Year 1 2023 - 2024
Mrs. Davies is the class teacher in Year 1 on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Mrs Marshall is the class teacher on a Thursday and Friday. Ms. Logan is the teaching assistant in Year 1.
In Year 1 we follow the Key Stage One curriculum. Please see the curriculum newsletter for information about our learning at the moment. For more information, please take a look at the curriculum section of the website.
Your child's learning can be supported by reading every day, learning spellings, learning times tables and completing homework. With reading, spellings and times tables, little and often is the key.
As they did in Reception, children in Year 1 will continue to bring home reading books which match the phonemes they have been taught in phonics teaching sessions. They will be able to read these books by blending the phonemes they already know. They will continue to bring home books that are phonetically plausible until they are confident and secure at Phase 5. At this point they will transfer to our main reading scheme which will support them to develop wider language and comprehension skills.
Children in Year 1 will take the Phonics Screening Test in June 2024. This will be in the week after the Whit holidays. The test must be taken in this week and we do not have any flexibility in dates.
