Welcome to Year 1

Year One has two classes. 1SW is taught by Mrs Shaikh and Mrs Walton and 1M is taught by Mrs Munnelly. We have a fabulous hardworking team of Learning Support Assistants who support the class teachers, ensuring children are learning through play in our provision areas, as well as helping to develop the children’s independent skills through group and whole class tasks.

When you enter the Year One classrooms you will find colourful, vibrant, fun places with lots of active learning taking place. The Year One curriculum includes a mixture of independent play activities alongside teacher-led paired, group and individual tasks.  Our lessons use a thematic approach to learning and we aim to provide learning that the children enjoy and can relate to.

Phonics plays a large part of the Year One curriculum as we teach children how to read, write and spell using the sounds letters make in words. The children are encouraged to read at home every night, and practise applying the sounds learnt each week. Each half term our curriculum letters  are shared with parents, so they can support their child with their learning at home.

All communication is sent via the Parent App, Class Dojo or uploaded onto this web page.

If you require any further information or need to speak to a member of the team, please ring the school office, or speak to the class teacher at the end of the day.
