Welcome back!

We are already in full swing here in year one and the children have amazed me! They look so grown up and smart in their fresh uniforms and are settling in well to their new year one classroom and routine.

I look forward to helping year one children grow and learn, as well as getting to know new families in an exciting year ahead.

Children will need sun-cream and a sun hat during hot weather and a warm coat in the winter.

All children should bring a water bottle to school.

Pre-order your school dinners.

PE kit should be kept in school.

Forest Schools will take place weekly on a Friday afternoon, and children will need suitable clothing for this.


We are here for you - if you have any worries or questions about anything - come to see us, call, or drop us an email. Similarly, if you are happy, do this too as it's always nice to know! :)


Year one take part in daily phonics which aim to recover previously learned letter to sound correspondences as well as teach new and alternative spellings. Usually following the format of 'revisit and review - learn something new - practise - apply' Children access snappy and engaging activities to support them in their reading and spelling.

As the statutory Phonics Screening Check takes place in Year 1 (summer term) we prepare by revising sounds learned in Reception and also learn new Y1 sounds and spellings.

You can prepare for the phonics screening check at home by following this link 

Homework will also be sent home in the children's book bags to support phonics and you can also access many phonics games and apps on the internet.

You may be interested to know that above, I have saved a document (HFW checklist) indicating all of the sight words that children should be able to read as they move from reception through to Y2.
