Welcome to Year 1


Attention- calling all Year 1 superheroes!

Who's your favourite superhero? Is it Spiderman or Wonder Woman? Maybe your heroes are ordinary people who've achieved great things. Or is it those people who save lives in our emergency services that you admire most?

This half term we will need you to use your superhero senses to complete our superhero challenges! You will need to find out what true superheroes eat to keep their senses and special powers sharp. Are you ready for the challenge?



Remember to come dressed as a superhero on Monday 10th September!

If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please contact the office to make an appointment to see us, we are more than happy to meet with you. Remember short messages can be passed on to the staff who are on the door each morning.

 We have been very happy to see so many  of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.

P.E. will be on Wednesdays. All children must have a school  P.E. kit to change into. Please ensure these are named.

We encourage all children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well hydrated and to keep their brains working to the best of their ability. Please could you make sure that water bottles are labelled clearly with the child's full name.

In Year 1 reading at home  is vitally important for the children, please remember that you have access to a wealth of  Bug Club books to support this.

We expect the children to read  out loud to an adult at least 5 times a week at home. Please sign, or put your initials on, the homework sheet to confirm that this has been completed. Spellings (choose 5-10 each week from the Year 1 list)  and maths passports need to be completed at least twice a week.    These also need to be signed for by an adult on the homework sheet. Further to this some children will continue to receive their phonics books and they should practise and consolidate the sounds and words at home.


Children should have their homework folders in school every day. Homework sheets will be checked in school on Fridays.



Please remember to use My Maths at home to support your child's learning. Tasks will be set by teachers when appropriate to reinforce learning.  General number activities can be accessed at any point.


Remember that children are welcome to wear boots to school but need school shoes to change into when they arrive.
