Welcome to Year 1
The Year 1 Staff
The Year 1 staff support the children's learning as they make the transition from the Early Years Foundation Stage to Key Stage One.
The Year One team consists of teachers; Miss Mitchell, Miss Searls, Mrs Morris and Mrs McGuinness and Teaching Assistants; Ms Cripps, Miss Moore, Miss Topping, Miss Whitehead and Miss Moth.
In Year 1 it is so important that the children are reading every day. Your child’s reading scheme book will be changed on a Monday and Thursday after they have read to an adult at home, or to the teacher/teaching assistant at school and can show that they have a good understanding of what they have read. Reading the same text at least twice will help the children develop their comprehension as well as their segmenting and blending skills.
Starting after October half term, Year 1 will have spellings homework each week. The spellings will be focusing on high frequency words and common exception words. All homework will be set via DB Primary on a Monday and a spellings “quiz” will take place on a Friday.
1BM and 1CS have Forest School every Wednesday and PE every Thursday. On a Thursday, please can children come to school wearing their correct PE kit.
