Year 1

Welcome back, we hope you had a great half term break. We are now in the last couple of weeks of online learning and will be back in the classroom soon. Please keep working with your child as it will help to ease them back into school life.

Welcome 1T and 1/2H


1T - Mrs Tite and Miss Brennan, 1/2H - Miss Harris and Mrs Pitt

Here are some Children's University activities if you would like to do any of them. Please email Miss Harris if you would like more information about signing your child up for it.

Fantastic Work


Really proud of those from 1/2H who are joining our zoom lessons - Katie, Lottie, Amelia, Mimee, Tyler, Joseph and Teagan. Extra Dojos for you when we get back to school. Keep it up :) Special mention goes to Amelia, Katie and Lottie who have attended every zoom meeting. And also to Preston, Teagan, Mimee and Jack for excellent work and attendance. 


Great job to all of 1T who have participated in our daily Zoom lessons, you've all worked really hard during our sessions this week - Alfie, Erin B, Arthur-Jack, Jamie, Dallas, Ellis H, Yussur, Ellis R, Evie-Rae, Violet, Winnie-Jo and Mary-Eloise. It is lovely to see so many of you engaging. Special mention goes to Erin B, Arthur-Jack, Yussur, Ellis R, Violet, Evie-Rae and Mary-Eloise who have attended every Zoom lesson.

Reading and Spellings

Please use Oxford Owl to keep up to date with reading. Please log in using pvsy1/2 as the username and year1/2 as the password. Then choose 'My ebooks'.


Please continue to practise your child's spellings daily. If you no longer have a copy of the booklet, they can be found further down the page.

Spellings year 1

Spellings are in line with the rest of the school. Turn learning into a game, have fun with them. See if they can use the words in sentences. Repeated practice and use is a great way to learn them, and for your children to feel confident with them.


The theme for a lot of our spellings at the moment is alien words - getting the children to recognise key sounds for phonics :)

We will also be introducing non-fiction texts for the children to look at and have a go at writing.
