Welcome to our Year 1 page.

There are two classes in Year 1: 1AK and 1LS.

The Year 1 team is made up of Miss Kirby, Miss Shahana, Mrs Saleem, Mrs Hanif and Mrs Gordan-Smith.


Learning in Year 1

We recognise the differences between learning in EYFS to KS1 and ensure our pupils have a smooth transition using continuous provision, focus groups and whole class teaching.

A real focus in Year 1 is the teaching and learning of phonics to ensure that children have the necessary skills to be able to read fluently.  Our pupils will undertake the statutory phonics screening check in June.


PE takes place every Tuesday.


Homework is set on a Thursday and is due by the following Tuesday.



Reading is an essential life skill and we believe that all children should be given the opportunity to read often.  All pupils are given a reading book that is suited to their reading stage and a picture book of their choice to take home and read.  Please share these books with your child at home and let us know how they have got on with their reading by leaving a comment in their reading records.
