Welcome to Year 1

This has been an exciting year in your child's education so far. Your child has made the leap from Reception and settled into Year 1 with ease.

 

We have one more term together and we are going to explore a variety of topics. Our learning will consist of plants, the Titanic and health and wellbeing. We will also be working on consolidating our math skills, in preparation for Year 2.  In reading, pupils have been working hard to segment and blend phase 5 words. They are due to take their phonics screening at the beginning of June, so lots of reading at home will support this. 

 

It has been a year full of amazing achievements so far and we look forward to our final term together. 

Meet the Teacher

This year, our 'Meet the Teacher' session will take place Thursday 16th September at 3:30pm via Teams. More details to follow.

Weekly Timetables

Curriculum Information

Phonics and Reading

Phonics Play is used in school and the children really enjoy playing the games. This is a phone and tablet friendly website.

Oxford Owls have a wide selection of reading books that you can access at home. Many of those books are the same as the ones we have at school. You can filter the selection of books to include 'phonics' books to support the learning of phonics. The website also provides a guide to phonics which includes a video demonstrating how to pronounce single letter phonemes (sounds) and interactive maths games too.
