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. Clewley (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.



Welcome to Year 1



Our PE days take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Your child can come to school in their PE kit on these days. PE uniform must consist of a white t-shirt and royal blue shorts. During cold weather, children can wear dark-coloured jogging bottoms and a dark-coloured jacket. Earrings must not be worn for PE lessons and cannot be covered with plasters or micropore tape.



Homework will now be given on a half-termly basis, with a variety of tasks for children to complete. Your child will be given a pack with instructions and a return date at the beginning of each half term.



Weekly spellings will be given on a Friday and pupils will be tested on a Friday. This will relate to their phonics as well as high frequency and common exception words.  


Times Tables

Weekly times tables will be given on a Friday and pupils will be tested on a Friday

We expect all pupils to read daily at home. Please record and sign in your child’s reading diary when they have read.


You can contact your child’s class teacher throughout the year on 


Kind regards,


Mrs Simms and Miss Ingle


What we've been up to...



Year 1 had an exciting morning time travelling back to the 1950's. We went through a secret door and were transported into a 1950's living room! The children enjoyed listening to Mrs Clewley explaining all about what life was like back then, we also explored a range of items including an old phone, photographs, tea and coffee pots, a music box and much more!
