Welcome to Year 1! We are all really excited to be teaching year 1 and we are looking forward to working with the children and their families this year. During the partial closure period a significant amount of work has been dome on the learning environment  making the classroom engaging and stimulating for the children. Work is also currently being completed on the outdoor learning environment to ensure that this is also an area where we can extend pupils' learning in all weathers. 


We are both passionate and experienced year 1 teachers and together with Mrs D'Andrea and Miss Gibbs we will work hard to support your child to ensure they reach their full potential. 


How can you help your child at home?

• Play lots of sound and listening games with your child.

• Read as much as possible to and with your child.

• Encourage and praise – get them to have a ‘good guess’.

• If your child is struggling to decode a word, help them by encouraging them to say each sound in the word from left to right.

• Blend the sounds by pointing to each one, e.g. /c/ in cat, /p/ in pat, /ng/ in sing, /ee/ in been.

• Discuss the meaning of words if your child does not know what they have read.
