Welcome to Year 1

We would like to warmly welcome your child to Year One.

The Year 1 Team

1C - Miss Choudhury and Mrs Denyer

1H - Mrs Hogan and Mrs Kinchin

1V - Miss Voda and Mrs Young

We are sure your children will have a wonderful and exciting time in Year 1.

The school day will begin with daily phonics and reading so please ensure that your child arrives promptly before 8.45 a.m.

If you need to speak to any of the teachers please feel free to see any of us, but if possible please can you make an appointment after school as the mornings are extremely busy.

Year 1 Curriculum


Spellings will be sent home on a Friday for a test on Monday, the test will be very informal.  

The children will also be having a times table test on Monday beginning with the 2x table.

The children have all been given homework books.  The homework is to be completed as and when you have time, but please hand-in the book on a Thursday and then it can be marked and returned to you the following Monday.

In Year One the only compulsory homework is to read and learn the spellings and times tables.

Year 1 Targets

These are the English and Maths targets that the children will be learning this year. Children will be assessed throughout the year against these targets.

Year 1H

In 1H we have been working hard on our phonics and undertaking the phonics screening check this week.     All the children have tried their best and I am so proud of them all – results will be sent out with the reports!

Luckily we had time on Wednesday afternoon for some fun in the forest school and we hunted for bugs and made some environmental art.

Rainbow Day

In 1H we celebrated Rainbow Day on Friday 9th February. 

We read the story of Elmer the elephant and discussed how everyone is different and unique.

 We wrote about what makes us unique and the importance of tolerance and kindness.
