Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. Below you will find links to homework, letters and our class gallery. 



Class Teacher: Lucy Kemp



Class Teachers: Sarah Martin (Mon - Wed) and Samantha Lampard (Wed-Fri)


We also have Jane Full (HTLA) and Amanda Symons (TA) supporting Year 1.

PE Days

On Thursday mornings we have PE lessons. Please could children come into school these days dressed in appropriate PE kit. When it is dry, we will go outside so please ensure your child has warm clothing. 



Spelling homework is given out every Friday and to be returned the following Thursday. 

There will also be a homework task set on Reading Eggs weekly and Maths homework - this will be published on the website under 'Homework'. 


Reading books

We change books every 3 days, in line with our Read, Write, Inc lessons. Your child will get a picture book to share at home and a 'book bag book' linked to their phonics learning, which they should read 3 times. 

Outdoor Learning Sessions

All children in Year 1 will attend regular Outdoor Learning sessions throughout the school year.  These sessions take place on the school site, predominantly based in our Forest School area. 

Sessions take place on a Tuesday afternoon. Please see the table below to know when your child's sessions are.

Parents/Carers do not need to supply any additional equipment for these sessions; waterproofs and wellington boots are provided.  However, when the weather is cold, children may wish to bring named hats/gloves to school and wear extra layers and if the weather is warm, sun hats are advised. We encourage the children to change their footwear independently - please avoid sending your child to school in shoes with laces unless they are able to tie them.
