Year 1 2020 - 2021

Miss Jones

Mrs Bailey



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 chlid will be learning in maths, phoincs reading and writing as well as links to some educational games to play at home. Our topic for this half term will be 'The World Around Me'. We will learn about animals and humans, our local area and explore cold areas of the world.  We will also explore the theme of 'Friendship' and 'Feelings' during this half term.

**Skipping Workshop: 24.9.20**

We are very lucky to have a skipping workshop planned for the children on Thursday 24th SeptemberChildren will need to come to school wearing their PE kits. This is in addition to our usual Wednesday PE session so the children will still need to wear their PE kits on the Wednesday. Please ensure your child wear appropriate footwear for physical activity, such as trainers or PE pumps. Loose fitting ballet pumps are not suitable for physical activity.

Hopefully you have been able to access the 'How to support your child in Year One' video. I hope that you found it useful and informative. Please find the accompanying slides from my presentation here



Reading Books 

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. 



PE will be on Wednesdays. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their PE kit. PE will be outside so children should dress accordingly. Joggers or leggings, zip up hoody and trainers can be worn. Hair must be tied back and all jewellery removed for PE lessons.
