St Peter's Community Primary School

Year 1

This term in Blue Class...

And so, we begin another term…. It’s going to be a very busy one especially as we approach Christmas!

As per our curriculum letter and topic web you will see that our new topic ‘The Earth Our Home’ is very much science based as we will be learning lots about animals and their habitats. This will be complimented by our literacy text, the title of which is yet to be disclosed!

Please do support your children by listening to them read to you from their banded book each day, as well as practising the phonics sheets sent home and, if you can find the time, please do read to them from a story book either from school or one of your own from home or the local library. The more exposure they have to reading, including listening to stories, the better readers they will be.

We will continue to have PE on a Wednesday afternoon, and Friday morning so please do send your child to school in their PE kit on these days. A reminder that our PE kit is a white T shirt and black/navy shorts or tracksuit bottoms and trainers or plimsolls.


Please ensure that your child has their bookbag at school every day. In their bookbag they should have, their banded reading book and their reading diary.

Please send your child to school every day with a water bottle. There is plenty of research to show that drinking water regularly to keep properly hydrated really does aid learning.

Please make sure your child’s jumper is very clearly marked with their name. We very often struggle to read names on jumpers and if they are not named it is impossible for us to know which child in which class a school jumper belongs to.

A reminder that PE kit is a white T shirt and black shorts or tracksuit bottoms at this time of year and trainers or plimsolls which should only be lace-up if your child can do their own laces.

As the weather becomes cooler and more unsettled, please ensure that your child has a coat every day and other accessories to suit the weather such as hats and gloves.

We look forward to another fun filled term with your child.
