Year 1

Welcome to year 1


The year 1 team for 2023/2024 consists of Mrs McCarthy and Mrs Witts (1C) and Miss Wonzeri (1D), along with our teaching assistants Miss Warner and Miss Barker. 


Year 1 PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Please familiarise yourself with our uniform policy in relation to PE, including health and safety requirements linked to jewellery.


Please ensure that your child brings in a water bottle and their reading book/record, as well as their link book, every day. Reading books will changed weekly and each child will have an allocated day where their books will be changed. 


Homework is set on a Tuesday, and is due in by the following Monday. In addition to this, the children will be provided with weekly spellings that will be tested on the following Monday. These spellings can be found on their weekly homework sheet.


Children should be reading to an adult at least three times per week for at least 15/20 minutes each time. Reading can take place with either the book sent home from school or an allocated book on your child's Bug Club. Each book must be recorded in your child's reading record, including any e-books.


Please ensure that any belongings are labelled - it makes it easier to return when left around school!
