RIDGEWAY Primary School

Year 1 

The Soyuz Crew!

We try our best in all we do!


Information about our class

Miss Peverelle will be teaching in class every day apart from Monday afternoons when Mrs Wilkinson will be teaching. This will be to cover Miss Peverelle's PPA time.  Mrs Geddes will support in class each morning apart from Thursdays.

PE will be on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Please make sure your child has PE kit in school. This includes a white T-shirt, black shorts, a black sweatshirt and black joggers, (a spare pair of socks is a good idea if your child wears tights to school). Please make sure all kit is clearly named.  Please send to school at the beginning of each half term and it will come home to be cleaned and checked (for fit) at the end of each half term.

Water bottles will be sent home at the end of the school day to be washed and refilled ready for the next day, hydration is really important and aids concentration and learning.

Please remember that children are only to bring the following items to school:

  • coats
  • water bottles
  • PE kit 

We are looking forward to a super year ahead. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Autumn 1 

Our new topic is called Super Me!

We will focus on several superhero texts including:

Supertato by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet

Eliot the Midnight Superhero by Anne Cottringer and Alex Smith 

We will also think about why we are super and what makes us special, plus real life superheroes. 

In Science we will study everyday materials, plus the human body and senses. 

In Design and Technology and Art we will design our own superhero outfit plus making our own skeleton. 

In Religious Education, Year 1 will learn about Christianity and religious symbols. 

In ICT we will focus on basic computing skills plus internet safety. 

We will have daily Reading, Phonics, English, Handwriting, Maths and Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) to support the children in their transition back to school. 


We are looking forwards to lots of fun and exciting learning!


Monday 21st September 2020

Homework will be set every Monday. The children will be given a full week to complete the learning, including a weekend.


Reading: 4 x 10 minutes per week - this will be set on Bug Club as we are unable to send home book bags at the current time. As well as reading the books on Bug Club, have a go at reading books from home to develop skills and a love of reading. 

Please click on the link below to log into Bug Club:


Phonics: Complete the activity assigned to to on Seesaw. 

Additional task: Maths! Go on a number hunt! What numbers can you find around your home and when you are out and about? Can you have a go at writing the number? Can you spell it? Can you make the number using objects at home e.g. pasta, Lego? If you wish, post some pictures of the numbers you find on Seesaw for me to see. 

Log in details for Seesaw and Bug Club (Active Learn) can be found in your Remote Learning Books. 


As always, your ongoing support with home learning is truly appreciated and plays a huge role in covering missed learning and embedding new learning - please do not hesitate to contact me with any queries.

Take a look at some of our learning! 

Year 1 have been absolute superstars over the last few weeks, and settled back into school fantastically. 

During the first week of school we learned about the Soyuz space craft and wrote about ourselves. Take a look at the pictures of the displays created by the children's wonderful work! 

To kick start our topic Super Me, we have had great fun reading the story Supertato. We have written some descriptions about the characters in the story including Supertato himself plus the Evil Pea! In art we have used power paints to paint pictures of the characters too. 

As well as this, we have been using the text The Colour Monster to think about our emotions and feelings. We have talked lots about how we feel and what makes us feel this way. Then we drew pictures of the things that make use feel certain emotions and put them into the different jars just like The Colour Monster does in his own story. 

Take a look at a sample of the learning we have been up to! 

In computing we have talked about Internet safety and discussed people who can help us if we have a worry.

We are learning to log in and out of Purple mash and today we found out how to save our work.
