Year 1 2022 - 2023

Ms Edge

Welcome to Year 1

Class Teacher: Mrs Ward

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Mines, Mrs Strudwick


We are looking forward to working with your child in Year 1.

In English we will be reading some fiction and non-fiction texts. We will be doing a lot of handwriting and writing in different styles and learning a poem for poetry week. There will be an emphasis on ensuring children remember to use the correct punctuation such as, capital letters, full stops, etc. We will also be using adjectives and conjunctions. Reading will be a major focus and we will be moving on quickly with our phonics programme and learning to spell common exception words as well as answering simple comprehension questions.

We will be working hard to developing our understanding of numbers to 100. The children will become much more confident counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and should practise this regularly to ensure they eventually understand times tables.

In foundation subjects, the children will be learning a range of different things such as, animals including humans and materials in Science, where we live in Geography, caring for our world in RE, learning about Purple Mash in Computing and sliding mechanisms in Design and Technology.

P.E. will be on a Tuesday so please make sure that your child has the correct kit which is black pumps, a white t shirt and black shorts or leggings.
