Welcome Year One September 2021...

Hello and welcome to our new Year 1 families! 

It's been just fabulous to see the children all together in their school uniforms and looking so grown up! We have enjoyed re-connecting with our friends and are now able to choose where we play at break-times whether it's the playground or school field, as well as enjoying having lunch together with other classes in the school hall.

In class we have talked about our Y1 class values that we agreed last summer and we have been 'getting busy', using the learning areas around the classroom.

I'm so pleased to tell you that ALL children have been just superb, and i'm so impressed with their efforts in their brand new class!



Bring a drinking bottle and your book bag to school with your snack in.

More information on home reading will come soon. Reading books will be changed once a week.

We will use our great outdoors when we can, so we advise to have a pair of wellies and an all in one rain suit to put on so we're prepared for all weathers. This can be kept in a bag on your peg in school.

Come to school wearing your PE kit on Thursdays.

It is advisable to have at least 2 lots of snack - one for morning and one for afternoon play.

Snack from the kitchen will also be available to purchase at morning play.

I will open the classroom door at 8.50am so you can come into the classroom as you arrive. The register will be taken at 9am. 

School finishes at 3.30pm. Collection from KS1 playground. 


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

Please pre-order your child's school dinners on ParentPay.

When working with your child at home, support your child in part, give instructions, hints and pointers, but ensure your child's work is not solely a copying exercise as 'developing independence' is the name of the game.


Most importantly, we are here our families - if you have any worries or questions about anything or have any suggestions, call or drop us an email. Similarly, if you are chuffed with something, please let us know too as it's always nice to know! :)

More information can be found on the Meet the teacher PPT.

Thank you always for your continued support.

See you tomorrow for another day of learning!

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 

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