Welcome to Year 1

We will be sharing lots of photographs of all our fabulous work on our Twitter class page. Follow us @HolyFamilyL8_1B @HolyfamilyL8_DH

We hope you continue to enjoy looking at all the wonderful things we will be doing in class on our Twitter.

Heroes and Heroines

This half term we are learning about a local heroine, Kitty Wilkinson and the work she did across the city. We will find out about the legacy she left right on our school’s doorstep! Some of our amazing staff and family members will hopefully share some of their first-hand experiences with us.


On the theme of washing, we will be sharing a brilliant book.


‘How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth’

Through ‘Talk for Writing’ the children will be learning about how to write a set of instructions. We will also use some non-fiction texts to find out about other creatures.

Don’t forget those seeds we planted last ½ term, because we’ll be using them to help us write planting instructions too!

Please check the file below to find out what we’re learning about this half term.

Year 1 Phonics Check begins on Monday June 7th, 2021

.Homework will be sent out on a Friday.

We hope that you and your child are enjoying sharing one of our Read, Write Inc texts. It is vital that these are returned on Friday.
