Year One


Welcome to the Year One Class page. Here you will find all of the information you need and it will be updated regularly J In year One the teachers are Miss Marshall Monday-Thursday, and Mrs Smith on a Friday. Mrs Crompton and Miss Griffiths work in Year One too.



PE is now on a Tuesday and a Thursday. Children should come into school on these days wearing their full PE Kit. Children can stay in their kit for the rest of the day if you are happy for them to do so, but they will need suitable shoes for the outdoors.


Water bottles

Children should come into school with a bottle filled with water every day. They will be kept in the classroom so that the children can access it when they need it. Please ensure your child’s water bottle has a name label on it so that the children are not touching or drinking out of each others and spreading germs. If you would like us to put a label on for you just let us

know J



Children will not be bringing books home from school anymore. Your child will have a login for ‘Reading Eggs’ sent home and work will be set on the app each week. A letter will be sent home with the details within the next week. Homework will be set on the app on a Friday and will need to be completed by the following Thursday.
