Welcome to Year 1

Typical Year 1 Timetable

A guide to Year 1 - Autumn 1

During the first week of term, we will display our guide to year 1 here. Come back soon for new updates!

Key Information

  • PE day is a Monday - your child can come to school in their PE kit every Wednesday. 
  • Your child will need their water bottle and snack every day. 
  • School Library books are changed every Friday
  • Phonetically decodable reading books will be brought home on Friday and MUST be returned to school on the following Monday. You will have the weekend to celebrate your child's reading. This is vital to ensure that the teaching and learning of Phonics and Early Reading can continue. 
  • Spellings and maths homework will be sent via Google Classroom every Friday evening for the following Friday. 


Communicating with your child's class teacher: 

Our direct year group email is As both classes use this email, please make it clear in the subject line who the email is for (FAO Miss Bradbury or FAO Mrs Cowling). 


Collecting your child at the end of the day:

As it is the start of the school year, we will be spending time learning new faces. This could mean that the process of dismissal may take a little longer. Thank you for your cooperation during this time.

If your child is being collected by another person, please ensure that your child's class teacher is aware of this in advance. The best way to do this is by contacting the school office. Due to safeguarding reasons, we cannot release a child to a person without prior instruction from the parent/carer. 


Names in clothing:

Please ensure that your child's clothing is clearly labelled with their name so their clothing can be rightfully returned (should it be taken off). 


Every Friday, a maths homework task and six spellings will be released via Google Classroom. This will be an electronic copy.  


The deadline for each maths task will be the following Friday and spelling celebration will also be held on a Friday. The spelling celebration is not a test and is not something that the children need to be worried about. The words that we will choose are based on the previous week's Phonics learning and therefore, the children will have already seen them.  We will monitor the children's progress in spelling through their writing.


Please note, this homework is to extend your child's learning, not to test them. We would like the children to complete it as independently as possible; however, if you find that your child is finding it difficult, please make a note and we can follow it up through curriculum time. 


Please see the below documents to support spelling practice each week.
