Denby Dale First & Nursery School

 Welcome to Year 1

2021 - 2022

Autumn 1 Theme 'What makes me unique?'


"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go!"

Dr Seuss


Lists, Labels and Captions - can you find examples of these around your home? Maybe you could help your parents write a shopping list?


Our Key Text (Reading): Amazing Grace




Story Time

Why not listen to a story?

Our Foundation Curriculum

Year One is the beginning of our 'National Curriculum' journey. Here is what we are learning this half term.

Geography - Our School Grounds

We went looking for the different features of our school grounds. We have a pond!

Design and Technology - Food

We learnt about where apples come from. Did you know we have an apple tree in our school grounds? We did apple tasting and had a vote. Pink Lady was the winner!





E-safety and keeping safe online.




PE Days 

Tuesday and Friday. Please send your child to school in their PE kits on these days. Please send their uniform in their bag to change back into after their PE lesson if needed.

Daily Mile

Due to PE kits being kept at home for now, either send trainers with your child every day or they can just run in their shoes. 


Reading Books 

We are now sending two books home with your child every week. We change them every Friday.

Please continue to share other books at home or online with your child. You can leave a comment in their green book anytime about what you have been reading. It doesn't have to just be their school books.


We will test spellings each week on a Friday. New spellings will then come home to practise for the next week. Please don't feel they have to be all done straight away or at the weekend. They can be done gradually over the week.


Homework will be set every Friday on Microsoft Teams. You are not expected to print off all the work-it can just be used as a reference.

There will be a reading task, a maths task and spelling words. Sometimes there may be an activity linked into the Foundation Curriculum, for example, Geography or Science.

Homework Book

Every child will have a homework book sent home. All work should be completed weekly in their book.
