Thank you for visiting our Y1 page. We would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that we will care for and teach your child in the very best way we know how. We will ensure that your child is safe, happy and learning in a fun and engaging way. 

We understand that you are keen to help your child at home and we hope that you find the following information useful. 

Phonics will play a crucial role in helping your child to learn to read and spell. We follow the Read, Write, Inc Phonics and reading programme.  Click here to find out more about what you can do to help. 

To support your child’s reading we would like to encourage you to read as much as possible. Children will recieve a Read, Write, Inc book matching the group they are working in.  They need to become storytellers with their books, which mean that they may have the book for up to a week but this will boost there confidence and make them better readers, also allowing them to gain a greater understanding of the text.   

During this term we will be concentrating on forming our letters correctly. Please see our Cursive handwriting  sheet to support your child with this. We will also be learning our year one Spellings. 


We would like invite you to share any interesting facts, news or exciting events with us in your homework book. We love to see photos, leaflets, maps etc of where your family have been or what your children have been doing.


We are looking forward to sharing your childs learning with you.  

Please feel free to speak to us about anything.
