Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Fiennes, Da Vinci and Dahl

Welcome to Year 1 smiley


At King Campus in Fiennes Class, our teacher is Miss Higginson and the TA is Mr Ayres. In Da Vinci Class, our teacher is Miss Croxford and our TA is Ms O’Sullivan. At the Kirk Campus, our teacher in Dahl Class is Mrs Francis-Pollin and our TA is Mrs Spencer.


Our Year Leader across both campuses is Miss Higginson. If you have any questions, concerns or queries, please speak to your child’s class teacher or pop a note in their home school diary.



We are looking forward to getting stuck into our new project The Tiger Who Came to Tea! As you can guess from the title, our new project is based around the text ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr. Over the coming weeks we will be exploring the book. All our writing and project work will be based on this culminating to a puppet show, which will be performed to Year R children. After this, we will be moving onto a new project all about Dragons. 


Every Friday, Year One have show and tell. The children are encouraged to bring something from home into school to share with the class.


Home Learning

In Year One, children will be sent home weekly with spellings in their home school diaries to practise at home in preparation for a spelling test every Friday. Please practise these at home with your child.


We highly encourage parents to read with their children at home as this not only helps to develop their reading skills but their enjoyment and pleasure for reading too. With this in mind, children who read 5 times or more at home over the course of the week will receive a bookworm sticker.  If you read with your child at home, simply record it in their home school diaries. Home school diaries get checked every morning.


Our banded book change day is Tuesday and Friday. 


Additionally an updated key word list will be sent home each half term for you to practise with your children at home. Children will be tested regularly at school.



We will have two sessions of PE a week:

King Campus– Monday and Tuesday

Kirk Campus– Tuesday and Wednesday

We will be continuing with the daily run, so please ensure that your child has suitable footwear to participate every day.



Forest school

Fiennes and Da Vinci class will have Forest School (King Campus) on a Thursday morning. Dahl class (Kirk Campus) will have Forest School on a Wednesday morning. Children may come to school dressed in their Forest School clothes and bring their uniform in a named bag. Please check your child's class window for more information on Forest School.


If you have any questions please don't hesitate to catch a year one team member on the door. If you haven't already please download The School App to keep up to date with key information.
