Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

Summer 1

Welcome back after the Easter holidays.  We hope you had a good break and enjoyed some days out now the restrictions are easing a little.  

Our current precautions and Covid restrictions are still in place throughout school and we will continue to remain in our year group bubbles. If circumstances change, we will of course inform you as necessary.

We are hoping to begin homework again this half term and further details will be sent out the first week back.

Also, as part of a whole school initiative, we are providing an extra reading lesson every week for all children.  In year 1, this will take place on a Wednesday afternoon and we will rota the other subjects each week to ensure fair coverage across the half term.

On this page is some general information about year 1.  We are continuing to use the Weduc app to communicate with parents and send out information.


Your teachers this year are:

Mrs Birch 1B class teacher and KS1 team leader

Mrs Hitchon 1H class teacher

Mrs Smith teaching assistant

Mrs Cotterill teaching assistant

Mrs Jones learning support assistant

Mrs Harte learning support assistant



We will always do out best to keep parents up to date with information via the Weduc app and the website.  If you need to speak to your child's class teacher we can be contacted via phone or Weduc.  During the current Covid-19 restrictions we are avoiding face to face meetings where possible.


Some key points to remember: 

  • PE kits need to be sent into school on a Monday and Tuesday and children will go home in their PE kits on these days.


  • If children are having a school meal, dinner menus need to be sent into school every Monday.


  • New reading books will be sent home on a Tuesday and collected in on a Friday so we can quarantine them over the weekend. Reading will need to be recorded in link books.  


  • Link books need to be in school every day.


  • Homework will be sent home on a Friday and needs to be returned the following Wednesday.


Many thanks
