Welcome to Year 1


 We would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a happy new school year and welcome you to our class page. 

Year 1 brings lots of changes to your child's school day with more focus on academic work and a very different daily routine. I am so pleased at how well they have all adjusted so far and they have impressed me with their fantastic effort and wonderful ideas. This term we will be focusing on reading and phonics so would be grateful if you could read with your child each night. Each Thursday we will be sending a new book home to read from school and we will also be updating the books on Reading Planets. 

Our PE day is Thursday so please make sure that your child is in PE kit when they come to school.

Finally, we are really looking forward to working with you all this year.

Key Information

Regularly check Purple Mash for home learning tasks.




Reading should be completed each night. Books will be sent out on Thursday and must be returned to school by Tuesday ready for the 72 hour quarantine. 


All homework will be provided online. Please attempt the homework during the week with your child so if they don't understand they will have the opportunity to bring it back into school for help.
