Year 1

Welcome to the Year 1 Class page! Here you can find out what the children have been learning this year.

Please scroll down the page for Home learning information during school closures.

Safeguarding: if you have concerns about the welfare of a child during school closures, please visit our page here:

The children take part in P.E. lessons every Tuesday and Thursday. Children must attend school in their P.E. kit on those days. Homework will be sent out every Tuesday. Children will receive a set of spellings to learn for the following week.

Children are expected to read at home daily. Home reading books will be changed weekly.

Home Learning in case of school closure

We will be posting home learning tasks on this page for our class each week. This will consist of an English, Maths and topic learning task for the week. Additional Maths support, featuring daily lessons including a video tutorial for children and parents, are being posted by White Rose Maths Hub. For more information on this click here.
Children should be reading each day and practising their spellings and times tables using TT Rockstars. We will update the learning expectations each week. If you want to access further free learning, click onto our Home learning tab
