Respect - Collaborate - Grow

Class One

Welcome to Year 1!


In Year 1 we are lucky to have the expertise and enthusiasm of two teachers – Mrs Robson on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs Lee on Thursdays and Fridays.  We are assisted by Mrs Birch every day except Fridays and Mrs D works 1-1 to support learning.


We would be grateful if parents could assist us at home by reading with your child every day and recording their reading in their reading record book.  Children will be responsible for changing their own reading books when necessary.  We will support them with this and will be regularly checking reading records.  Please make sure your child’s reading book and reading record are in school every day so we can also hear them read.


Home learning, including spellings, will come home on a Friday and can be returned to school any time from the Monday if completed, but must be in school by Wednesday.


P.E. is on a Wednesday and Thursday; please make sure your child has a full PE kit in school.  We encourage you to leave your child’s kit in school all term; we will send it home at the end of term or earlier if it requires washing.


Please also ensure that your child has a named water bottle in school and that it only contains water.  They will also need a lunchtime drink, this could be water, squash or juice (no fizzy drinks please).


We look forward to our exciting learning journey together in Year One.
