Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

The team in Year 1 are Mrs Doyle and Joy.

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. 


P.E. lessons will take place on Fridays. Please make sure your child comes to school wearing their P.E. kit on a Friday.

Home Readers and Class Library Books

The children will be given a 'home reader' once a week. 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 week. 


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