In Year One we have PE on a Wednesday morning. Please ensure children have a PE kit with both suitable indoor and outdoor kit. E.g. tracksuit and trainers. 




In Year One children are expected to read three times per week and books are changed Monday and Thursday. 

Children will also be given phonics homework frequently. 

Throughout the year children will also receive  homework related to topic which will be more 'project' based. 



Here at Holy Family we pride ourselves on our smart appearances. Please ensure children come to school dressed appropriately and wearing correct school uniform. 


Current Topic: 

Our current topic is Moon Zoom! We are really enjoying exploring and discussing if there really is life beyond Earth!  We are also going on a school trip to Eureka! which will link beautifully with our topic. 


Home Learning: 



Please find below a link to the first 200 common exception words for Y1 and Y2. In order for Y1 children to achieve their age related expectations they should be able to read and spell the first 100 common exception words. 

Thank you for your continued support.  


Please also find a link to Y1 numeracy and literacy curriculum statements. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and ask. 



Thank you
