Year One

Number of pupils: 30

Teacher: Mrs A. Brunyee

Teaching Assistants: Mrs S. Chiu, Miss F. Lavelle & Mrs M. Berry. 

Hello Year One, 

Our new class topic is: It's Good to be Me!

Autumn Term

We will be learning about our family history, looking at photographs of parents and grandparents as children and now. What are the similarities and differences? How have things changed? We will make our own family trees and timelines to show how we are connected! We will be comparing toys that we play with now and toys from the past. 

In Science, we will be learning about how to keep our minds and bodies healthy. We will look at the human lifecycle and investigate who the tallest child in the class is! We will test our senses with a range of different investigations. Make observations about the changing seasons. Explore how the weather and the environment changes at different times of the year.

We will take part in daily Read, Write, Inc lessons to help us improve our reading, focussing on accurately decoding words. We will be reading sentences and infer information using pictures as clues.

What is your favourite story?

Our class text will be: Can I Build Another Me? By Shinsuke Yoshitake

By appreciating what makes us unique, we can become caring members of our community.

For Mathematics this term, we will be working on our number formation and recognising numbers as words. We will make pictograms of our favourite toys and record the data accurately. We will compare heights and see which objects are the tallest or the shortest. Think about how the hours of daylight change in autumn and compare different times.  

In our R.E lessons, our topic is 'Creation' and will give thanks for the beauty of the world that God created. We will think about the consequences of people’s actions which can spoil the world and what we can do as courageous advocates to make a difference.

In Art and Design, we will be studying the life and works of Picasso and creating our own portraits based on his work. We will look in mirrors to observe our own features before creating our portraits using 2D shapes in the style of Picasso.  

Christian Value: Creation



Class Prayers

Lunchtime: For all we eat and all we wear,
For daily bread and nightly care,
We thank you Heavenly Father. Amen

Hometime: God in Heaven, hear my prayer;
Keep me in thy loving care,
Be my guide in all I do,
Bless all those who love me too. Amen 


UNICEF Rights and Responsibility: Article 15

(Freedom of association) Every child has the right to meet with other children and to join groups and organisations, as long as this does not stop other children from enjoying their rights.




School Council

Our council representatives were chosen by the class in a democratic vote. Each child performed a speech to persuade the class to vote for them. Well done to everyone who put their names forward. Our winners were: Ella C and Lucas P. 


Golden Apples

We have promised to try our best to gain our 5 leaves for: Service, Community, Justice, Friendship and Creation.

Children's University

At the end of Year 1, all credits that we have earned move forward to Year 2. We gain credits through attending after school clubs, participating in sports teams for the school, jobs we do in school and also by having our passports stamped at learning destinations for example: museums and clubs outside of school.


Physical Education

Children will require their PE kit in school at all times.
They will need a red t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps. Children will not be able to participate in P.E if they do not have their P.E kit in school.


Online Safety

Please be aware of online safety when our children go on the Internet. The link below offers information and advice about keeping our children safe online. It also has a valuable reminder of the importance of keeping passwords secure.
