Year 1: Donaldson Class

Welcome to Year One


Staff: Mrs Bazley, Mrs Weatherall and Ms McDougall


Hello Year One and welcome to our class page. This half term we are going to be learning lots of exciting things.



We will be learning to add and subtract numbers to twenty before we move on to learning about numbers to fifty.



We have started our new vehicle text, Paper Planes by Jim Helmore and Richard Jones. In writing, we will be using our vehicle text to inspire us to write our own friendship narratives and recount messages. In reading, we will be working hard to improve our fluency and expression as well as answering questions about what we have read.



We will be learning all about plants and trees. Including looking at parts of a plant and learning to name different plants and trees.


Mrs Bazley



I am available to talk to parents/carers briefly in the morning or after school. However, if a longer discussion is needed then a meeting can be arranged at a mutually convenient time.
