Denby Dale First & Nursery School

Year 1

Autumn 1 Theme "What makes me unique?"

We've had a great start to Year 1. The children are doing really well coping with all the new changes as well as moving year groups.

Each week you will be able to see what we have been getting up to on our class page.

There is a section below called 'Blended Learning'. If your child is isolating you will find the work for each week there. This is so that your child does not miss what they should be covering in class. 



Cursive Handwriting

If you want to practise writing letters ready for joining then this video is helpful. We have covered most of the joins in class. (Not all children are ready for this yet, but they can practise with their finger or a paint brush in the air or on someone's back).

Literacy - writing labels

Science - what do we know about our bodies?

Blended Learning

Here you will find all the learning covered in class each week if your child is having to isolate at home.

There will also be some form of daily contact from either Mrs Thomson or Miss Biggs.


We spent time assessing Maths and looking at gaps in the first week back.

We have now started Week 1 using White Rose Maths. Please use the link below to watch the teaching slides for, one lesson each day.


PE Days - every Tuesday and Friday. Please send your child to school in their PE kits on these days. Please send their uniform in the bag to change back into after their PE session.

'Daily Run - due to PE kits being kept at home for now, either send trainers with your child every day or they can just run in their shoes. 


Reading Books - information to follow.

Spelling - information to follow.

Homework - information to follow.
