Welcome to the Year 1 section of the website.

In Year 1 we have 30 children in our class, 18 boys and 12 girls. Our class Teacher is Mrs Arkwright and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Davies and Mrs Walsh. In Year 1, 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 concept is 'change'. Children will be taught this concept through the theme 'Toys'. Children's leaning will be based around the book 'Dogger'. In History we will look at our favourite toys, sorting old and new toys and the timeline of toys and playground games. We will also base our DT work around 'Toys'. Children will look at a variety of flip-flap books and design and make their own books, using a range of sliders and levers.

Things to remember…

  • Reading 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 Wednesday and Friday morning.  Children should have a full PE kit and this should be in school at all times. 

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

Many thanks,

Mrs Arkwright, Mrs Davies and Mrs Walsh.
