Year 1 2020 - 2021
In Year 1 we want our classroom to be a safe, fun and an encouraging learning environment. Leaving Reception behind and moving into Year 1 can feel like a big step for both children and their parents. The Year One team are here to make this transition easier and smoother for everyone by supporting the children (and their parents!) in their next learning step.
This page and our gallery is updated regularly so please keep checking for updates. Please use the above tabs to find out what your child will be learning in maths, phonics reading and writing as well as links to some educational games to play at home. Our topic for this half term will be 'Toys'. We will be learning about plants in science. In topic, we will be learning about the history of toys.
Contacting Class Teachers
The Year 1 class teachers are Miss Jones (Monday - Thursday) and Mrs Bailey (Friday).

Year 1 Timetable
Here is our timetable for Year 1.
Please could we remind parents and carers that snack money needs to be handed in on Mondays in a paper envelope (no plastic please), clearly marked with your child's name, snack choice and the days required. We are unable to handle loose change at the moment.
Reading books will be collected on a Friday and changed on the following Monday to allow for quarantine over the weekend. A new book will be sent home if it has been read at home at least 3 times. Re-reading texts will really support children's fluency, accuracy and confidence so reading everyday would be even better! Even five minutes a day makes a huge difference.
PE will be on MONDAYS with Mr Reddy and his sports coaches, Andy and Pat and on FRIDAYS with Mr Bell, our gymnastics coach. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their PE kit. Hair must be tied back and all jewellery removed for PE lessons.
