Hello and welcome to Year 1
In year 1 we have a fantastic team to support your children, this includes: Miss Holroyd, Miss Flanagan, Mrs Lang, Miss Maloney and Miss Robinson.
To ensure you don’t miss any important information and are up to date with what is going on in school, please ensure you check your child’s book bag for letters, read our school news letter and check the school website. You can also follow the year 1 team on twitter @MissGFlanagan and @missholroyd.
This year we are working extremely hard in ensuring your child has the best possible learning experience. Your children are taking a big leap from reception to year 1 and this year we have a lot more of the curriculum to cover, due to this punctuality is vital. Our lessons start at 9.05, we ask could you please ensure your children arrive at school on time.
During the summer term the children will be participating in a phonics screening test. This is a legal requirement set by the government. Throughout the year the children will be building on their phonic knowledge in preparation for these tests, this will be done through daily phonics sessions and interventions. More information regarding the phonics screening test can be made available on request.
During the autumn term we will be studying the following:
History- Home and toys.
Science- Animals including humans and everyday materials.
Art- Mixed media.
Geography- Our locality.
DT- Fruit kebabs.
RE- The natural world.
