Year 1

Welcome to the Year 1 Homepage.
Mrs Stancombe and Miss Rees are very excited to welcome back all of our Year Ones for a new and exciting term. Please see the Topic Web below for an overview of what the year one children will be learning in Spring Term.
As usual, your child will be bringing home reading books once a week and these are changed weekly. Please aim to read every day, even if it is only a few pages, and record to say that you have done so in their yellow reading record. Reading is the key to unlocking all learning! Each time a child reads 5 times in one week they earn a point towards their next reading award. We aim to listen to your child read at least twice a week in school (through Guided Reading sessions and listening to them on a one to one basis).
This term P.E. will take place on a Wednesday afternoon for both 1R and 1S and will be taught by the Montague Academy. Please bring your child to school in full P.E. kit on Wednesdays, appropriately dressed for the season. They will wear their kit all day so no need for a change of clothes.
Please ensure your child has a named water bottle in school at all times as well as a named pair of wellies and a coat in school every day. We will be venturing out in all weathers! Please make sure all items of uniform are named (especially jumpers) as unnamed items cannot be returned to their rightful owners and we had a lot of lost property last term!
Thank you for your cooperation and support! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask us at the school gates (wearing a mask of course!) or by emailing
We look forward to an exciting new year of learning,
Mrs Stancombe and Miss Rees
