Year 1 2020 - 2021

Miss Barrow

Mrs Holden

A big hello to all our new Year 1 children!smiley

We are so excited to be teaching you in September.  Your new teachers are Mrs Holden and Miss Barrow and our amazing teaching assistants who will be helping us all in class are Mrs Caliskan and Mrs Simpson.


This term our class topic is THIS IS ME!

We will be finding out about the area we live in, have fun drawing maps and discussing our families and those people who are important to us.

In the morning, we will have English and Maths and Phonics. Class assemblies will take place in the classroom. In the afternoon, we will be focusing on our topic, science, computing and PE.  Children are asked to wear PE kit to school on these days. No PE kit is to be kept in school. We will inform you soon about which days PE will be on.

We love reading in Year 1!  We will begin the year by ensuring that each child is still in the habit of reading at home at least three times a week.  Reading is the foundation of all learning and your child will really benefit from regular reading with an adult at home.  The class teachers check reading diaries each week…and there are prizes! 

We are looking forward to an exciting and busy term.

Mrs Holden, Miss Barrow, Mrs Simpson and Mrs Caliskan
