The Year One Team



Year One Staff

Sombrero Class:

Class teacher – Miss Cope

Teaching assistant – Mrs Cressey


Beanie Class:

Class teacher – Mr Murch

Teaching assistant – Mrs Holmes

Mrs Colclough will also be working in year one on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.



Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Please send your child into school wearing their PE kit on these days.


Toast is available to buy daily at a cost of £1 per week. Please send your child’s money into school in a named envelope.



Each child has their own personal logins to access their school reading books electronically at home. 

In addition to this, the children have a school reading book (selected by the class teacher) and a home shared reading book (that they choose themselves) in their reading folder.


It is really important that the children bring their reading folder into school so they can be read with individually and so that staff can change their books each week.


We hope you are all enjoying reading and sharing lots of books together at home and please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the year one team if you have any questions about, or need any support with reading at home or school.


Spring Term One Topic - Searching For Wild Things

This half term we will be learning all about wild animals and other exciting creatures including dinosaurs. We will be reading a story called The Lonely Beast In English and in Science we will be learning to name and classify a range of different animals. In History we will be learning about dinosaurs and finding our more about when and where they lived. In Maths we will be deepening our knowledge of the place value of numbers up to 20.



We know the children have been very busy reading and practising their phonics at home - well Done! From Friday 11th November the children will also be getting maths homework sent home in their folders. We will send maths homework out on a Friday so please return completed homework sheets to school every Friday.


Spelling Books

This half term the children will be receiving a spelling book with spellings to practise at home every week. We will be testing the children each week on the spellings set. Please ensure your child brings their spelling book into school everyday in their reading folder.
