Water Primary School


Class 1

Welcome to Class 1



Welcome to Class One. Miss Rush is the class teacher, supported by Mrs Davis and Miss Bulling as the class teaching assistants.

Our Summer 1 topic is 'Perfect Plants'


In English, we will look at a variety of pattened stories. 

There will be a variety of linked stories in the reading corner along with different tales for each week.

In maths, we will continue to focus on number skills. We will work on place value (tens and ones). We will learn skills to carry out  fractions. We will continue working with coins to solve problems. We will  also carry out lots of independent activities in our maths zone to further develop our skills.

PE this half term will be on Thursday. Please send your child to school every Thursday in their school PE kit (blue shorts and plain white t-shirt) with their school joggers and hoodie over the top. Your child should wear trainers to school and bring their pumps with them.

The children will carry out continuous provision challenges within the classroom to support and develop their knowledge and understanding on this subject. Some examples of this are;

  • Our 365 pobble writing challenge.
  • Our maths zone.
  • Our craft area will have a wide variety of paints and brushes.
  • Our reading zone with linked texts (fantasy stories).


This half term our PE lessons are on Thursday. Please ensure that your child comes to school in their full, correct PE kit (plain white t-shirt and blue shorts, joggers and hoody, trainers and pumps).

Class Dojo

Your child will continue collecting points throughout the week for displaying attributes set by the class. The children each have an 'avatar' of themselves. The person who collects the most points throughout the week will then be rewarded with a certificate at the end of the week. They will also bring home one of our class mascots, 'Spots' or 'Stompy'. Please send photographs through dojo and encourage your child to write about their fun times together.

Thank you for your continued support at home through homework and reading. Please continue to read with your child at home, developing a love of books, by reading stories to your child as well as listening to them read. Many thanks to everyone striving to listen to your child read every night. Little and often is great and we can see the effort put in when in class.  Thank you for your continued support at home through homework and reading.

Weekly spellings have been sent out and the quiz is every Friday.

Children will be given homework tasks. They will be given a homework folder with a bingo sheet and task cards inside. You should encourage your child to choose a topic and maths task. Two tasks should be completed every two weeks (one topic and one maths). Please return your homework on the dates given on your bingo card. Homework tasks can be found on the tab. If you need anything re-printing, please just ask.

Please feel free to ask if you are struggling with colours or pens and pencils at home.

As always, our door is always open to you!
