Year 1

Perseverance and Caring

Welcome to Year 1 at Blakesley Hall Primary School.

In Year 1 we aim to provide children with a safe and happy environment where they are encouraged to do their best and enjoy school.

In Year 1 we support the children to transition from Early Years to the Year 1 curriculum by providing them with an interactive and exciting environment, the teaching in Year 1 begins with focus groups and continuous provision in the classroom. This will gradually change and the children transition into a more formal style of Year 1 learning when they are ready for this next step. We have a fantastic curriculum, and we dive into some wonderful stories and topics such as Arctic Explorers, Toys from the past, The Queen and Pirates!

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

  • Miss Virdee – 1V – Year 1 Leader
  • Mrs Masud – 1M – RE Leader
  • Mr Cross – 1C

Supported by teaching assistants:

  • Mrs Ali – 1V
  • Miss Walker – 1M
  • Mrs Hannah – 1C

PE: Children will need to bring their PE kits to school weekly and get changed in school. Please provide them with a water bottle daily.

  • 1V – Wednesday and Thursday PM
  • 1A – Thursday and Friday PM
  • 1M – Wednesday and Friday PM
