Year 1 2021 - 2022

Mrs Jessop

Welcome to Year 1

Our mission Statement

Together as God's children, we will love, learn, grow, inspire. Let your light shine. 

What a great start Year 1 had. They were very busy during the first term. The children have been working hard on their sounds and are progressing well. They were very excited when the class guinea pigs arrived and they have been named Chip and Fluffy. The children help feed them everyday and if they get 25 dojo's then can get to hold them. They had fun preparing for the Nativity play and we hope all our parents enjoyed the video which was sent home. 


This term the children have been working hard again with their phonics and reading. The children thoroughly enjoyed our History topic on toys and they enjoyed comparing their toys with the toys that their parents and grandparents played with. Our current Geography topic is about the four countries of the UK and especially London. They have really enjoyed finding out about the London landmarks and making a structure of London Bridge. 


Our Year 1 team is..

Miss Boylan (Class teacher)

Mrs Jessop (KS1 Lead)

Miss Barnes (Teaching assistant)

Mr Austick (Teaching assistant)

Mrs Shaw (PPA cover Wednesday )



Our PE days this half term is Tuesday with Mr Thompson where we will be covering multi skills and on a Tuesday with Manchester United.


Please send in your childs reading book each day. Reading books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and a Friday.

Thanks you for your continued support. 



I have copied some links that are either good games or resources. I will update these as I find them:

Top Marks is a good website for Maths resources and games

This game would be good for practising number bonds, halving and doubling

BBC bitesize has some good resources for all subject areas, especially Science and Topic work.
