Teacher Message

Dear Parents,


Welcome to our Year 1 class page and a Happy New Year to each and every one of you. 


Year 1 have been excited to share their Christmas festivities with each other and have settled back nicely into their new school term. 

Please continue to take time to look at our class page which is updated with more information and photographs of what we have been learning in class.


It is our priority to ensure that your child remains happy and safe whilst in our care. However, if you do have any queries, questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us by email. Alternatively you can fill out the contact form below which will send us a direct message.

Homework in Year 1

Homework in Year 1 will be handed out on a Friday and will be due back in on a Wednesday. The main focus will be on phonics and spelling patterns. This year we will be trialling homework through Google Classroom but don’t panic, we know this will take time to set all the children up! We will keep you updated and well informed when we are ready to start this. Children will have all their usernames and passwords located inside their reading packets. 

Reading in Year 1

Children will continue to develop their reading skills through the teaching of phonics in class and with their own class reading book. We aim to change these books once a week and we would welcome the opportunity for you to listen to your child as much as possible to help build their confidence in this area. Please sign your child’s reading record every time you listen to them read and where necessary notify us with your comments. These can be very useful. You are also welcome to record comments about additional books your child has taken an interest in or any books you may read to your child also. 

Forest School in Year 1

This will take place every Tuesday afternoon during all weathers. We would strongly advise that you send your child into school with a clearly labelled pair of wellies along with a clearly labelled warm waterproof jacket or preferably a wet suit. They can get very messy! 

Physical Education in Year 1

This will take place every Friday afternoon. Please remember that this year, we will be expecting your child to come into school all ready in their full St Anne’s PE kit and please ensure that earrings have been removed on this day. Children with long hair will also be expected to have this tied up. 

We thank you, in advance, for your continued support.

Mrs McCabe and Mrs Trattos
