Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 2023/2024


We are Windsor Class and we cannot wait to share our learning ๐Ÿ‘‘




Welcome to Year 1

Children in Year 1 will have two teachers this year. Mrs Morgan will be teaching on a Monday and a Tuesday, Mrs Turton will teach on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Mrs Hickling will also be with us on a Monday morning and a Tuesday morning.

Reading Records

The reading records are to help children develop a habit of reading. The children will bring home a levelled book from school that is in-line with our phonics scheme and also a ‘reading for pleasure’ book that is appropriate for their reading level. The levelled books from school are useful to track progress of children's reading fluency and comprehension. We are aiming for each child to read at home with an adult at least four times each week - please record this in the reading diary.

Physical Education
Year 1 have PE on Friday mornings. Children can wear their PE kit to school on this day.


Forest School

Forest School sessions will take place on a Thursday afternoon with Mrs Rains this half term. Children can come to school in their forest school clothes on this day. Please ensure they also bring a named pair of wellies to school.

We are so excited for the year ahead! If you do have any queries or concerns please do catch us on the school playground or contact the school office.

Best wishes,

Mrs Morgan and Mrs Turton
