Year 1 - Potter

Welcome to Potter Class



As we enter the second half of spring term, year 1 are learning about Corduroy Bear and Little Bear - who goes for a walk.

Within this we are going to be learning to give computers simple algorithms or instructions, finding out about the different materials that toys are made from and why they are made from those materials. We are also going to find out about what toys in the past were made from.


Our Maths for the half term will focus on place value and adding, taking away, length, as well as comparing and answering word problems using the skills we have learnt so far.


Children should read at home every day (so they can earn their RED awards) and we will change their reading books twice a week. We will also change our library books once a week.


PE kits need to be at school every day, as we have a variety of PE lessons, as well as extra sporting activities. Please ensure that a bag with a white t-shirt, black shorts and a pair of trainers or plimsolls is at school every day.  In the colder months, warm clothing such as a tracksuit should also be sent in.
