Year 1H

General Information.

Welcome to Summer term 1 in class 1H


News: Don’t forget to read the weekly newsletters for regular school updates. 


This term in English we will be using two books to explore our learning. We are reading 'How to catch a star’ written by Oliver Jeffers and 'The Enormous Turnip' written by Katie Daynes. We will be learning to write instructions and continue to use our phonics knowledge to support our writing skills. In maths, we will learning about multiplication and division and, fractions. Children will also explore position and direction. 


We will also be learning about different individuals as part of our Great Explorers topic in History. We will learn about key individuals, such as Ibn Battuta, Christopher Columbus, Matthew Henson, Neil Armstrong and Felicity Ashton. In Science, we will continue our learning about seasonal changes as progress through the seasons. Children will also learn about plants which include labelling plants and learning about how they grow. Remember to water your sunflower seed and watch it grow. In Art, we are learning about the American artist Georgia O’Keeffe. Children will explore her work to create a final piece based on her paintings of natural materials and use of bold, vibrant colours. In computing, children are exploring algorithms (set of instructions) to follow directions and create their own maze using 2Go in Purple Mash. Our physical education lessons now take place every Monday and Friday. Our Monday lesson is outdoor based and children will use different skills as they part in net and wall games. Our indoor lesson every Friday will support children in developing various skills based on athletics. As part of our religious studies, we will be learning about Holidays and Holydays, exploring the differences in these. Later in the term, we will explore how Gods helps us to choose well as we carry out the topic called Being Sorry. 


Our beloved class bear, Bertie will be continuing his visits to children's homes every weekend so that they can show him all of the wonderful sights in our local area of Southport.























Medical Conditions

If your child has a medical condition that staff need to know about, please inform school as soon as possible. If your child requires an inhaler, or any other medicine, please make sure it has been returned to school, and is not out of date.



Two reading books will be sent home each Monday. Every week, an online reading book will be allocated on Active Learn.  Please send your children’s Reading Record book into school each day.



Children will be set spelling homework via Purple Mash. The children's login for this can be found in the front of their blue reading record. The spellings will be practised in class each Friday before they are set on Purple Mash. They will then be tested on these the following Friday. Please let me know if you have any issues accessing the website.


Jumpers, Cardigans and Water Bottles

Please remember to clearly label all jumpers and cardigans and ensure your child brings a water bottle to school each day.



Please remember that £6 is due at the beginning of every half term to pay for your child's snack. Children receive a fruit snack in the morning break and in the afternoon, we provide a variety of healthy snacks throughout the week and a treat on Friday.


If you have chosen not to participate in the snack scheme and wish to provide a snack instead please ensure that it is a healthy food choice such as fruit or a cereal bar. 



Please continue to read at least three times a week with your child at home. 



This Summer half term, P.E. sessions will take place each Monday and Friday.  Children should continue to come into school wearing their P.E. clothes with a school jumper or cardigan and appropriate footwear as one lesson will be delivered outdoors every week.

A golden egg has appeared at St Patrick's...but what is inside?

What does a knight wear? Thanks to our very own Sir Jack Abraham we could label the armour to discover what each part is called.

Geography - Our Local Area.


In Geography, we have been learning all about our local area. We have been on a walk around our local area and used our map skills to find local landmarks. We have also been talking to people who work in our school to learn more about their role and what they do to help us. The children though of some wonderful questions, asked them with confidence and listened wonderfully to the answers. A great big thank you to our fabulous volunteers - Michelle for accompanying us on our walk, Mr Bennet, Mrs Freer, Ms Harrop and Dottie for answering the children's questions about their jobs in school. We are always grateful for your support.
