Welcome to Year 1!

The team in Year 1 are Miss Williams, Joy, Miss O' Keeffe and Mr Eaton.


Water Bottles

Please provide your child with a reusable bottle of water every day. 

School Dinners

All the children in Year 1 are entitled to a school meal every day. 


Please make sure your child comes to school wearing their P.E. kit. 

Home Readers and Class Library Books

The children will be given a 'home reader' once a week on Thursdays. This is a book that matches their developing phonic knowledge.  Your child should be able to use their decoding strategies e.g. sounding out and blending to read this book out loud to an adult.  This book should be returned on the following Thursday. 

The children will also get the chance to choose a book from the Class Library on Thursdays. This book is a ‘reading for pleasure’ book and can be shared with an adult at home.  It should also be returned the following Thursday. 


In Key Stage 1 children continue to be taught using the 'Letters and Sounds' programme. Listed below are some useful resources.
