Welcome to the Year 1 section of the website.

In Year One, we have 26 children in our class, 13 boys and 13 girls. Our class Teacher is Mrs Arkwright and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Hatton, Mrs Walmsley and Mrs Walsh. In Year One, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum that develops their independence, creative skills and inquisitive minds. The children explore this through a variety of exciting topic themed learning. We offer children a wide variety of multi-sensory activities that cater for individual learning styles. We build on the skills that children have established during the early years and extend their leaning so that they can move confidently on to their next stage of their learning journey.


This term our theme is 'Animals'. Children's leaning will be based around 'The tiger that came to tea'. In Science we will look at different types of animals and start to classify these, sort wild/domestic animals and identify what animals need in order to survive.  We will also base our art and DT work around animals, especially tigers. Children will create a variety of art work including, shaving foam tiger stripes, animal prints, tiger collage and animal masks etc. 

Things to remember…

  • Reading practice at home is essential to help your child make steady progress. They will bring their reading books home every day and books should be returned the following day. Reading books will be changed on a Monday and a Friday.
  • On Friday, children will bring home spelling homework. Please take the time to practise these spellings at home with your child as they will be tested the following Friday. 
  • PE will be on a Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning.  Children should have a full PE kit and should be in school at all times. During the colder months, children should have an outdoor PE kit.
  • Interactive homework starts this term, please complete the activities with your child. 

Thank you for your on-going support. Please call in to see us if you need to discuss anything.

Many thanks,

Mrs Arkwright, Mrs Hatton, Mrs Walmsley and Mrs Walsh.
