Welcome to Year 1!

Here we will keep you informed of everything going on in Year 1. For more information about our topics and how you can help your child please see our Year One curriculum page.


As this is supposed to be the start of the Easter holidays we will not be setting the same structured timetable of daily Maths, English and phonics for you to choose from. However, as the holidays would normally be filled with days out and meeting up with friends or family, we have compiled some Easter and Spring themed activities for you to do if have enjoyed having a little bit of structure to your days.

We’ve loved seeing what some of you have been getting up to and I hope you’ve been enjoying the stories the teachers are reading, which can be found on the children’s pages. There will be more over the next couple of weeks so keep checking.  Please use the email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any photos or queries.

At least it looks like the sun is coming out that always helps

Take care,

Year 1 team

We have been realistic in terms of what we are expecting from the children during their time out of the classroom. The activities, where possible, will be in line with our current curriculum planning to provide a certain degree of continuity away from the classroom. We recognise that everyone will have different access to technology, resources and adult support, so have a go with what you can, when you can, and try not to worry! 

Thank you for your support,

The Year 1 Team

Star Words

Please continue to access Star Words, go back and revisit previous star words and if children can still sight read these words quickly, encourage them to spell them and use them within sentences. We have also sent home the next couple of star word sheets for each child so that you have these available for them to move onto as and when they are ready.


Many of you have already accessed the Rapid Reading site where we have been allocating two books per week for the children to read. If you haven't already then you can log in to the website here. We sent out letters containing log in details for each child on Thursday 19th March, however if you have not received the log in information for your child or have any trouble accessing this resource then please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we can try and help you with this.
