Year 1

Welcome to Year 1's
Class page



On our class page you will find out what topics we are covering in class, your child's daily timetable and other useful information. Keep checking the Class Dojo page too, as we will be uploading what we are doing in class!

The Year 1 team consist of: Miss Yarnold, who is the class teacher and Mrs Smith and Mrs Kenny, who are teaching assistants. We look forward to working with your child and yourself during your child's time in Year 1.

PE Kits

Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday so please ensure your child's PE kit is in school on that day. PE kits will be sent home every Friday to be washed. Please ensure your child's PE kit is labelled. 


In year 1 children will be expected to read at least 3 times per week. This must signed for each time in their reading diary. This will be checked weekly. You're child be accessing both the Collins Ebooks, where they have been assigned books at their specific level, and their reading books. They will also be given new home reading books every Friday.  If you are struggling to support your child with their homework then please contact Miss Yarnold for support. 


Please can you send your child in with a water bottle (filled) everyday. Water bottles will be sent home every night to be washed. 

There will also be fruit available for all children at morning snack time. If you wish your child to bring an additional snack then this must be a healthy option- we do not allow crisps or chocolate at snack time.

Please ensure that you order your child's school dinner each day via parent pay.  

Additional Notes

Please ensure your child has a waterproof coat in school as our weather is very unpredictable and the children will be accessing fresh air in all weathers.
