Welcome to Year 1!

Hello and Welcome to Year 1's Class Page!
My name is Miss Woodward and I have the privilege of teaching our fantastic Year 1 cohort this year, I will be supported by Mrs Matthews and Miss Kershaw our class teaching assistants.

Miss Cupitt will also teach Year 1 on a Monday afternoon.
We are looking forward to supporting your child's learning and watching them grow and develop every step of the way. 



You will find information about what we are learning, how we will be accessing our learning and also the journey and finished products of our learning. This page will be updated on a regular basis with class news and photographs of what we have been getting up to as well as websites and other resources that will support you, as parents and carers, to develop your child's learning at home too. 

You may also spot our knowledge organisers page, on this page you will find the knowledge organisers that corrospond to the topics that we will be learning about that term. 
These knowledge organisers will allow you to have a better understanding of what we are looking at in Year 1 which will also help you in developing conversations with your child about what they have been doing in school and what they are learning about. 

Whilst your child is in Year 1 please note that if you have any questions, worries or concerns please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff at the start or the end of the day, arrange a meeting or drop me an email.
I am looking forward to working with you to support and help your child in everyway possible to ensure that they let their light shine, reach for the stars and achieve their best.
