Year 1

Welcome to Year 1's Class Page Spring 2023

Miss Evans and Ms Mair


Welcome back for Spring 2023! 


Our Curriculum Vehicle this term is 'Magnificent Monarchs'.


We will become history detectives this term by using a range of sources to discover facts about some significant Kings and Queens from history! We will also be looking at the different types of castles and why they were built differently throughout time - we will then get to design and make a castle fit for a monarch. In our English lessons, we will be writing character descriptions of our favourite monarchs (both real and fictional) to develop our descriptive writing.



  • Our school day starts at 8:40am, with our first lesson starting at 8:45.
  • Our school day finishes at 3:20pm.
  • PE is on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please come to school in your PE kit.


As always, if you wish to discuss any aspect of the Year 1 Curriculum or any issues regarding your child please contact the school office to arrange an appointment either by phone or email 


Please check the 'Spring Curriculum' Swirl below to see what Year 1 have been up to as they love to share their learning journey!

Phonics Screening Check - Information for Parents


Please see below for a link to a document explaining the Phonics Screening Check. This is a national check to assess the standard of reading in Year 1 children. This year, it will take place in the week of the 12th of June. We will be holding and information session for parents so we can provide more information and signpost ways of supporting you child at home. 


Past phonics screening check papers are available online should you wish to have a look yourself before this session. Please do not do the 2022 paper with your child, as we will be completing this one in school in the coming weeks.
