< Back to Year Group Pages

Welcome to Year 1!

Year 1 has three classes, Penguins, Dolphins and Octopus. Penguins are taught by Miss Preston, Dolphins by Miss Monks and Octopus by Miss Atkinson. We have a team of two super HLTAs, Miss Sutton and Mrs Fowler and two fabulous TAs by the names of Mrs Jackson and Mrs Saunders.

Read, Write, INC.
Read, Write, INC is an inclusive literacy programme for all children learning to read from Early Years Foundation Stage through to Year 4. Spelling, comprehension, handwriting and composition are all taught through the scheme. Partner work is used all the time to build confidence and share ideas.

Maths Makes Sense
Maths Makes Sense allows children to access the abstract concepts of maths. It includes direct instruction, guided practise and partner teaching. MMS is built around the 'ten big ideas' - addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, equals, the symbols speak to you, the logic of the language tells you the answer, denomination, ratio and infinity. The children get to use cups to count and understand the idea of basic fractions. Within a week, the children will look at arithmetic twice, data and measure, geometry and reasoning.

Home Reading
The children will be sent home with a reading book suited to their level. Reading books will be changed on the day that you child returns them.
Please ensure you write a comment in the reading record book and sign it, so as we know your child has read. The book will not be changed without a signature. Children are expected to read at home for 15 minutes a night as the more they practise, the quicker they will progress.

All classes have a session of outdoor PE and indoor PE.

Penguins - outdoor on a Tuesday and indoor on a Thursday.
Dolphins - indoor on a Monday and outdoor on a Wednesday.
Octopus - outdoor on a Monday and indoor on a Wednesday.

Please make sure your child has a named PE kit in school every day. We will try and take the children outside as much as we can, so please ensure they have a pair of black or navy blue joggers in their PE kit. Thank you.
