Welcome to Year 1

Welcome to Jay Class

Our teacher is Mrs Evans and our Teaching Assistant is Miss Cox.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to come and see us! We look forward to working with you and your children.


Reading is a top priority for all children as it underpins all the curriculum areas. By the end of year 1 the national expectation is that children are reading Orange book band books. We as a team want every child to reach that level. But we can’t do this on our own, we need your support! Please read with your child as often as possible, Please help your child by recording their reads in their diary.

Homework and spellings

Homework is given to support and extend your child’s learning and they will need adult support and encouragement in order to complete it. It is important that homework is done every week as each task revisits and consolidates previous learning.

Homework will be given out on Thursdays and should be returned no later than the following Tuesday. It will usually include an English or Maths task which link to the work done in school that week. In addition, children will be given spellings to learn. Spelling tests will take place on Fridays each week.

If you have any problems or are unsure about their homework tasks, we are here to help.

Times Tables Rock Stars

Times Tables Rock Stars supports the children with their understanding and recall of multiplication and division facts. It is an exciting resource provided by school to engage and interest pupils. Use it at home on your laptop or tablet as much as you can. We have stuck your child’s login in their reading diaries.


This term PE will take place on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please make sure children have names in both their kit and uniforms. The kit consists of plimsolls or trainers, black shorts and a white t-shirt. PE kits can be kept in school until half term when they will be sent home. When the weather gets colder please ensure your child has leggings or jogging bottoms and a fleece or hoodie.
