Year 1

Welcome to Year 1


Year 1 is taught by Mrs Bartlett.

Supported by Mrs Cook and Mrs Webb.

Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome back to school. It is wonderful having all the children back, they are settling in really well and are excited to be in Year 1. We are looking forward to the year ahead.


Just a few reminders:

1. Children are encouraged to bring the home learning that they completed during lockdown into school.

2. Please provide your child with a small bottle of hand sanitizer and tissues which they can keep on their desk.

3. All reading books from Reception must be returned so that all our colour bands are restocked for this year.

4. Children need to have a book bag in school that is clearly named.


Kind regards,

Mrs 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.
