Welcome to Year 1

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

The Year 1 Team

1B - Mrs Balaj and Mrs Bussy

1H - Mrs Hogan and Mrs Woolven

1V - Miss Voda and Mrs Winter

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 by 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.

Forest School

We really enjoy Forest Schools in Year 1.

Our days this term will be

1B + 1 H – Monday

1V – Thursday

The children will not need to bring in a change of clothes as they will be wearing a waterproof outfit, but if possible, please can you provide your child with wellington boots on the day.


PE will be on Wednesday for all classes.  The children will have a gymnastics coach this term.  1B will be having outdoor PE with Mr Kimberley on Friday, so please ensure your child has an outdoor PE kit for Friday.
