Welcome to Year 1

Year 1 is taught by Mrs Bartlett

Welcome to our Spring Term. I trust that you have all had a restful Christmas break.

Our topic for this half term is Toys. Within our history lessons we will be comparing old and new toys. In science we are looking at materials different toys are made from and designing a waterproof coat for Ted! We will be having a toy workshop from Amersham Museum amongst lots of other exciting activities. 


On this page you will find our learning highlights throughout the year, our spelling lists and strategies to support children with their learning. 


Kind regards,

Mrs E. Bartlett

  Sample Phonic assessments can be found under the Parents page, follow the assessment link.


The five key skills taught through our synthetic phonics programme includes the following:

  • Learning the letter sounds – children are taught the 42 main letter sounds. This includes the alphabet sounds as well as digraphs such as sh, th, ai and ue.
  • Learning letter formation – using different multi-sensory methods, children learn how to form and write the letters.
  • Blending – Children are taught how to blend the sounds together to read and write new words.
  • Segmenting – this involves children identifying sounds in words so that they have the best possible start for improving their spelling.
  • Helping children with tricky words – English contains a large number of regularly used words that don’t follow a phonetic patters. This words are learnt separately, alongside children’s acquisition of phonic skills.
