Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


Year One is an exciting and fascinating place to be!

The transition from Reception to Year 1 is a big step, however by working together, we aim to make this as easy and enjoyable as possible for all involved. We have a fantastic team; Mrs. Simms (Key Stage Phase Leader), Miss Ingle (Class Teacher), Mrs. Arrowsmith and Mrs. Clift (TAs). As this is an important stepping stone in your child’s education, please feel free to come and see us for a chat if you have any queries.

PE Days

PE days are on Tuesday (with Miss Sedgwick) and Friday (with your child's class teacher). PE kits should be in school at all times as these days are subject to change.

Homework Expectations

The children will be expected to read each night with an adult and their books will be changed twice a week. Please can you record when your child has read in their ‘Monkey Books’.

Spellings will be sent home every Friday ready for their test the following week.

What we've been up to...


Dino Day! 

On Tuesday 14th September, the children had a fantastic surprise. Not only did they become paleontologists for the day but they also got to meet some dinosaurs! We had a very exciting day learning lots of facts about different dinosaurs, discovering their fossils, learning about their diets and where they lived. How exciting to meet Mia, Bella and of course Sophie!
