What are we learning this half term?

Spring 2 


This half term in Year 1 we will be learning...


Collective Worship

Throughout each half term we will be focusing on a different value each week. The values we will be exploring are respect, love, forgiveness, service, friendship and peace. We will be listening to and responding to a range of Bible stories that teach Christians about the importance of our values.


Don't forget to complete your value tasks! They could be included in our next newsletter and be displayed in our worship area!



This half term we will be looking at the story 'Where the Wild Things Are'. The children will write their own portal narrative. As part of the non-fiction focus, they will write a information text based on the story.



Reading Eggs


Each half term, we will be accessing Reading Eggs on a weekly basis. The aim is for every child to complete a minimum of 3 reading sessions per week.  


Most of these sessions will be completed in school, however it would be extremely beneficial for children to be accessing it from home on a weekly basis as well.  The aim of this programme is to improve children's reading and comprehension skills, by quickly adapting to meet the exact needs of every child.

  • Double numbers to 10
