Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

Class Teacher: Miss Sudworth

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Cammish

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Allen

We are so proud of all the children and how hard they are working. We hope you enjoy sharing all of our wonderful learning experiences. 



Homework and Spellings will be handed out on a Friday and collected in the following Thursday. We believe that homework is important to help the children consolidate their understanding of what we have been learning that week. Please can you remind your child to place their homework into the homework box. 


Reading books can be changed as often as the children wish as long as their reading diary has been signed to say that they have read at home. If your child is not enjoying a particular book, we are happy for them to choose another. Please use the question prompts sent home to support your child when reading. 

Reading for pleasure is a key part in developing a child's love and enjoyment of reading. We would encourage you to share stories at home with your child and encourage them to read a variety of books, as well as their school reading book. On a Friday afternoon, we will check the children's reading record book in the hope they have read 5 times a week at home. Their name will then be placed into Mr Smith's golden box. 


P.E - please ensure that P.E kits are in school. 

During summer term, Year 1 will be attending swimming lessons on a Friday afternoon. Please ensure your child has a plain swimming costume/swimming trunks, school swimming cap, towel and goggles. A swimming cap can be purchased from the school office.

We all laid a stone in remembrance of all British military personnel who lost their lives during World War 1. 

Autumn Walk


We loved going on an autumn walk in the forest. Look what we found! 

Toy Makers


Thank you to all the children in Year 1 who took the time and effort to create their own toy at home. They were amazing! We all loved playing with each others toys. 

When Year 1 met Charlie

Super Builders 


Look what we made! Teamwork. 

Music Superstars


We learnt a song called Che Che Koolay, that comes all the way from Africa. We had so much fun learning the words and playing the beat with different percussion instruments. 



A BIG thank you for donating food towards our Harvest service. We enjoyed sharing our poem in church.

Harvest is a time when we thank God.

A time to share the food we have.

Remembering other people.

Vegetables delicious to eat.

Enjoy God's gifts.

Sharing with other people.

Thank you God for the Harvest. 

A super start to Year 1


We are really pleased with the way the children are settling in to Year 1.smiley  They look very smart in their uniforms, have lovely manners and are working very hard.  What a great start!  Keep it up!

Fun Day Out

What a fantastic day we had at the Liverpool Museum. We enjoyed exploring old and new toys, especially the dressing up costumes and the table top spinners. Everyone was enthusiastic and loved every minute of it. We gained lots of new and valuable knowledge that we took back to school with us and we couldn’t wait to share our day with everyone.
