Year 1

Stars of the Week!

Welcome back Year 1!


We are so happy to have you all back in school and to start our Year 1 journey! It has been fantastic to see all your smiling faces arriving at school this week ready to learn. 


This half term we are kicking off with our 'Giants!' topic. As part of this we will be looking at the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. Your child will learn to re-tell this story using 'Talk 4 Writing' actions and pictures to support them and will be writing instructions for 'Giant's Soup'. We also have a story-telling workshop planned for October in partnership with Temple Newsam - more information to follow on this.


Children will be choosing their own reading books to take home this term and will also have access to online reading and phonics resources through Bug Club (please see the link below). Please share a story or read with your child three times a week and ensure your child brings their book bag with them to school each day. 


School times for Year 1:-

Start 8.50am

Finish 3.10pm. 

Children should line up in classes on the Year 1/2 playground and wait to be collected by their teacher in the morning. The class teacher will see your child out to meet you on an afternoon.
