Welcome to Year 1’s Class Page.
Our Teacher is Miss Threlfall and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Costas-Walker (Mon/Tue), Mrs Lock (Wed/Thu/Fri) and Mr Fletcher (mornings). We are enjoying an exciting and a more ‘normal’ year in school with lots of engaging and exciting learning happening both inside and outside the classroom. Remember to look here and on Seesaw regularly for news, updates and other information.
Our PE days during the Summer Term are Monday and Wednesday.
Please ensure reading books and records are in school each day so we can hear the children read regularly in school. Now the children are in Year One and becoming more independent, we encourage them to be responsible for giving in anything they need to from their book bags- please tell them if there is something they need to pass to us in the morning.
Please ensure you are familiar with our school absence procedures, including current Covid-19 guidance. Please inform the office of any absence in the morning, and also should your child need to attend a medical appointment during the school day. Please also be aware that it is a school rule that only water should be in water bottles- no juice.
Do get in touch via Seesaw if you have any queries, questions or information to share.
Please see below for our year overview and medium term plans. The medium term plans will be added at the beginning of each term.

Recommended Reads for Year 1
Letter and Number Formation
Please use these documents to support your child when writing letters and numerals. The children use these in the classroom so are familiar with them.
Moving forwards this half term, Miss Threlfall will be managing the Year One remote learning and also the learning for the children in school. Therefore Miss Threlfall will be your main point of contact for consistency for both yourselves and Miss Threlfall.
I will be uploading the daily phonics activities and videos for each week and responses via Seesaw monitored by myself. This will be a mixture of my own videos, links to appropriate Letters and Sounds videos and practical activities to go alongside their phonics learning. The children will continue to follow the medium term plan I had prepared for this term. For this week I will focus on using Letters and Sounds, so I can prepare more interactive work for next week.
Year One’s home learning will be on the class page each week by Monday at 8.45am and this will include Maths, Literacy and wider curriculum activities for the rest of the week.
Thank you for your support this week and look after each other,
