Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


In Year 1 the class teacher is Mrs Laithwaite and the teaching assistant is Mrs Cross. We would like to welcome you to Year 1 and we are certain you will have a fantastic year and build on the knowledge and skills you have learned in Reception.


Our class page will keep you up to date with important information that you need to know and celebrate the good work taking place in class.

Important dates for your diary:

Mrs Laithwaite teaches us every morning, and all day on Monday and Tuesday.

Mrs Beveridge teaches us on Wednesday and Thursday and Mrs O’Neil teaches us on Friday afternoon.

PE will take place on Thursday and Friday but make sure your kit is in school all week!

Homework must be returned to school on Thursday and will be sent home again on Fridays.

Our weekly spelling quiz is on a Friday.

Celebration assembly takes place on a Friday where we will award our Star of the Week and VIP. A text will be sent home if your child has been chosen. On a Friday in Year 1, Teddy will also go home with one lucky child for the weekend.

Please make sure your child brings their reading book to school every day.


The theme for Autumn 1 is ‘This is me!’

The Year 1 yearly overview and this half terms theme overview can be found in the folder below.

Each half term we will create a homework map for you to choose an activity to complete with your child at home. A copy of the homework map can also be found in the folder below. Please return any models, pictures and other work to school on a Thursday so we can display it in class!


Please keep checking our page to see updates of our super work in Year 1!

If you have any questions about Year 1, please contact Mrs Laithwaite, class teacher.
