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. 

This term, our class Christian Value is Compassion.



The children will have PE each Monday afternoon and Tuesday 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 all have a Bug Club login. Please let us know on Class Dojo how often your child reads in a week. This can be on Bug Club, on another app or a book / magazine / newspaper. The more your child reads on Bug Club, the more they will be allocated a higher level book. There is an expectation that the children, where possible, read 3 times per week for a half termly reward. 

Homework will be set weekly - 1 x Maths and 1 x Writing. This will benefit your child's learning inside the classroom such as sentence formation, letter formation, phonics or times table work. We will also send a half termly topic homework - please send photos / videos etc on Class Dojo. 


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


Thanks for for your continued support and I am really looking forward to sharing some special learning moments with you all.
