Year 1

Welcome to our Year 1 Page!

This year Mrs Turner (class 5) and Miss Metcalfe (class 4) are your child’s class teachers and Mrs Smith and Miss Hayes are the teaching assistants.

The school day starts at 8:45am as the classroom doors open. Please wait behind the locked fence/gate until this time. Registration is at 9:00am and learning starts immediately after. The school day ends at 3:15pm and children will need to be collected by an adult from the classroom fence.

If you would like your child to be collected from school by someone other than yourself then you must inform the office staff or the classroom teacher.

Our learning so far

So far, Year 1 have learned all about the woodland and the book The Bog Baby in our topic ‘Enchanted Woodland’. Year 1 have also learned all about different parts of a flower and the different countries within the UK. We have begun our growth mindset work and are working on perseverance and an I can do it attitude!

Important days

PE – Our PE days are every Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that children have both an indoor and an outdoor PE kit. We recommend that your child has their PE kit in school all week, just in case we manage to sneak an extra session in!

Homework – Literacy Homework is handed out every half term and be brought in at any time to collect your dojos. Maths homework is handed out every block of learning and can be handed in Friday Please ensure that your child does their homework at home as it ensures that they get extra practice. It’s so important! Homework will consist of spellings as per the letter and pack that went out in the first week of term. Reading with your child three times a week earns them an extra dojo point too!

Please speak to any of us if there any issues or contact us over Dojo.

Thank you for your support.
