Welcome to Year 1’s page where you can find out about all the exciting things that we get up to!

The Year 1 class is taught by myself Mrs Rennocks and Mrs Malkin with support from Mrs Robinson, Mrs Lee, Mrs Kelly and Mrs Parry

Our Spring term is  'Memory Box'. This is a history led theme which will see us explore changes within living memory. The children will be finding out how homes, schools and toys have changed since the time of their grandparents.

The summer term theme is “Enchanted Woodlands

We will compare the differences between our English woodlands and the Daintree Rainforest in Australia.

General Information

P.E Kit

Your child’s P.E day is Thursday. Please can we ask that all children have an outdoor P.E kit in school at all times as all P.E sessions will be outside. 

Outdoor learning

Outdoor learning will be held on Tuesdays. Please ensure that children have wellies and waterproof clothing in school.


Please can you ensure your child has a coat in school each day in case of rain. We do encourage the children to use our outdoor learning space and we would hate for them to miss out. Can I also ask that all items of clothes are named so that any lost property can be returned.


Daily reading

A homework task set on Seesaw fortnightly

Complete one book and quiz per week on Rising stars

A weekly Mathletics task

Reading Books

Please ensure that reading books are brought in on a daily basis with their reading diary. An adult will read with your child twice a week and this will be recorded in their diary. 

If your child's book is ready to be changed simply add a star in their diary and we can then change this for them when it is their turn to read with an adult.

Water bottles and snacks

Your child has access to fruit each day which is supplied by the school. However, if you choose to send in a healthy snack that is absolutely fine. The children will eat their snack during their playtime so please ensure it is something suitable.  Please can you also ensure that you bring a water bottle in each day. The children can also refill this throughout the day.


As you are aware we have an online booking system for lunches, this must be done from home please.


This is where we will communicate with you the most. There is an app which is available to download for free and this is the most efficient way to contact us if needed.  We also post pictures of our activities in Year 1 on the class story page.

Many thanks 

Mrs Rennocks & Mrs Malkin
