Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome  to Year 1. Our teacher is Mrs Thomas and our teaching assistant s are Miss. Flynn and  Miss Tomlinson.

In Year 1 we follow the National Curriculum which means that lessons are becoming more formal and you will notice changes in the way your child is learning.  In Year 1 all children work in groups or individually to produce pieces of work every lesson.  All work is differentiated, meaning that your child is working at a level appropriate to them. Everyone is expected to have a go and do their best every day.

Reading is incredibly important for your child’s progress.  We will read with your child three times a week, following the Read, Write Inc scheme of work, and would appreciate you reading at home as often as you can (preferably every day) to support this.

In English, as in their Early Years classes, we will be continuing to reading stories and non-fiction books as well as exploring poetry and rhyming. We will be writing in sentences using capital letters at the beginning, finger spaces between words and full stops at the end.  We will develop our reading skills including phonics, sight vocabulary and comprehension.  We are starting using a new handwriting scheme and your children will be learning how to join letters.

In Maths we will be securing our understanding of place value and numbers, addition and subtraction, looking at ti me, mass/weight, 2D and 3D shapes, counting, money and multiplication and division.

Our PE lessons are every Wednesday so please make sure your child has a PE kit in school.  This will include trainers, black jogging bottoms/leggings, white t-shirt and the blue school jumper. Please can you ensure that all clothing is labelled clearly with your child's name.  As you will appreciate, all the children are wearing similar if not identical clothing both during the day and also during PE lessons.  If names are in clothing we are able to quickly return any lost items to its owner.

Half termly newsletters and current subject topic overviews can be found in the files below.


I am delighted to be working  again with your   children and I am looking forward to a very successful year.  If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to speak to me.

Yours Sincerely

 Mrs Thomas
