Teaching and learning

In Year 1, the children will be transitioning away from play-based learning and beginning to work more independently at their tables. Towards the end of year one, all children will take part in the national phonics screening check. We will be holding parents meetings during the year, where you can learn more about this.

Key Weekly Information

Children are expected to read every day and have their reading record signed.

A homework grid will be given to each child at the start of each term which will have many different activities for them to do. We ask that they choose which activity they want to do on a Monday and then by the following Friday, they will need to have their task completed and given in as homework for that week.

PE will now be every Wednesday and Friday. Children need to wear their full PE kit (including house t-shirts and appropriate footwear) to school on the day they have PE.


Year 1 have had such a brilliant start to the school year. They have been learning what it was like to live during the 1960’s. They have also been working amazingly hard on their phonics and have made such great progress.


Wow – what a busy Term 2 our Year 1 class have had. They’ve been learning all about the seven continents of the world and loved learning a new song about them too. They also had a very cheeky elf called Freddie visit the classroom during December. He certainly made us all laugh each day. Please click on the following link to read more:
