Welcome to Year 1

In Year 1 we are busy growing our brains and becoming more independent learners. We Aim High and Take Pride in everything we do. Our theme this term is:

'On the Doorstep'- We take a close look at our school environment and find out about plants that grow in our school grounds. We focus on our personal history and look at how toys have changed from the time of our grandparents.

We will also have a number of mini topics based on the interests of the children.


Developing accuracy and fluency is an important part of Year 1. Children will be given books to take home and these will be changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We ask that the children read the book three times.

  • First read to focus on decoding
  • Second read to read with greater fluency
  • Third read to respond to questions.


In Autumn 2, tricky words will be sent home via Class Dojo to help children recognise words that are not decodable.

In Autumn 2, children will be sent a weekly spelling list with a phonics focus or tricky words that the children might be finding difficult in their writing.


Year 1 have PE every Friday and will need to come to school dressed in their PE kit.

They will have swimming every Monday.



Here are some links to websites and games you could use at home.
