Ysgol Gynradd St John Lloyd RC Primary School

To be the best we can be, living to learn, learning to live with God at our side.


Year 1

Croeso I flwydden un!  Welcome to year 1!

Welcome back everyone!  We hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are all looking forward to some exciting times in year 1.

Our first topic this term is ‘Happiness’ we will be interviewing other children and staff in the school to find out what makes them happy.  Soon we will be having fun in the local park, playing games and telling jokes.  So try and think of a joke to make us all laugh.  We will be learning that being healthy is a big factor in being happy.  We will also be learning the names of the different parts of the body and find out how to look after ourselves through exercise and healthy living.

Our R.E. topic is families and we will be looking at love and care shown in the family and that everyone belongs to the family of God.  Please bring in a family photograph for our class display.



Maths homework will be given out on Fridays and will be linked to the work that you have been doing in class this week.  This needs to be returned by the following Friday.

New bug club books will be issued every Monday.  Please read them every day.



PE is on a Thursday.  Children will now need to bring a pair of trainers or outdoor daps for PE as we will be outside as much as possible in the coming terms while the weather is dry.  Please also ensure your child is prepared each week with navy blue or black shorts and a white top in a clearly labelled kit bag.
