Year 1






Welcome to Year 1's Page!


This term we are focusing on Science. Our topic questions is;


              What would an alien think of Planet Earth?


We will be looking at materials and their properties as part of our scientific investigations, testing whether they are waterproof, etc. We will also focus on Space as an English focus, using the book 'Aliens Love Underpants'. During this term we will be using aliens to help us with our nonsense words in preparation for the phonics test. Our alien may be leaving us notes to decipher!


We are excited to welcome Manchester United in on Tuesday mornings to teach us some football skills this half term.



Don't forget to check the James Brindley Twitter page; @JamesBrindleyPS for more updates too.


Homework goes out on a Thursday and is expected back into school on a Tuesday.

Spellings are sent every Friday and tested the following Friday. Access to the Spelling Shed has been put in the front of your child's reading record. You can use the games on there to practise each week's spellings as well as the paper copy of the spellings, given on the Friday.



Our PE days are Mondays and Tuesdays.

Please make sure PE kits are in school for these days - including pumps.

Please remove earrings for PE days or ensure your child knows how to remove them.


Please take the time to look through the Year 1 end of year expectations below.


 If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to us or make an appointment.


We look forward to continuing our successful year with your child.
