Year 1 2021 - 2022

Mrs Gordon

 Welcome to Year 1!

As we start a new academic year I would like to share with you some very useful information.

Working with your child this year will be myself, Mrs Gordon and Mrs Judge, who will be our TA.  On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, Mrs Hesketh, an HLTA will be covering the class, teaching a number of different lessons such as PSHE, RE and art. 

P.E.  is on Mondays and Fridays.  Can you please ensure the children have their PE kit in school on these days.

Reading - Your child will be read with on a regular basis in school so can you please ensure they have their book bags in school daily and that their book and reading record are in it. On the front of their reading record is the day they will be read with in school.  

Homework - Either English or Maths homework will be set weekly and will be your your childs portal on the school website. Reading homework will be set everyweek and we ask that you read with your child at least 3 times a week and record it in their record book.

Spellings - Spellings will be give out each week on a Friday to be tested the following Friday.  It would be helpful if you could practice your child's spellings daily.

This term our topic is Twisted Tales - we will be looking at different types of houses and use what we have discovered to create a house we think The Three Little Wolves might like to live in.  Please have a look at our topic plans for more detailed information about what your child will be learning.

The transition from Reception to Year 1 is a big step for your child, with this in mind we will be using the first two weeks to settle the children into routines and help them begin to understand what is expected of them.  So please don't expect any homework during this time.


If your child is required to go for a PCR test or is self isolating due to a positive result please use the following websites which will enable your child to continue learning.



Thank you for your continued support

Mrs Gordon
