Welcome to Year 1!

This year we have lots of fun, exciting topics and trips to look forward to and we cannot wait to get started!

Miss Crossley

Mrs Gabbitas (Assistant Head teacher) Teaching Y1 Monday and Tuesday

Miss Hughes (Wednesday-Friday)

The Teaching Assistants are:

Ms Reade

Miss Kosatka   

Miss Colnic (Wednesday and Thursday)


Our PE day is Monday.

Please ensure that PE kits are brought in on Monday so the children are properly prepared for the week. These can be left for the half term. At times we may go outside for PE, a warm jacket or jumper may be beneficial during the colder temperatures. Please ensure that all PE kit is labelled clearly with your child’s name, including plimsolls.   

Although we try to make sure kit goes home with the right child, this is sometimes a struggle and misplaced kit can be located in the lost property cupboard on the KS1 corridor.


Home Learning menus are given out at the start of every half term highlighting activities and projects the children can complete based on their current learning. These are optional and not all tasks need to be completed. Children will have the opportunity to share their learning with the rest of their peers in merit assemblies on Fridays. Children can also share their learning on class dojo.  


Our PPA is on a Thursday afternoon. During this time children will be taught by;

Mrs Ahmed and Miss Willis

Summer Term

In Summer Term, we will welcome the arrival of the chicks and observe their life cycle watching them develop from eggs to chicks. Also as scientist we will continue to explore the seasons and make observations and comparisons over time. We will make further links with the community and the school governing body by visiting our local area to observe the seasonal changes that have taken place. In addition to this, as part of our RE sequence we will be considering ways in which we show we care for others. As geographers we will explore the UK and make a tourist brochure to inform visitor about the different countries of the UK. To gain inspiration for our art we will be exploring the seaside to create our own costal inspired weather paintings.  As musicians we will be exploring instruments and body percussion further through musical story telling.
