In Year 1 our teachers are Mrs Golden (Monday and Tuesday) and Miss Humphries (Wednesday to Friday). Miss Dowsett is our class Teaching Assistant. Miss Carpenter and Mrs Ball also work in Squirrels Class as 1:1 Teaching Assistants.

This year the children are starting to learn a new curriculum although in Term 1 and 2 we will be making sure the children experience a smooth transition from Reception to Year 1.

We have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays and Forest School on a Thursday.

Reading will continue to be a priority this year and we strongly encourage you to read with your children as often as possible. There is an expectation that your child reads a minimum of 4 times per week.

We read with your children in groups or 1:1 daily and they will bring home a book to read to you. This will be changed on Mondays and Thursdays if they have read it at home.

The children will continue their phonics learning this year and will also bring home their group book during the week. The children will have read this in school.

Over the year the children will begin to experience more subject specific learning but we are sure they will rise to the challenge and enjoy their learning this year. We look forward to a fantastic year.
