In Year 1 the teachers are Mrs White and Mrs Jenman. Our Year 1 Teaching Assistant is Mrs Kirwan. There are 21 children in our class and we’re all looking forward to a great year!

In maths we will be focusing on reading, writing and counting using numbers to 100, and exploring different strategies for adding and subtracting. We will use lots of apparatus and link all of our work into problem solving.

Writing themes include stories linked to our own experiences, instructions and repeated patterns. We will be concentrating on writing on the line, spaces between words, full stops and forming letters correctly.


In reading, we will begin ‘Guided Reading,’ where we read and talk about the text in small groups. We will make predictions about characters and events, and we will describe settings and characters. 

We will have a daily phonics lesson – please see for all the different phases we will be covering (phase 3, 4 and 5).

Please remember to listen to your child read every day as it is so important for them to practise the skills they are learning in school.

In PE we will be doing games and gymnastics – our PE days are Monday and Friday and we will be working inside and outside, depending on the weather.
