolerances will be invited to bring in their own cake to enjoy instead of eating the donated items.  Please see the letter for more details.  


Thank you. 




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 Superheroes.


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. 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.


If you would like further information about learning at St Peter’s, please visit the curriculum section of our website. If you would like to speak to one of the Year One teachers about learning, please do not hesitate in contacting us.

Many thanks for your support,

The Year One team
