Year 1 2021 - 2022

Mrs McGowan

Welcome to year 1's class page. Here you will find details of our daily routines and our curriculum.


Our Topic this half is 'This is Me!'

We will be learning about our bodies, our feelings, our families and where we live.

We will have the opportunity to look in detail at their senses, create a portrait in the style of Picasso and investigate where in the world we live. We will also look at the work of artist and architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser.

To find out more about our learning, please go to

Reading Books

Reading plays a vital role in developing your child’s education. Your child will be sent home with a reading book and reading record. Please try to read every night; every second counts! Please remind your children to put their finished books in the finished box, so we can change the books as frequently as possible.


Our PE sessions are on a Wednesday and Thursday, but we aim to get outside and active as much as possible throughout the week. Therefore, please ensure your child has a fully labelled kit in school all week, should any changes in the timetable occur. Earrings must be removed on PE days. If your child has recently had their ears pierced, they should come to school with their ears taped on PE days.


Homework in year 1 is a learning menu that will be sent home on Friday 10th September.

In the menu, there are lots of different homework activities to choose from. Children MUST complete the activities that are coloured grey and at least one 4-star activity. They can choose to do whatever you like each week, however by the end of the half term, they must have earned 20 stars. When  a homework task is completed, put a cross through the box and colour in the number of stars you achieved. If they manage to earn more than 20 stars over the half term, they will earn a sticker and certificate. Any work you would like to share with me can be photographed and emailed to me.

Getting in Touch

I am aware given the current situation that it is difficult to speak with you at the start or end of the day. If you have any questions/concerns/worries, please do not hesitate to email me on and I will reply as soon as possible.

Thank you again for all of your support. I am looking forward to an exciting year ahead.
