Belle Vue Primary School

Year 1

smiley Welcome to the Year 1 page smiley

Please find below general information for your child in Year 1. 




PE days for both classes are on a Monday and Friday, please provide your child with both a dry and wet weather PE kit, due to us using both our outdoor and indoor spaces throughout the year.

Please note that during Spring term the children will be taking part in Forest Schools on a Monday afternoon with Mrs. Devlin. Therefore, they need to have suitable outdoor clothing and shoes left in school, as well as their school PE kits. Thank you 🌳 




Reading - The children are expected to read at least three times a week. They take home one levelled reading book every week, which are changed every Monday (please note this can't always be achieved on this day, due to timetable changes). The children also receive a QR code for the Ready Steady Phonics text from the previous  week and a Non-fiction text, alternate weeks.


Maths - The children need to access Numbots three times a week for 10 minutes at a time (as a minimum) and may need to complete one paper piece of homework each week when appropriate. This can be found either in their book bags on a Friday (due for the following Friday) or on Numbots. Numbots log ins can be found on the inside sleeve of your child's reading record.


Spelling - The children will be given a new spellings list to practise every Monday. They will be taught a new sound and then they will practise words (including these sounds) and a selection of our Year 1 words, at home which will be tested in school every Friday. 

If you have any questions, please send us an email via: 

Thank you,

Autumn Term 🍂

The Teddy Robber - By Ian Beck


The Teddy Robber visited Year 1 on Thursday night and took our teddies! We found lots of clues in the classrooms and around the playground to help us work out what had happened!! We sent a letter back to the Giant asking if he could bring our teddies back! 🐻 

Tullie House Visit 


1JA Tullie House Toys School Trip. The children loved listening about old toys from history, playing with moving toys, outdoor toys, making their own peg dolls and drawing observational pictures of old toys. They blew us all away with their retention of knowledge so far of our topic and shared fantastic language/vocabulary with the Tullie House staff too 🤩🤩

Christmas Performance 🎄 🎅 


We were so proud of all of the children's effort and enthusiasm both during and leading up to our Year 1 Christmas Carol performance. We hope you enjoyed the show.

Lost In The Toy Museum - By David Lucas 📚 ✏ 


After reading and orally retelling the story, the children rewrote the text in their own words with a strong focus on capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and time connectives. 

The children really wowed us with their work- I think we have 60 authors and illustrators in the making!

Well done to Alanna and Freddie in 1JA for receiving a head teachers award sticker for their stories from Mr. Cairns 🤩

Visit from Santa 🎅 🎄 


The children really enjoyed their suprise visit from Santa (Rotary Club) and his sleigh. They sung songs and danced away so merrily!

Spring Term 🌸 

Library Bus Visit 🚌 📚 


The children enjoyed a visit from the library bus where they listened to a story and swapped the class books with new ones of their choice. The children then enjoyed reading/looking at these when they returned to class.  


World book day/Belle Vue book swap 📚 


All of the children enjoyed lots of reading themed activities during world book day. This included; the masked reader, library visit for a bedtime story and hot chocolate, buying a book at our book shop and many more! One of the main highlights was Y3 coming to show us their volcano books.

The children also enjoyed bringing in old books from home to swap with others in school. The children loved choosing a ‘new’ book and sharing these together in class 😊
