The Mayflower Primary School


Welcome to Year 1

We hope you had a relaxing summer and are looking forward to the year ahead as much as we are.



Our P.E. days are:


Tuesday and Wednesday.

Wednesday will be outdoor PE and we will be doing Tiny Rugby during the first half term. On Tuesday, PE will be indoors and will be dance.


Please ensure that your child has the correct labelled kit, hair is tied back and earrings removed for these days.




In science this term, we will be learning all about animals, including humans. This will include learning about the human body and the senses as well as mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians. We will also learn about a variety of common carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. 


In history, we will be learning about old and new toys whilst our geography work will be about our local area of Harwich and Dovercourt. 




Don't forget to read at least 5 times a week in order to earn Karate Reading Bands. As soon as you earn your first band, you will be entered into the reading raffle! As well as listening to your child read, please take the time to read to them as well.
