Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

Teacher:  Mr Brooke

Teaching Assistant: Mr Davies


The children have P.E on Tuesdays, children need to come to school in their P.E kit. Please ensure that earrings are either removed or studs covered with tape.


All children need to have a NAMED water bottle in school everyday. A piece of fruit is provided everyday for your child to have for snack, so there is no need to send in snacks for Year 1.


Housepoints are awarded to pupils for positive behaviour and demonstrating an amazing effort with their learning.

Home Learning

Given out: Monday

Completed and handed in by: Friday


Each week your child will be given home learning to practise the skills covered in school. They will cover:

  • Spellings linked to their learning in phonics. Practise being able to read and spell the words.
  • Reading books please encourage reading for up to 10 minutes. This will develop confidence in school as well as at home. Please remember to bring these in on a Friday so children can have their book changed for the following Monday


We also set weekly Mathletics challenges for your child, we expect children to spend around 30 minutes per week to complete these at home. Your child's log in details are in the front of their home learning book. See the Maths tab below for information.

Remote Home learning


This home learning is made to support to child's learning at home.


I understand sharing devices and technology at home and parents working means we cannot always upload things during the 'school working day' so if these uploads happen during the evening I completely understand.

We also have bug-club and Mathletics to support your child ss well.

Things to practise every day!




Access bug club to spend time practising reading. It is very important to enjoy reading and get as much out of it as you can.


Whether it is a picture in a book or words they can recognise whilst on a walk to the shops, reading can be enjoyed anywhere. 


Unfortunately, we cannot send books home but with the use of Bug club this has supported interactivity for your child.



Year 1 Spring overview 2021



As a parent you will probably have
heard the word “phonics” used when
talking about the way that children
learn to read. When you were a child,
it’s possible that you were taught
to read through learning by sight,
looking at the shape of the word as
a whole.

These days, children are encouraged
to break down the individual sounds in
words in order to “decode” them and
work out what they are.They may also
be pronounced in a different way than
you are familiar with, as children are
taught to only say the very smallest
unit of sound, so for example, the letter
‘m’ is pronounced ‘mmmm’ instead of
‘muh’. Here are some of the key aspects
you’ll need to know to help your children
with their phonics learning.


Please see below some Phonics information which may help you at home.


Many thanks,


Mr Brooke and Mrs Cooper
