Year 1

Welcome back to Year 1!

We hope you are looking forward to the rest of the year back in school. We are really looking forward to welcoming you all back!


We are all here to help you with any questions or problems you may have so please do not hesitate to ask. We realise that it has been a strange year for everybody and your happiness at school is very important to all of us.


Here is some important information about your school week:


Reading Books

Please bring your reading book and reading record to school on Tuesday and Thursday. These days will remain year 1 reading days where your child will read to the class teacher or teaching assistant.


Reading Practice

You should be reading every day at home (if possible) and, as a minimum, three times a week. Research into learning shows that the more that you develop your comprehension skills and understanding of vocabulary the better you will do in school across the whole of the curriculum. 



P.E days will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Please wear appropriate P.E kit to school on these days. Prepare for the sessions to be outdoors unless the weather does not allow for this.


Daily Equipment

Every day, you will not need to bring anything to school other than a water bottle and your packed lunch (if you are not having a school dinner), as all other equipment will be provided for you. 



Homework activities will resume after the Easter holidays. In the meantime, please continue to read regularly and practise reading and writing the year 1 common exception word list. These are the words that you should aim to spell and read correctly in any independent work, not just for a weekly test.


Seesaw App

Please do continue to use this app to share any learning that you have completed at home or to get in contact with us. 


We are all here to help you with any questions or problems you may have so please do not hesitate to ask.

Year 1 Knowledge Organisers


The Year 1 knowledge organisers are to share your child's curriculum journey whilst in KS1.

At the start of each unit we will talk through the knowledge organiser, asking the children what information has sparked their interest, and if they have any questions.

Therefore, please view them to see what your child will be learning each term and what new skills they will be developing.
