Key Stage 1 Infants Miss Fisher

I would like to start by saying a very warm welcome to all of the children and their parents! This year is already looking to be a very exciting (and busy) one. throughout year, we will be: making a difference in the world, becoming masters of our learning, digging deeper into the mysteries of the world around us and discovering more about ourselves and those around us! It is an exciting time and it is our aim to ensure that the children will be working hard and challenging themselves to become excellent, enthusiastic and independent learners. It is crammed with opportunities for the children to create and explore!




Useful Information

  • Every week we will send out a class newsletter which will let you know what we have been up to that week. It will also detail any homework which we would like the children to complete.

  • Reading will take place every day ensuring that each childs reading is heard at least once a week. Please be understanding that we cannot change books daily as this will interrupt our very busy learning timetable. Phonics takes place every day ensuring reading, writing and spelling skills are being taught, practised and applied.


    How you can help:

  • Correct school PE kits will be needed every day. Kits should be appropriate for the season i.e. both outdoor and indoor kits are needed for the winter months. PE will take place on Tuesdays and Fridays.

  • Children receive weekly homework which is collected on a Friday.

  • Read with your child every day, and ask them questions about the text. Please record in their diaries the pages they have read and initial this to enable good communication between home and school. This recording is seen as evidence that they have read every day and is treated as homework.


    At St Peter’s we follow the school’s personalised ‘Active Curriculum’, which weaves both the new National Curriculum strands with Key skills that each year group is expected to be taught across all areas of the curriculum. This year Key Stage One will all follow the same topics.
