Year 1

Welcome to Year 1


Teachers - Mrs Spencer-Burton & Mrs Askill

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Tudor


Our aim in Year 1 is to ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day, and the children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year goes on so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners. Please don’t hesitate to come and see us either before or after school if you have any questions or queries.

Our Class Saints are the Holy Family.

Reading at home


Children will be given a set of books to take home to read each week. It is important that your child reads daily at home and they must be able to talk about what they have read and discuss words that may be unfamiliar to them. As the children develop in confidence they should begin to use expression. Please make a note of how your child found the book and any tricky words in the Reading Record. These notes can be brief!


Your child’s book changing day can be found on the front of their reading record.


If your child does not have their reading book at home, Oxford Owl provide free eBooks. Click the link below to access the books:






Spellings will be set on a Friday and will be tested on the following Friday. Children will need to practise these daily at home.


Spellings w/c 18.10.21






Maths Homework


After October half term children will be set maths homework on a Friday, this will either link to their current learning topic in maths or it may be revision of key number facts. The homework may be a worksheet or interactive games which can be found on Login details for this will be given at a later date and will be stuck into the front of your child's Reading Record. 


Phonics Screening Check


At the end of Year One in June, pupils sit a short Phonics Screening Check to assess their reading ability. More information on this can be found on the video link below.
