Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Croeso i Flwyddyn Un!


Welcome to our Year 1 class page. Here you will find useful information and reminders related to our general routines and activities, as well as links to helpful websites and online resources.


It will also be a space to share and celebrate some of the interesting and exciting activities we have been carrying out in class.


Summer Term Class Information



 This term our topic is 'Land Ahoy!'  

Yo-ho-ho! This term’s topic will be ‘Land Ahoy!’ Get ready to take to the high seas and set sail in search of treasure! This term, we will read information books about pirates including the famous Welsh pirate Barti Ddu, we’ll find out about amazing sea rescues and some interesting sea creatures. Our Science and Technology skills will help us to understand how boats float and we’ll design and make model ships using a variety of materials (please keep hold of your old junk!). We’ll study paintings of boats and do some of our own.

Our map reading skills will help us to identify different seas and oceans, and we’ll learn about some famous sea explorers. Stories of pirates will inspire us to make pirate flags, treasure maps and fact files. We’ll even find out how to sing a shanty! We will learn about the dangers of the sea and how to keep safe and look forward to our annual visit to the seaside. We be working collaboratively with Year 2 and 3 as Criw Carw and looking forward to integrated learning during Thrive Time. If you have any books, photos or other resources related to this topic that you think may support your child’s learning, please send them into school for show and tell.     


Our Literacy focus will continue to be the development of sentence structure, including punctuation, connectives and adjectives. We will use stories, poems and non-fiction texts to inspire our learning which the children are already enjoying!


Maths will involve lots of practical exploration and formal recording. We will be further exploring number to 100, addition and subtraction, time and money. We will be learning positional and directional language to help us navigate around pirate maps and exploring capacity and weight using non-standard units.


Reading Roundabout

Our weekly reading routine will remain the same this term. Please continue to bring your child’s bookbag in on their allocated day for us to read with them and swap their reading books. They will take part in a ‘Roundabout’ of literacy activities each day to support their reading. Please listen to your child read as often as possible and make a weekly comment in the record, these are always really helpful.  Your child will also be able to select a book of their choice from the school library to share with you at home.


PE will be held on Wednesday morning and a Thursday afternoon. Forest school will be on a Friday morning. Please ensure that your child comes dressed in their ‘named’ Forest School clothes. Please can children also bring a spare bag to put their used forest school clothes in to go home.


Thank you for your continued support, it really is appreciated!

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or worries.


Kind Regards,

Miss Harris (Teacher), Mrs Baratt (TA)
