Our teachers in Year 1 are Miss Carr and Miss Fox.
Learning Support: Mrs Ellis, Mrs Millington, Mrs Clarke and Mrs Moxon.
In Year 1 we aim for a smooth transition from the Early Years curriculum to Key Stage One curriculum. Therefore the Year 1 classroom environments and outdoor provision allow for a balance between adult directed National Curriculum activities and opportunities for pupils to explore their learning independently through the mainly play based continuous provision. We have a number of areas of learning such as numeracy, writing, reading, phonics, small world areas both in our classrooms and outdoors.
Please take a look around our classroom.

Year 1 National Curriculum
The national curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which our teachers have developed exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills. Please access the document below to learn more about what your child will be taught over the next year at St Mary's.
We have launched a new reading scheme to match with our phonics capabilities. This means that we are sending home books similar to those the children have been doing in class that same week.
The Read Write Inc book bag book is targeted at your child's reading ability - they are to read this book independently. Please go over the green/red words at the beginning, to ensure they understand the vocabulary. Ask them questions using the information at the back of the books or ask them to retell the story,
The Oxford Owl book is for shared reading with an adult. This is to help your child with comprehension and fluency with the aim to be reading 90 words a minute by the end of Year 2.
