Our Learning

See what we are learning about this term by reading our termly newsletter.


Outdoor PE: both Year 1 classes have outdoor PE on Tuesdays.

Indoor PE: both Year 1 classes will have indoor PE on Mondays for the first half of the term.  For the second half of the term both classes will have indoor PE on Fridays with a specialist dance coach.

Your child will need navy shorts, a white, round neck t-shirt and trainers or plimsolls. Plain navy tracksuit bottoms are required for outdoor PE. Shorts must be plain and above the knee (no buckles or zips). No items of denim or vests are allowed.

We recommend PE kits are brought in to school and kept in school for the half term.

Home Learning

Thank you for your support with the children’s home learning so far, it really makes a difference!

There are lots of different ways you could support your child in their learning at home.  Here are just a few ways;

Reading: please continue to support your child to read daily and keep a record of their reading journal. The reading journals are checked weekly. Children should complete 1 journal activity each week, this will be collected in for marking on their allocated day.

Writing: letter and numeral formation activities will be sent home each week.

Maths: maths homework will be set on a weekly basis via Mathletics. Children can log onto Mathletics here.

Encourage your child to have a go at the Maths challenge that is published in the Eliot Bank weekly and here.
