Year 1A

Miss Salthouse

Welcome to Year 1A


Welcome to Year 1, This year we are going to be learning lots and having lots of fun. 


Our Learning Journey:

English: In English we will be focussing books such as ‘You Choose’, ‘Lost and Found’ and ‘Handa’s Surprise’

Maths: In maths we will be doing a lot of work on place value and addition & subtraction. 
Topic: Our first topic for the autumn term is ‘Hot and Cold Countries’. In this topic we will be looking at different climates and animals from the dessert and the arctic.

Science: In science we will be learning all about everyday materials and their properties. 
RE: In RE we are going to be exploring God’s wonderful world and the things he made for us.

Computing: In computing we’re learning how to keep ourselves safe online 


Key Reminders

  • PE will be on a Monday Morning. Please make sure your child has their full PE kit in school each week.
  • Homework will be given out on a Friday please can this be returned on a Monday morning.
  • Reading Books will be sent home each night please can you read with your child each night.
  • Your child can bring a water bottle into school with water only. 



In year one we have daily phonics lessons which will progress at a speed suitable for each child. A helpful way to help children improve with their phonics at home is to read daily with them. If you would like additional support for your child’s phonics journey there are lots of helpful videos online. I would recommend the following: RWI Speed Sounds (Set 2 & 3)

Class Dojo:

Class Dojo is the most affective with to communicate with me, and is how I send out important updates and information. If you need to speak to me please do so via Class Dojo, or feel free to speak a member of staff from our class before or after school.


We are so excited about the year ahead and we can’t wait to make some wonderful memories and have lots of fun learning in year one! 

Miss Salthouse, Ms Hartnett and Miss Worden.
