Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Scarlet Class is a Year 1 class of 30 fabulous children with two lovely teachers: Ms Mutter (Monday through Thursday) and Ms Kowalska (Friday).  Crimson Class is a Year 1 class of 30 equally fabulous children with Ms Del Corso as their class teacher. We have a great team of teaching assistants in Year 1: Ms Wilding, Mrs Ruiz, Ms Chapman and Mrs Graham.  We work hard to be kind to each other, respecting our differences and sharing a great learning journey together!

 Our topic is still ‘Carnival of the Animals’, however it has now extend to include ‘Toys from the Past’, where our focus will be History and Design and Technology. We will be learning about toys from the past, how toys have changed over time and which sort of toys are suitable for different age groups of children. We hope to even make our own toys. Wish us luck!

General Information

In Year 1 we love reading and try to read as much as possible. We encourage parents to read regularly with children and to record this in their reading record book. Children are expected to change their own reading book regularly from the colour banded selection in class as often as necessary, so please remember to bring your book bag every day.  Children will also bring home a school library book, which will be changed weekly.

Our PE days are Tuesday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor).  Please keep PE kits in school so we can take advantage of opportunities on other days too.  PE kit consists of: navy blue shorts, white t-shirt, navy blue tracksuit, trainers or plimsolls and spare socks in a draw string bag – remember to name all clothing and bag clearly!

Please provide your child with their own water bottle daily. This is especially important for outdoor PE days, so that we stay healthy and hydrated!  This should be named and brought home daily for cleaning.

If you have any questions about school, please contact the Office by phone, email or in person, or come and find us!
