PE Arrangements for Autumn Term

PE lessons will take place on Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning for 1C and Tuesday afternoon and Friday mornings for 1G . Your child will need a white T-shirt, black shorts or joggers and plimsoles which will need to be kept in a named drawstring PE bag. Long hair needs to be tied back and earrings should be removed.

Year 1 Maths Curriculum Autumn Term

Read, write and order numbers up to 20 and beyond. As part of our Inspire Maths scheme, we will continue to practise correct number formation, and solve addition and subtraction problems involving numbers up to 20 and beyond.  Problems will be represented with numbers and symbols (+, – and =).  We’ll investigate 2D/3D shapes and their properties, and practise our measuring skills by comparing different lengths and measuring with non-standard units of measure.  Please help your child to learn the addition and subtraction ‘Learn-Its’ for this term.   We will continue to carry out ‘BMBT’ & CLIC challenges, trying to improve our score each week! You may like to help your child to practise the number facts at home too!  Don’t forget to practise your number pouch too!

Year 1 English Curriculum Autumn Term

As Resilient Readers, we will be sharing a variety of texts about ‘Food’.  We will look at simple recipes.  As Writers, we will make our own instructional texts about different types of food.  After half term, we will be focussing on ‘Stories from other Cultures’.  We will develop our storytelling skills using Pie Corbett’s words and actions. We will continue to learn to read and write our sounds.  Please help your child to practise these by using the phoneme mat in the back of their Reading Record and continue to practise the words in their Word Pouch.  A Library Book and Reading Book will be sent home weekly.  Weekly Spellings, Maths and English homework challenges will continue.   Your help and support with reading and spelling is invaluable.  Our English curriculum SFA (Success for All) will continue.  This skills-based curriculum helps to develop the children’s reading and comprehension skills, basic grammar, phonics and spelling, and encourages co-operative learning. 

Don’t forget to complete the Reading Challenge every week!  We challenge you to read for five minutes, five times a week at home!  Come on Year One!  We haven’t topped the leader board yet!

Year 1 Spellings

Spelling Picture | Free Photograph | Photos Public Domain

Spelling challenges will be sent home weekly.  You might like to practise these words with your child so that they are confident during their spelling challenge.  We will also practise these words regularly in school too.  IT IS NOT ESSENTIAL THAT THEY GET THEM ALL CORRECT, ALL THE TIME.  IT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAT YOUR CHILD CAN APPLY THESE SPELLING RULES TO THEIR WRITING ALL THE TIME.  We need to learn to spell all the Common Exception Words (CEWs) by the end of Year One.  These words will be displayed in our classrooms and removed once we have all learn them off by heart.  Termly updates will be sent home, so you can see how our child is progressing with this target!

Year 1 Bulletins

Internet Safety


In Year 1 we have been learning  about how to stay safe online. The internet and online technology is a fantastic way to complete our learning, stay in contact with family and friends and play games. We know we must ALWAYS ask an adult before we go on the internet and that our grown-ups at home and school can help keep us safe online. We have learnt there are SMART rules we need to follow to keep us safe online.

S = Safe. We must keep personal information to ourselves, never post or tell someone online your full name, home address or school. Remember personal information can also be seen in the pictures you share.

M = Meet. We have discussed only talking to people you already know online and making sure an adult knows who you are talking to. Always tell an adult if someone you speak to online asks you to meet them. If an adult is concerned they can report this straight away on www.thinkuknow.co.uk 

A = Accepting. Before you click on or open something think very carefully and check with an adult as you never know what it might lead to.

R = Reliable. Unfortunately no-one owns the internet, no-one decides what can be put online and therefore you cannot trust everything you see and read online. Some things might be out of date, incorrect or not entirely true. Speak to a grown-up to check information online and check other websites too. There are lots of great websites we use at school to help with our learning such as:

T = Tell. We learnt that we must speak to an adult before going online. If anything online worries, upsets or confuses you, you must tell an adult at home or school. 

There are lots of resources online to discuss internet safety with your child. Here are some links to website you might like to use:

Year 1’s Brilliant Beginning – Holiday Project

After the Christmas Holidays, Year 1’s new topic will be ‘Food, Glorious Food’.  We will be linking our learning with this theme.

In order to get your learning started, we would like to challenge you to record some information or facts about ‘food’.

We very much appreciate that the holidays can be a busy time, so it is not intended that your ‘Brilliant Beginning’ project should take up lots of your time. 

We would suggest a ‘collection of simple ideas’.  These can be presented   however you like  –  lists, PowerPoint presentation, photographs, pictures, poster, or any ideas you have too.  Don’t forget to make your work eye-catching  – why not use bright paper, felt tips, or images printed from the  Internet! You might like to upload your work to your SeeSaw page? The choice is yours!

You might like to use the following ideas:-

¨ (We appreciate that some of these suggestions may depend on  developments with our current situation).

¨ An alphabetical list of your favourite foods

¨ Draw or write about your favourite food

¨ Go on a ‘food hunt’ – photograph what you see.  Label your     photos.

¨ Find a story where ‘food’ is the main theme – Write about your    favourite part.

¨ Choose a fruit or vegetable and create a ‘Did you know . . . ‘ poster

¨ Research ‘foods from around the world’

¨ Favourite songs or rhymes about food

¨ Any other ideas you have too!

Please could you bring your ‘Brilliant Beginning’ project into school on

Tuesday 5th January.  We are looking forward to sharing all your ‘fascinating facts’.

Many thanks for your continued support.  Have fun and Merry  Christmas.

Mrs Taylor, Mrs Ryan and Mrs Allen

We want to be challenged at Trimley St Mary.

We have been using the language of BAD to extend our learning.  We have been taking on challenges to show if we are brave, (paddling) adventurous (snorkeling) or daring (diving)!


At present, Parent Helpers will not be able to come into school.  However, when this changes we will let you know, as in the past …. 

Parent Helpers Welcome!

We have welcomed parents into school in the past, to help our children to improve their reading skills.  When the current situation changes, if you are able to spare a morning or an afternoon, on a regular basis, please let your child’s teacher know.  We are very appreciative of your additional support, and it makes a huge difference to the children’s learning.  We would love you to come and join us!   Thanks for your continued support.
