1HA and 1RH

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1's class page! This is where you will find all of the information that you may need throughout your child's time in Year 1. 

New to Year 1 Meeting

Thank you to all of the parents and carers who attended one of the two New to Year 1 Meetings on Thursday 12th September. It was really lovely to see so many of you! In addition, thank you to those adults who requested the information if they couldn't make the meeting. 

Please find the PowerPoint underneath. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask either Miss Alderson or Miss Harrison. 

Phonics Workshop 1

Thank you to all of the parents who attended either sessions on Thursday 26th September. It was really lovely to see so many parents who are excited to learn how to teach reading through Phonics. Please see the PowerPoint and handouts that were used below. 

Feel free to take a look through these at your own leisure - if there is anything that you are unsure about, please do not hesitate to get in touch with either Miss Alderson or Miss Harrison. 


Please see the 'generic' timetable for Year 1. The orange writing shows where 1RH would complete an activity and the purple writing shows where 1HA would complete an activity. 

When there is a special event or themed week, this timetable may vary slightly.



Every Friday, a Maths homework sheet will be handed out to every child. This will be a paper copy. In addition, an electronic copy will be available on the website

The deadline for each Maths sheet will be the following Friday

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. 


Year 1 Spellings


Every Monday, your child will be tested on 6 spellings that they have learned the previous week. The next set of spellings will be released on the Tuesday, along with a slip of your child's results. This will clearly state if your child has got any spellings wrong and how they have spelled it. This will allow you to see where they have gone wrong. 


Chilli Challenge

Please find this half term's Chilli Challenge Grid below. All of the activities are linked directly to our learning. Please note that some of the learning may not have occurred yet. 

Once your Chilli Challenge has been completed, please bring it into school so we are able to celebrate your child's great work!

The deadline for all Chilli Challenges for this half term is Thursday 24th October
