Year One

Year One

Class Teachers - Mrs Troughton and Miss Flynn Teaching Assistants - Ms Davies, Mrs McGoff, Miss Sykes and Miss Burns

The staff in Year one work together as a team to provide and support the children in their learning.

We are very fortunate to have a wonderful building and fantastic outdoor spaces. We make full use of these to facilitate our learning, making it fun! We strive to provide a wealth of experiences that enable all pupils to succeed. Within our class it is important to us that everyone feels valued and achieves their best. 

We have lots of exciting topics and educational visits planned for this year to broaden the children’s learning.

Reading in Year 1

Children will continue to move through the levelled books, which are linked to our Phonics. We encourage the children to read at home as much as they can. In school, children will be listened to at least once a week. They will also take part in a guided reading session each week. 

From our Twinkl scheme, there is now a website called Twinkl Go. This is were we can share activities, games, resources and books with you from our school account. you do not need to have an account to access these, just the 6 digit code which can be found on Showbie. 

Homework and Spellings in Year 1

Homework may be given to the children on Showbie. This is our online tool that we use throughout school.

Spellings will be linked to the sound the children have been learning in Phonics that week. A few spellings will be sent home on a Friday to learn ready for a spelling test the Friday after. 

Year One will also receive some Common Exception words to learn. The children are expected to be able to read and spell these correctly by the end of the academic year.
