Reading Books

Please listen to your children read daily. When the children are confident with the text, their book will be changed.  Please ensure book bags are in school each and every day as we will be reading with each child throughout the week.


P.E Days

Year 1 have P.E weekly and the day will be confirmed with a sign on the door.  Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school on this day. Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed on these days. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.



Homework is set every Friday via J2E. This will direct you to access Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds where your children will complete an English and Maths task. Please support your child in completing these tasks. Their logins for J2E, Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds can be found inside their reading journals. If you encounter any problems, please speak to your class teacher. 

Class Blog ~ Thursday 22nd October 2020


Year one have had another excellent week in school!

We cannot believe we have already completed one half term!


In English, we have been looking at questions. 

We know that a question asks you something and it can be answered. When written down, it has a question mark.

We have identified questions, written our own and answered questions about the local area to make a fact file. 


In Maths we have been ordering three numbers. 

We started with the smallest number and ended with the largest number. 


In computing, we have continued to learn how to type on the computer keyboard. It can be tricky as the letters on the keyboard are uppercase.


In Geography we have been writing leaflets to advertise Basildon and give people reasons to visit. 

'Visit Basildon because we have lots of parks and open spaces.'

'Come and try our brilliant crazy golf and bowling.' 


In RE we have been looking at how we look after the world. 

We came up with lots of examples of all the good things that we do!

'We put rubbish in the bin.'

'We plant flowers and trees.'

'We look after animals.'

'We cycle instead of using the car.'
