Term 1

Welcome to Year 1,


We have really enjoyed meeting all of the children and getting to know them throughout these first few days and have been delighted with the excitement and enthusiasm the children have returned with.


The children will be spending time in both classrooms where they will have the chance to learn through play and have a more structured learning opportunity.  This is to aid with the transition from Reception to Year 1. 


We will be updating our class web page regularly with photos and comments about the week's learning and any important information. Click on the overview link above to check out this term’s learning!



Every week, your child will choose a book from the class library as well as a levelled book from Oxford Reading Buddy.  Please encourage your child to read at home and feel free to ask if you need any support.  Please ensure that children bring in their books and book bags every day.


PE days are Wednesday and Friday

Please can children arrive at school in their PE kits on these days and they will stay in them for the whole day. Children must wear a school jumper over their kit.


Mr Marquez-Vega will be teaching Monday to Friday in 1 Willow.  Mrs Shreeves will be teaching 1 Hawthorn on Mondays and Tuesdays with Miss Mullholland teaching, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Every Tuesday, Mrs McClelland and Mr Harvey will be teaching RE and Art in both 1 Willow and 1 Hawthorn.  LSAs in Year 1 are Miss Cornelius, Mr Harvey, Mrs Abbas and Miss Nicholls.


Thank you for your continued support

The Year 1 Team

Week Beginning 06/09/21


What a great start to the year!  The children have loved being back and have a lot of energy and joy though I am sure they are very tired now that it is the end of the week! 

We have been so busy working on Art, Science, English, Maths and History.  It has been great going back into school assemblies and the children have loved singing assemblies in particular.  

Some of the highlights have been learning new songs, do ask about the banana song, and of course starting our self portraits which will be eventually be displayed in the classroom.
