Year 1

Welcome to Year One!


Teacher – Mrs Maudsley
Teaching Assistant – Mrs Woods

Some useful information…

P.E Days

Our P.E days are Monday and Tuesday. Indoor and outdoor named P.E kits are required.

Homework Diaries

Children should bring their Reading Diary to school every day as they are a useful communication tool.  Oxford Reading Tree books will be sent home one day each week along with a selection of banded fiction and non-fiction books. Please record what your children have read with a comment about how they read and their feelings about the text.

Spellings and Times Tables

Spellings will be started when appropriate during the school year as learning becomes more formalised.  This is usually after the Autumn half term. The spellings will be sent home on a Monday and tested the following Friday.


A learning log of activities which relate to the topic we are covering in school will be sent home at the start of each half term. The activities will include English and Maths tasks and a selection of topic related tasks which children can select from. Children will be given a date for completion of the tasks and the log will be checked at a half way point.

Phonics Screening

If you would like to find out about the screening test which takes place in the summer please visit the government website
