Year 1 Information
Welcome to Year 1!
We have two classes:
1D - Mr Davidson with Lisa and Fatima
1C - Mrs Cunningham with Sue (M, Tu, W) and Shila (W, T, F)
Please follow the link for our contact details. Please don't hesitate to speak to us. Contact
Our approach throughout the year is to create a bridge to help ease the transition between the child centred ethos of Early Years and the more formal whole class based learning that is established in KS1.
Please see out timetables attached:
1D have PE on Friday and will need their PE kits on this days. Please dress your child in their kit on Friday morning and send their school uniform in so that they can get changed with Morris at the end of their lesson.
1C has PE on Wednesday and need their PE kits on this day. Please dress your child in their kit on Wednesday mornings and send their school uniform in so that they can get changed with Morris at the end of the lesson.
Dance and Music lessons are taught on an alternating basis on Tuesdays. As with PE, when your child has dance please make sure they come to school dressed in their kit.
Please see below for the Dance and Music rota.

Home Learning Books will be sent home on Friday and are to be returned on Tuesday please.
You child will bring home their Reading Practice Book to be celebrated at home on Thursdays and it is essential that this book is returned the following Tuesday. This book is accompanied with a Reading Record. Please complete one entry in this for the period that you have the book at home. This book is 100% decodable and will have already been read three times by your child in their Reading Practice Sessions at school.
You child will also bring home a 'Sharing Book' from the book box and will have the opportunity to change this book on Mondays and Fridays. This is a book to simply share and enjoy. These texts are not decodable but meant as a further celebration for the purpose of reading for pleasure.
Please make sure you child brings in a clearly labelled water bottled each day that has already been filled with water.
Thank you very much.
