Welcome to Year 1's class page.

Here you will find information about the curriculum, parent workshops and exciting learning your children are experiencing. You will also find a copy of the timetable and topic web attached to this page which is updated regularly. 

Our class Christian Value is Creativity.



The children will have PE each Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning. Please ensure your child has the correct kit for these sessions. They will need a white t-shirt, ever with or without the St John's logo, a pair of navy blue shorts and some black school pumps. 

The children will be sent home with a reading record and reading book. This will be changed as necessary after your child has read. Please ensure the record is signed by a parent or carer as this will be checked before the book is changed. There is an expectation that the children, where possible, read 3 times per week for a small dojo reward. This can be their school book, books from home or reading on bug club. 

Homework will be set half termly. The children will bring home a book which is for their homework to be completed in. This will have a sheet inside which is a homework web with 8 different tasks on. The children are expected to chose and complete 4 of the tasks and this is to be returned before half term. 

Along side this the children will have weekly spellings and occasionally Maths or English which will benefit their learning inside the classroom such as sentence formation, letter formation or times table work. 

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me at school or via class dojo. 


Thanks for for your continued support and I am really looking forward to sharing some special learning moments with your little people

Take a look at some of the exciting learning in Year 1 so far...


we have currently been remote learning but ing but the children are really engaged. We have enjoyed online lessons with White Rose Hub for maths were the children have explored Number bonds, fractions, addition and subtraction, part whole model and much more! 

We have been following the Talk for Writing home learning booklets and have completed work around Sidney the Spider and Pippety Skycap. The children enjoyed answering the quiz around the 2 story's, making models of the spider, exploring different adjectives and writing their own short story. 

We have used coding games on Purple Mash, along with interactive maths games, using the programme for art and science. We have created posters about light and dark in science, and explored some experiments like grow a rainbow. We have created posters about VE Day and completed phonics challenges. 


Below are some pictures from the children's home learning experiences!
