Welcome to Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Our class teachers are Miss Clement and Mrs Leaney and we are supported in class by Miss Hollingsworth and Mrs Capstack. This half term our topic is ‘Paws, Claws and Whiskers’. Have a look at our ‘Class News’ page to see some of the things we have been up to.

This half term our P.E. day is Tuesday. Please make sure your child has both their indoor and outdoor P.E. kit in school all week. Remember earrings must be removed for P.E. lessons.

We will have our Forest School session on Fridays - please ensure your child has appropriate kit, including plenty of layers and wellies, in school on this day.


It's really important your child reads regularly at home. We have a weekly reading raffle where we celebrate the children's reading at home. Children who have read 5 times or more during the week will be entered into the reading raffle with the chance to win a prize! Please remember to record your child's reads in their reading diary.

Homework is set every FRIDAY and is due back the following THURSDAY.

We are working really hard in Phonics, practising lots of Phase 4 sounds. There are lots of games on Phonics Play to help you to practise at home.
