Sparrows & Swifts


Welcome to Year 1!

In year 1 this year, the children will be immersing themselves within our topics of:

  1. Toy Box
  2. Seasons
  3. Paws, Claws and Whiskers
  4. Arr you ready?
  5. Life in London
  6. Superheroes HQ

Over the year, the children will get to meet a pirate, come up close to some animals and work with a professional artist.

We hope to develop the children’s geographic, historical enquiry, artistic and technological skills to allow them the freedom to enjoy their learning and experience a variety of opportunities for independence.

In Maths we will cover counting to, from and across 100, adding and taking away within 20, counting in twos, fives and tens. The children will learn to tell time to o’clock and half past, identify the different denominations of money and solve one-step problems involving multiplication and division.

The children will get to write a range of stories and non-fiction. They will learn to use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces as well as exclamation marks and question marks. The children will learn how to add simple prefixes and suffixes including un, ed and ing. 

Home learning

To deepen their understanding and to build on these creative elements in school, we have included several enrichment tasks in their new homework menu. Please take the time to support your child when completing their homework to share their excitement of this topic.

When you spend time with your child at home, please encourage them to broaden the range of books they read with you. We also thank you for your support and dedication to allow the children valuable and additional reading time at home.

Our PE day is Wednesday.

The children are brilliant at remembering their PE kits but please remind them on their PE day.

If your child does not have a Salfords PE kit (as it is being ordered or misplaced), could you please try to ensure that blue or black coloured items of clothing are used.

Finally, we would like to thank you for the continued support you give as parents to our Year 1 children and Salfords Primary School. Our pupils try to show as many school values as possible on a daily basis because they aspire to be great role models for the other children!

If you ever have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact either class teacher.

Thank you and 'Be your best'!
