Year 1

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



Class Teacher: Lucy Kemp



Class Teachers: Samantha Lampard (Mon - Thurs) and Isla Ellis (Fri)


We also have Jane Full (HTLA) and Gordana Webster (TA) supporting Year 1.

PE and Forest School

On Wednesdays we have PE lessons. Children need to come into school dressed in school PE kit. When it is dry, we will go outside so please ensure your child has warm clothing (jogging bottoms, jumper or fleece)


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


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 over their PE kits. 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.



Homework is set every Friday to be completed by the following Thursday. We send weekly spellings home with the children in their homework folders, along with a termly homework overview for their IPC topic. In addition to this, we set weekly tasks on Reading Eggs and Mathletics. Please see the 'Homework' tab of our year group webpage for more information and the weekly spellings. 


Reading books

Your child will change their reading book every 3 days or every 5 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. 

If your child is isolating...
