Year 1

Our teacher in Year 1 is Mrs Nicholls and she is helped by Mrs Mount and Mrs Gladstone.

Our link Governor is Mrs V Jackson

It has been an exciting start to Year 1 and we are looking forward to teaching you this next year and hope you will enjoy your time in Year 1.

Some work will be challenging, but it’s lots of fun too!

Together, we made a class agreement which will help our classroom to be a safe, fun and an enjoyable place to learn and play.

  • We will have kind words and hands and feet
  • We will always try our best
  • We will put our hands up
  • We will take turns to talk
  • We will share our things
  • We will take care of our things



Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on a Monday (outdoor PE), Wednesday (indoor PE) and Friday (Friday Finals). We encourage the children not to wear any jewellery to school. If your child wears earrings please remove them prior to our PE lessons.


Letters and Belongings

Children are encouraged to empty and deal with items in their book bags independently and to pass on appropriate letters to the teacher. Please remind your child if they have a letter to give to us in the morning. Please return any letters to school via your child’s book bag.



In Year One, your child will be given the opportunity to change their home reading book every day. All that they need to do is pop it in the basket when they first go in the classroom (don’t worry, the teacher will remind the children).  Any book that needs changing needs to be accompanied by your child’s Reading Record. Please write a comment in the Reading Diary to say that the book is finished. You may also write comments based on your child’s home reading. The children will be given a stamp every time they read with an adult and they can collect these stamps and swap them for prizes!



Homework will be given out on a Wednesday and needs to be returned the following Tuesday. Homework usually consists of an English or Maths activity or work related to our topic. Children should be able to complete the work independently or with a little help if needed. If you feel your child is finding a piece of homework too difficult, please do not hesitate to tell the class teacher or write a note in your child’s homework book.


Fruit and Snacks

All infant children are provided daily with a fresh piece of fruit or vegetable. They also have access to fresh water in their own water bottles which are kept in the classroom.
