RE: Following Jesus

Following Jesus.png

“From the beginning, Jesus associated his disciples with his own life, revealed the mystery of the Kingdom to them and gave them a share in his mission, joy and sufferings.”      Catechism of the Catholic Church

Year 1 will hear how Jesus chose some of the first disciples (Luke 3. 5: 1- 11) and reflect on how we choose our friends. They will hear how Martha and Mary were friends of Jesus and think about how we can be his friends.  They will listen to the story of Jesus and his followers going into Jerusalem and think of how we can praise Jesus. They will learn that Jesus died on Good Friday and know that God raised Jesus. 

At Home

You could help your children by:

  • Encouraging them to invite a friend to play


Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.

Please label ALL clothing and belongings.


Physical Education (PE)

Our P.E day is Wednesday, please ensure your child comes in to school on Wednesday wearing their P.E Kit. School uniform for P.E is a white t-shirt, black or navy-blue shorts and black pumps. As P.E lessons will largely be held outside to support social distancing, your child may require something warmer to wear as the weather becomes colder. This could include black or navy-blue jogging trousers, a sweatshirt and trainers. Please ensure that all items of kit are clearly labelled with your child’s name.  For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.



Homework will be sent home on a Friday to be completed by the following Thursday. The children will recieve spelling every week aswell as a piece of Grammar, Phonics or Maths homework. Homework will be sent out via google classroom and a hard copy will also be given. Please return your child's homework on Google Classroom by uploading a picture. 



The children will bring home a new reading book every time they bring back their old book in their book bag. .  Please listen to your child read out loud and record this in their diary. Discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of.



Children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 1 common exception words by the end of the year. 


Parent/Carer Curriculum Information

Throughout the year we will attach overviews with more information about what your child will be learning in each curriculum area during each term. We cover a variety of exciting topics throughout the year and may ask your child to bring in items from home to support these.
