Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

Year 1 will be taught this year by Miss Bell and supported by Mrs Kerr and Mrs Howes. We will also have Mrs Ibbotson and Senora Stansfield working with us too.

In order to help Year 1 children transition from Reception to Year 1, there will be a mix of continuous provision as well as focused tasks, led by an adult. Children will be encouraged to develop their independence throughout the year so they are prepared for more formal learning methods as they progress.

In their Reading Journey Y1 Children will have daily phonics sessions to prepare them for the National Phonics Screening test in the summer. You can read more about this screening by clicking here.

Subjects will be taught in a variety of different ways to support the needs of every learner. We will be working hard to encourage engagement and motivation from every child and are dedicated to support our children to instil lifelong love of learning.


PE will be on Tuesday mornings and Friday afternoons this year. It is very important that you have PE kit in school every day.

Please ensure you have a white T shirt, black shorts/track suits and trainers in school.

Earrings are not allowed to be worn during PE sessions. Please remove earrings or bring tape from home to cover them.

Home Learning

Home Learning will be sent home on a Friday. Please make sure it is returned by the following Thursday.

Children will read with an adult at school twice a week. Their reading days will be Mondays and Wednesday or Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is when their books will be changed.

Please continue to practise your letter sounds and tricky words as well as key number facts as they come home.
