Welcome to Year 1's class page!

A big hello from Miss Alderson, Miss Harrison, Mrs Dunn, Mrs Thomas and Miss Galli!


We have loved welcoming the new Year 1 children back into school. We hope you and your child found all the resources useful, especially when you first returned to school. 
Here is a letter outlining all of the key messages that are unique to Year 1. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. 
Keeping healthy
Here is the hand washing video that we have used to learn how to wash our hands properly. Remember, we need to wash our hands when we have used the toilet, before we eat and when we come into a new environment.

Our Creative Curriculum

We have created a Long Term Plan overview of what Year 1's curriculum is going to look like this year. We have worked incredibly hard to ensure that there are broad and balanced opportunities for all children to achieve and flourish during their time at school. Please take a look at what your child is going to be learning about over this year. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask Miss Alderson or Miss Harrison - we are very happy to talk to you about our exciting work!

Our learning in pictures



Every Wednesday, 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 Wednesday

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. 


Due to Covid-19 guidance, we cannot accept the homework back to mark it; however, we are able to post the answers after the deadline.

Here are the answers from last week's homework, all about using a number line. 
Here is this week's homework, all about using part whole models. 



Every Wednesday, your child will be tested on 6 spellings that they have learned the previous week.  The new spellings will be handed out each Wednesday. We will tell your child their score out of 6 for them to share with you. 


Recommended Reading

Please see the below link which has been made available for all families to access. It contains the recommended reading for children in Year 1. It has a lovely mixture of fiction and non-fiction texts which will really enhance your child's comprehension skills. 

Cursive Handwriting

In Year 1, we begin to teach the children how to form letters using the cursive script. Although this does look very confusing, the children have taken it in their stride and try so hard to ensure that they use cursive letters, even when they're writing on white boards. Please see the below document which demonstrates how the letters need to look in the cursive script. If your child is writing at home, please encourage them to use the cursive script so it becomes second nature to them. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
