Year 1 2023 - 2024

Miss Barrow

Mrs Holden

Hi there,

Welcome to our Year One page! The teachers in Year One are Mrs Holden and Miss Barrow and our amazing teaching assistants are Mrs Caliskan, Mrs Wheldon and Mrs Mainwaring

This half term our class topic is "This is me".  Come along and find out what we will be learning about over the next seven weeks...


Our English work will be based around the picture book "Lost and Found" by Oliver Jeffers.  We will write our own stories based upon his story.


In Maths we will be focusing on Place Value to 10 and Addition and Subtraction within 10. 


In our science lessons we will be focusing on humans and our bodies.

Geography and History

In Geography and History we will be studying our local area and we will take a trip to Verdin Park. We will create maps of our journey and we will find out all about Robert Verdin - who gifted the people of Northwich with the park.

Have a look at our "This is me" topic web to find out more about what we will be up to this term!

Year 1 Routine

In the morning, we will have English and Maths and Phonics.  Assemblies will take place in the hall.  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 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 online reading diaries each week.

We are looking forward to an exciting and busy half term.

Mrs Holden, Miss Barrow, Mrs Caliskan, Mrs Wheldon and Mrs Mainwaring
