Year 1

Co-operation and Caring

In Year 1 we want to help the children transition to a more formal way of teaching.

In Reception the children were starting to transition to this by doing Read Write Inc. which we continue in Year 1. We encourage our children to reach their full potential, providing a stimulating and interactive classroom environment and supporting them to this changed learning environment.

We aim to build strong home school partnerships and often invite parents into the classroom to see how their children are progressing and to take home ideas that can be used to help children learn.

During this year your child will be taught by class teachers:

  • Miss Parsons
  • Mrs Masud
  • Miss Jones
  • Mrs Crutchley

Supported by teaching assistants:

  • Mrs Palmer
  • Mrs Patel
  • Mrs Machin (HLTA)

We set spelling every week which are words that we encourage children to use in their writing at school. We encourage you to help them practice their spellings for the following week.

This year, some of our classes have two different PE days (see below). We encourage you to leave your child’s PE kit at school for the whole half term so that they can do PE every week:

  • 1P - Monday and Thursday afternoons
  • 1J - Monday afternoon and Friday morning
  • 1M – Tuesday afternoon
