Welcome to Year 1

In the event of school closure/self-isolation...


We are currently providing children with work to take home, to be prepared if families are having to self-isolate or if school closure was to take place.


In Year 1, children will be sent home with some activities for Phonics, Maths, English and Handwriting.


Links to educational websites and other free resources to use at home will also be provided below.


Please also make sure to take time to use the links in the 'Mindfulness and Keeping Active' section below each day.



Please make time to work with your child on their current phonics stage

  • Miss Jade's Group - Phase 3
  • Miss McCallion's Groups - Phase 5


This can be done using the phonics pack that has been sent home along with the Phase resources below or by using the links provided below.

Local Area School Trip


We had a fantastic time exploring our local area this morning. We looked for different features such as bus stops, post boxes, shops, fire station and then ticked them off on our clipboards when we saw them. We took our shopping lists to Morrison's and searched the aisles for the ingredients we needed! We are looking forward to baking cupcakes tomorrow blush
