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 1. In Year 1, our teachers are Miss Mitchell and Miss Fletcher. We also have two fantastic Teaching Assistants who help to support us, we have Mrs Cripps and Miss Moth. 1BM are very lucky to have their PPA covered by Mrs Morris and 1AF are very lucky to have their PPA covered by Mrs Sellers.
What Our Week Looks Like
In Year 1 it is so important that we read every single day. We change our reading books Mondays and Thursdays after reading our book at least twice. Reading a book twice will help us develop our comprehension as well as our segmenting and blending. Starting from October half term, Year 1 have Maths and Spellings homework each week. The spellings will be focusing on high frequency words and phonics. All homework will be set via DB Primary on a Monday and will need to be submitted or a photograph sent on DB Primary by Friday.
1BM and 1AF have PE and Forest School every Thursday. Please ensure that your child comes in wearing their PE kit.
