About 1BG

RE: Mary, the Mother of God


The children will learn that God sent the Angel Gabriel with a message to Mary and learn why this is important. They will learn that God asked Mary to be the mother of his son and will have an opportunity to reflect on her response. 

They will hear about Mary's visit to her cousin, Elizabeth and reflect on the the good news. They will begin to reflect on how we can prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus and learn that Mary is our mother in heaven and that she is looking after us. 

At home

You could help your children by:

*reinforcing why Mary is important for Christians

*discussing the importance of mothers


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 Friday, 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.
