Year 1

Hello everyone,

We have reached the end of a very long, busy and challenging term. I would just like to express my deepest thanks to you all for your continued support over the past weeks as we returned to school and got back into our everyday routines.


This week, we have had a fabulous week of learning and Easter activities. On Monday, we delivered our Holy Week Liturgy on Palm Sunday, which was wonderful. I am sure you will agree that the children did very well with their loud and clear reading voices, and their wonderful singing. In Maths, we have continued to embed our addition and subtraction knowledge, exploring numbers above 20. In English we have been exploring and writing our own newspaper reports. This week have also made Easter cards. Please check your child's book bag if you have not already found their card.


Parents evening is on Tuesday 27th April, between 1.15pm and 5pm (via Microsoft Teams).  If you require an appointment for parent's evening, please e-mail us on and we will do our best to accommodate your requested time.


Well done to our certificate winners Sienna and Ellouise, and to Dannon who was the class winner of the decorated egg Easter competition. I am very proud of you all.


Finally, we wish you a very holy and happy Easter. We hope it is filled with chocolate, sunshine, smiles and all the things that make you happy. Have a good rest, so that you return on the 19th April full of energy for a busy, but fun-filled Summer Term.


With love,

Miss Brogan & Mrs Thickett x

Please encourage your child to read at home every day. This may be their school reading book, or a book they have chosen. Please use the top tips below to support them with their understanding and comprehension skills.


We would love you to encourage your child to play phonics games at home. These games will consolidate their learning within school, in a fun and practical way. You can find many games on Phonics Play and Topmarks, please click on the links below.

Please use the phonics mats below to work with your child. By the end of Year 1 they are required to know all these sounds, and blend them within words. They are also required to know the tricky words on each mat.

Here are a selection of recommended reads for Year 1 children. Please encourage your child to engage in reading exciting, age appropriate books.


Please enjoy reading these comics at home. They are interesting to read, and link to the phonics sounds that we have been learning at school.



Please find below a knowledge organiser and parent work book for you to use with your child. This will support them with their learning in school, and will help you to gather an understanding of how they are doing with their current maths learning. 


Current maths work is: Addition and Subtraction
