Welcome to Hylton Castle Primary School

Year 1 Class News

This half term the children have loved reading ‘Aliens Love Underpants.’ We have had lots of fun retelling the story and acting it out. Our writing has been fantastic, and we have worked so hard to retell the story.

In Maths we are working extremely hard with our numbers to 20 and completing addition and subtraction calculations. We have loved learning about teens numbers and recognising them as tens and ones. We have also been learning our odd and even numbers. If you could help the children practice at home it would be great! 😊

In Science we have loved learning about different classification of animals. We have presented all our work and findings to our friends, and we know so many interesting facts.


Please remember to read with your child every night. Giving the children the opportunity to practice their skills at home makes such a difference. We would also love it if you could download the ‘White Rose Hub 1 Minute Maths App’ this allows the children to practice lots of Maths skills we do in our daily number fluency sessions.
