Welcome to Year 1

Hello and welcome to Year 1. I am really pleased that I am going to be your teacher again. As you know my name is Mrs Grayson. It has been a long time since I have taught in Year 1 but I am really looking forward to the change and the challenge.

In Year 1 we will have Mrs Neshad working with us for four mornings a week.

Everyday we will do English, Maths, Phonics, Guided Reading and dough disco. We will cover Science, History, Geography, Art and handwriting too. Most of all we will have lots of fun whilst we are learning.

Reading Books

In the next few weeks we will give out reading books. Please spend time reading these with your child and asking them questions about the book. When they have read the book, send it back into school and children must put it in the book basket. I will check their understanding and change the book.


Our PE day is Friday. Children need an outdoor kit in school by Friday 11th September. This should include black or navy joggers/leggings, pale blue t shirt and trainers. Please note this kit will be kept in school until October half term.

Home Learning

Over the next few weeks all the children will be signed up to ‘Doodle Maths’ and ‘Spelling Shed’. Home learning tasks will be set on these. I will write to you when these have been set up with more information.

I am really looking forward to working with the children and yourselves again, I feel very privileged that I get to teach this class again. If you have any queries or concerns then please either contact me through the office and I will ring you back or send me an email which the office will pass on. I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Here’s to a fantastic year,

Mrs Grayson.
