Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Year 1 is made up of two classes. Class 3 is taught by Miss Broughton and Class 4 is taught by Mrs Atamaniuk, Mrs Rowe and Miss King, who will be joining Milford as a Teach First student.

All Year 1 children will have the opportunity to reach their full potential and be the best they can be. Year 1 children will show the Milford Values: Motivation, Independence, Learning, Forward Thinking, Outstanding, Respect and Determination.

PE is on Wednesday. Please make sure your child’s PE kit includes:

  • Plain white PE top
  • Plain blue/black jogging bottoms
  • Plain blue/black shorts
  • Spare socks
  • Trainers/plimsolls (these need to be different from what they wear in the day)
  • Plain blue/black sweatshirt/hoodie
  • Tape/plasters for earrings

Please name everything. It is very hard for us to return/find lost PE kit that is not named.

Spring B


In English this half term we have been looking at the adventures of Oliver through ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’ and ‘Oliver’s Fruit Salad’.

We enjoyed making a fruit salad and getting to try it. We wrote instructions on how to make a healthy fruit salad.

We are trying very hard to improve our sentences by using and.

Our main focus in handwriting has been the curly caterpillar letter family – a, c, g, d, o, e, s, f, q.


In Maths this half term we have been learning all about measurement. We have been comparing, describing and solving practical problems for length, heights, mass and weight.

We have been working hard on using the correct vocabulary.

We are continuing to count in 2s, 5s and 10s.


In Science we have been learning about the main parts of a plant – flower, stem, leaves and roots and identifying different types of wild and garden plants.


We have been enjoying our geography topic on ‘Or Local Area’. We have been learning the difference between human and physical geography.

We have used google earth to look at where we live!

Healthy Lifestyles

We enjoyed our visit from our chef Idris as part of our Healthy Lifestyles Project. We sampled lots of different fruit and vegetables (including mango, fennel, tender stem broccoli and pomegranate!)

We learnt about where different fruits are from in the world.


We are very lucky this half term to be working with Mrs Baker to develop our art skills. We have enjoyed making clay models of things we find in nature and we used materials found around school to make sculptures.
