Key Stage 1 2021 - 2022

Miss Pimblott

Welcome to KS1

Summer Term

Our class is made up of 31 wonderful Y1 and Y2 children. Our teacher is Miss Pimblott and we are helped by Mrs Stoker, Mrs Mckie and Miss Sumner too. Mrs Phillips will also be taking us for learning outside the classroom.

We are always busy bees in KS1 and we love learning about new topics through listening, exploring and playing. Keep a look out on our Class Dojo and the school Facebook page for updates about our learning.


Our topic this half-term is 'Our Local Area'. During this topic, we will be looking at maps and exploring Mow Cop. Our class author is Roald Dahl, we are looking forward to learning more about him and the books his has written.


Homework : Homework will be set on a Friday and will consist of reading, writing, maths or SPaG activities. This is due back in school the following Wednesday. 


P.E Kit : Our P.E. lessons this term will be on a Thursdayy and Friday. Please can you come into school in your P.E. kit.

Helping your child at home

Reading: Continue to read regularly at home with your child, everyday if you can and aim for a minimum of 4 times per week. Reading books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. 

Maths: Practise counting anywhere that you can. By the end of Y1, children need to be able to count (in ones) to a hundred. In Y2 practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, as this will prepare your child when they come to learn their times tables.

Handwriting:  In Y1 the children will be introduced to precursive, this is the first step towards writing your letters joined up. In Y2 the children will start to learn how to do continuous cursive. At home encourage lots of opportunities to write; shopping lists, cooking and baking, writing instructions.


If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me on: or via Class Dojo
and I will get back in touch with you as soon as possible.
