Year 1 2023 - 2024

Welcome to Year 1's class page

Our class teacher is Miss Booth. 

Miss Pickervance helps us with our learning.

The door opens on the infant yard for our class at 8.40am and the school day starts at 8.45am. For collection at the end of the day, the children dismissed from our classroom door by their parents at 3.20pm.


Homework each week will usually consist of:

1x Literacy and 1x Maths

Each half term:1 x Other (usually science or topic work)

Homework will be sent home weekly and children will be given a week to complete and return. 

If children ever have problems with their homework, please encourage them to speak to me about it as soon as possible. We can then go through it again together before it is due to be handed in.

General Reminders…

Indoor PE - Monday

Outdoor PE - Wednesday

Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school and that all items are clearly labelled. Trainers and a sweatshirt or jumper may be worn for outdoor PE.

Children should have in school a small water bottle with a non-spill spout.


We change our books every Monday and Thursday. Please read with your child every evening and sign the Reading Diary. In the diary you will find questions to help you read with your child. The children need to be able to decode the words and also need to learn how to 'read for meaning'. The children should be able to read the book that they have chosen and answer questions about the book. They will have a task to complete once a week using their reading book to help them. 

Children also have access to their own Active Learn Phonics Bug account. Details will be sent out at the beginning of the school year. The books on your child's account are age-related and at the phase your child is working in phonics. 


Later on in the school year, the children in Year 1 will be completing the phonics screening check. In preparation for this, details will be sent to parents with useful resources and website links to support with phonics learning. For further information on Phonics, please look at the Phonics page.

Class Dojo

The school is continuing to use the Class Dojo software as a reward system. Most parents are already signed up from last year but for those who aren't, a letter detailing how to sign up and access the app will be sent home with your child. Once downloaded, you will then be able to see how your child is getting on in class and have access to the message facility where I will post updates about the class.
