Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!



Welcome back everyone; I can’t believe that we have reached the Summer term!

We have lots of fun learning planned for Year 1, which will revolve around our topic of ‘Joseph’s Coat’. We will be reading and discussing the story of Joseph and his Amazing Coat, as well as designing one of our own. We will also be learning some Maypole dances to share with you all. Please have a look at our class topic web which explains in more detail exactly what we will be covering this half-term.


General Information

P.E. is on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon and P.E. kits need to be in school at all times please.

We will continue to visit Smoky Row on Wednesday afternoons.



The most beneficial way in which you can support your child’s learning, is by hearing them read every day. Please try to encourage comprehension skills as well as de-coding skills in the books you share together.


In addition to Phase 5 Phonics, children in Year One have a list of common exception words that they are required to know how to read and spell by the end of the academic year. Please try to support your child at home with learning these.

Common Exception Words:
the, a, do, to, today, of, said, says, are, were, was, is, his, has, I, you, your, they, put, push, pull, full, be, he, she, we, no, go, so, by, my, come, some, here, there, where, love, one, once, ask, friend, school, house and our.


Spellings: your child will have a spelling test every Friday: please help your child to learn their spellings over the course of the week using the Read, Write, Cover sheet.


Our school day starts at 8.50am. Please ensure that your child is in the classroom by this time for registration. Children arriving after this time will be marked in the register as late.


Our Christian value this half-term is ‘Love’.


Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.


Kindest Regards,

Mrs Scott
