Year 1

Our teachers are Miss Mann, Miss Rahman and Miss Brown.

Mrs Hale and Mrs O'Regan work in each class too!



In Year One we try to organise our Reading Programme to make it as simple as possible for both parents and children. We follow on from the phonics and reading work that the reception teachers have put in place, to ensure progression and to make it an easy transition for us all!


Your child has been given a reading book and a Reading Record. We have chosen the books with the children and liaised with Reception staff to try and ensure your child has an appropriate book. Please comment in the Reading Record and let us know how your child got on so we can change books accordingly.


We will also be continuing to use the coloured word lists for reading and spelling. These are now included in the Reading Records and next week, when your child has read in school, we will be asking you to practice some of these words at home.

Please come and ask us if you have any questions about the way we organise reading in Year One.


Bug Club

This term we are launching our new online reading programme. Your child has been given their log-in details and we know lots of you have already accessed the eBooks. We aim to allocate at least 1 eBook for each child per week this term. We are sure this new way of reading will motivate the children to keep reading!



1B will have library session on a Wednesday.

1M/R will have library session on a Wednesday.


Homework and Spellings

Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned by Wednesday. A letter covering homework is included in the homework book.



Both classes have PE on a Wednesday morning with our resident Sports Coach Mr H.

Please ensure that all children have kits in school and plimsolls that fit.
