Year 1

Welcome to the Summer Term! We can't quite believe that we are already into our final 2 terms of this academic year. We have some interesting topics to develop learning throughout the year and looking forward to getting our teeth into our new learning. 


Term 5 reminders ...

* PE days are a Monday and Thursday 

* Please ensure that your child is reading and then rereading for fluency and understanding their reading books at home. Reading regularly at home is crucial for reading development. Thank you for your support. 

* Home learning will be uploaded on a Thursday. 


Thank you

Dear Year One Families, 


A great big welcome to you all from the Year One team! We have been so impressed with the children and how well they have settled into their new routines. They approach all their new learning with enthusiasm and smiles. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate in speaking to us! 


Just a few things to get you started in Year 1. 


Mrs Sykes will be teaching in class on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Mrs Warman will be in class teaching on Thursday and Friday. We have 2 fantastic teaching assistants, Mrs Smith (Monday and Wednesday) and Mrs Highmore (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday). 


PE is on Tuesday and Thursday. Children need to come to school in their PE uniform on Tuesday and Thursday. Full school uniform needs to be worn on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Here is a link to the uniform policy... Uniform | St Patrick's Catholic Primary School (


Children need to bring their water bottle and reading book into class each morning. Their water bottle is in the classroom and so always available if they need a drink. They will keep coats and lunch boxes in their locker for the day. 


We will be sending home their reading book each day, it is important that your child gets the opportunity to read and reread the book throughout the week. Please see the reading tab below for some reading ideas to support you at home! 


We are really looking forward to getting to know you all over the coming weeks and have had such a wonderful first week with you all. 


Thank you, 

Mrs Sykes and Mrs Warman 



As a school we have been taking part in the English Hub Project. We follow the scheme 'Letters and Sounds' to teach phonics and we are using the 'Big Cats' reading scheme. 

Below is the long term maths plan for this year. Please be aware that this may be adapted as teachers respond to the children's needs as the year progresses.
