Phonics Screening

The week commencing 10th June 2024 children in Year 1 will sit the Phonics Screening Check.  Thank you to all the families who attended our workshops.



Little Red Riding Hood loves to visit her Granny’s cottage in the forest. Her mother warns her to go straight to Granny’s, but when she meets a charming, grey wolf, she doesn’t see the harm in stopping for a chat.

This term we will be exploring the tale of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ by Lari Don. The story provides plenty of mystery and opens a world of imagination for our children. The story will lead us on some cross-curricular adventures through the conservation area and through to the kitchen where we will be making some treats for Red to take to Granny. We will be continuing to encourage the children to include capital letters, full stops, correct letter formation and finger spaces in their writing. We will also be supporting the children to independently develop their writing by continuing to include key features such as onomatopoeia, similes, metaphors, alliteration, adjectives, conjunctions and different sentence types.



We will continue to encourage the children to immerse themselves in reading good quality texts for pleasure. This term, we will again be asking the children to read five times per week to an adult at home. We would be grateful if you could discuss the text and illustrations with your child to develop their comprehension of the books. Children will continue bringing home 4 reading books comprising of books from the school Bug Club scheme and books linked to the phonics sessions taught within school. Books will be changed on a Wednesday. If five reads are recorded on Boom Reader each week, your child will be awarded house points and a raffle ticket which goes towards the end of term reading raffle. If you need any support with using BoomReader please email your child’s class teacher.



This term we will be continuing to develop our understanding of Place Value and Addition and Subtraction within 50. We will also be learning about different measures (including length, height, mass and volume) and using appropriate units to measure these.


This term we will be identifying garden plants and wild flowers.  We will be focusing on the different parts of a flower and their functions.

P.E., Swimming and Forest School

We are very fortunate to have access to a swimming pool at Trinity, and in Year 1 we feel that it is very important that children take advantage of this resource. It is very important, therefore, that the children remember to bring their swimming kits to every session. All children must have an appropriate swimming kit and swimming hat. If, for any reason, your child is unable to take part in P.E. or swimming, a signed letter must be provided.


P.E kits are required to be worn to school on the day of your child’s P.E. lesson. The school P.E. kit consists of plain black shorts or joggers, a black sweatshirt or hoody and white t-shirt (with or without the school logo) and trainers. Please ensure that if your child wears earrings to school, these are either removed by the child themselves or taped up with tape provided from home.  Long hair must be tied up on P.E days.


P.E. will take place on a Wednesday for 1M and 1B so they will need to come to school wearing their P.E kits. 1H will swim on a Wednesday so they will need to come in school uniform on this day and bring their swimming kit each week. 


On a Thursday, 1H and 1B will have a P.E. lesson and will need to wear their P.E. kits to school. 1M will begin their Forest School sessions. On these days they will need to wear forest school kit and bring a spare set of clothes and wellies in a named bag.
