Hello, I'm Mrs. Lindblad and I am the Year 1 teacher this year. I am thrilled to be working back in the Annexe and I have lots of exciting things planned for the children in my class. I will regularly update this page to keep you informed of what we are up to and I hope that you find it informative. If you have any questions then please come and see me either before or after school at the gate or drop an email to Mrs. Revel at and she will forward it to me.

Welcome  to the Autumn Term of Year 1. I hope that you enjoyed the Summer Holidays and are looking forward to starting a new school year at Alsager Highfields. We will spend this half term working on the story topic 'The Jolly Postman'. 

I will provide you with a weekly learning journey below to let you know what we will be covering over the coming week so that you will be able to support your child where possible and talk to them about what they have been learning in class.



Our School Day

The school day will start at 8.50am and finish at 3.05pm. Please try to be punctual as this will ease congestion on the path outside school. Thank you for your help with this. 


Our learning this term

We have lots of exciting things planned this year and I hope that your child will come home each day feeling excited about their day. Both the yearly and termly curriculum planners can be found in the files section of the web page below.

We will being focussing in particular on learning about what a sentence is and how to write them. We will also be starting to use cursive writing  and will be making sure that we know all the capital letters and how to write them.

Our story topic is the Jolly Postman and traditional Tales. If you could read stories like 'Goldilocks and the 3 Bears', 'Little Read Riding Hood' and 'Jack and the Beanstalk' at home, it will really help your child with their writing activities this term as the more they know and remember a story, the easier it is for them to write sentences about it.

In maths this term we will be consolidating what we know about numbers to 10 in addition to becoming confident to manipulate these numbers and complete different calculations and problems using these numbers.

This year we are going to be having two P.E. lessons a week. This term they will both be taken by Miss Hook on a Tuesday and a Friday afternoon. We would like the children to come dressed for P.E. on these 2 days so that we won't have to worry about getting changed. Please be aware that most lessons will take place outside so we would appreciate it if the children could be wearing a school track suit over their shorts and T shirt so that we are prepared for all weather.



Children can bring their own fruit to school if they wish but we will provide daily fruit of vegetables to every child in year 1. We appreciate your support with our fruit only snack policy in the Annexe.


Water Bottles:

Please make sure that your child comes to school with a named water bottle that contains water only. We encourage children to drink water regularly.



  • Read every night
  • Learn spellings for a test each Friday
  • English Sheet (weekly)
  • Maths Sheet (weekly)




Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning.  Please also write a short comment when you have listened to you child read as we now expect every child to read at least 4 times a week minimum.



We will be sending 10 spellings a week home for the children to learn.  This weeks spellings are:
