Welcome to Year 1
We would like to take the opportunity to welcome you all to Year 1! We are looking forward to working together so that we can have a very exciting and productive year. We hope that your children enjoy the new challenges and approaches to learning that Year 1 has to offer!
The Year 1 Team
The Year 1 is comprised of two Year 1 classes: Holly Class and Oak Class. Our teachers are Miss Paterson and Mrs Shah. We are very lucky to have several Teaching Assistants; Mrs G Bi, Mrs Ahmed, Mrs A Bi, Miss Clegg and Miss Hudson who support the children with their learning.
Year 1 Curriculum
Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help students master the times tables! Children have the opportunity to practise multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12 through this engaging website. Teachers can set multiplication challenges suitable for your child and monitor the progress your child makes.
Reading Planet is an exciting reading scheme, which will help your child develop reading skills and build a lifelong love of reading. Your child’s teacher will assign books for your child to read as well as monitor your child’s progress through the quizzes he/she completes linked to the books read.
