Year One begins the children's journey into Key Stage One, so it's a very important year!  We do lots of hands on leaning through our inspiring and creative curriculum.

We look forward to sharing our new and exciting news with you about all the fantastic things that happen in our Year 1 class.

Here are a few things you might like to know about our year group:


  • Weekly spellings  tested every Monday.
  • Maths and English task  handed out on Friday, to be returned to school no later than the following Wednesday.
  • Daily reading  each child will change their reading books on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. On the days when children do not change their books we encourage you to share discussions about the child's reading book to improve comprehension skills.  You may want to use focused questions.
  •  Sometimes our homework will be a project such as a timeline, family tree,etc.  Every project will be sent home instead of the weekly Maths and English tasks.


  • PE on a Tuesday and Thursday.
  • Computing on a Monday.
  • Daily Phonics lessons to help prepare the children for the Phonics Screening Check in June.
  • Library on a Friday Afternoon.
  • Show and Tell on a Monday.

 What will the children need in school?

  • Everyday each child should bring to school their book bag containing their reading record and reading book.
  • A bottle filled with a drink for lunch should be with each child every day.
  • Each child should have a water bottle to be kept in school.
  • Each child is expected to have a PE kit in line with the school uniform policy.
