Miss Copestick 

Hello Year 1 families! I hope everyone is well and ready to start the Summer term.

I have really enjoyed spending time with my family at home but have also missed you all. I’m pleased to be back in touch after the Easter break and really grateful that we can keep in contact with each other on seesaw, as well as using it to practise our skills.

I will continue to upload activities onto seesaw. Key skills that Year 1 children should try to practise often. This might be handwriting, phonics, sentence work, reading or maths.

If you’re having trouble with navigating a seesaw activity on your device, most seesaw activities can be adapted - to simply doing it on paper, taking a photo of it and uploading it to seesaw (or by printing off the student template if you have access to a printer).

Below, you will find the most recent fortnightly topic web – this includes home learning challenges and activities based upon the wider Year 1 curriculum. You can choose these activities at your leisure to keep you busy. You are not expected to do them all.

Any learning that you do over the coming weeks is super, learning comes in all shapes and sizes but I recommend that you do keep practising those key skills, keeping them up for our return to school.

Sending love to all our families

See you on Seesaw!

Miss Copestick

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.


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.
