Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

We are excited to welcome the children into Year 1 – it has been lovely to hear all of the things they have been doing over the summer. We cannot wait to begin their journey through this academic year, helping them to learn lots of new things and becoming more independent as they go! Throughout their time in Year 1 the children will make an outstanding amount of progress and we look forward to sharing this with you as parents.

Our Team

The two classes in Year 1 are: 1EB and 1GH.

1EB: Your teacher is Mrs Burrows who is supported by your super teaching assistant Mrs Fisher.

1GH: Your teacher is Miss Holmes, who is wonderfully supported by Mr Brough.

Useful information

PE: Every Monday afternoon. Come to the academy in the correct PE kit.

Home Learning:

Home learning is given out on Friday and to be handed in the following Wednesday. We would really appreciate your support with filling in your child’s homework as it will help them to thrive across the year. We also recommend that you read with your child for at least 5 minutes a day and write a comment in the reading record.

Parent Partnership

We believe that working together is in the best interests of the child and we encourage parent-teacher partnerships by having an open door policy. You may contact us in three ways:

  1. Wait at the end of the day until the whole class have been dismissed.
  2. Phone the office to make an appointment.
  3. Email

Your Teachers’ Favourite Books

Miss Gardner – Peace at Last (Jill Murphy)

The hour is late and Mr Bear is tired. But he just can’t sleep – however hard he tries, all he can hear are the noises in the house. SNORE, SNORE goes Mrs Bear. TICK-TOCK, TICK-TOCK goes the clock. Will he ever be able to find peace at last?

Miss Holmes- Stickman (Julia Donaldson)

“Stick Man lives in the family tree With his Stick Lady Love and their stick children three.” But it’s dangerous being a Stick Man. A dog wants to play with him, a swan builds her nest with him. He even ends up on a fire! Will he ever get back to the family tree?

We hope that you find the information that we have shared on our class page useful, but if you have any questions or would like to speak to a member of our team, please email and a Year 1 teacher will be in touch!
