Thank you to those who were able to attend our Phonics workshop this morning.  This was recorded and is available by clicking the link below for those who missed the session or want to recap.

Phonics workshop


Dear Parents,

Thank you for coming today to our meet the teacher. It was great to see you all and answer any questions that you had. Please feel free to talk to us if you have any problems. We have attached the PowerPoint below in case anyone missed it. We are looking forward to having a very excited rest of the year together. 

Kind regards


Mr Worton-Geer and Mrs Higgs




Dear Parents,

You may be aware, we recently changed phonics schemes and we are now using 'Essential Letters and Sounds'. The children seem to be really enjoying these sessions in class. Tomorrow, I am hoping to send the children home with a log-in card. I have 'assigned' a book that uses the sounds we have been practising in phonics over the past couple of weeks. All children have been assigned the same e-book as all children have had the same phonics teaching. Please could you log in with your children and have a look? I believe, to access the book I have assigned there should be a 'homework' tab once the children log in to their account. Please remember this is a new system for all of us and so I am no expert but I thought I'd give it a go to see if we could get up and running with it in Year 1 sooner rather than later :) Any constructive feedback is more than welcome as we all get used to using the new system! :) The e-books will not replace but will complement the books the children are already bring home from the reading scheme.

Kind regards,

Miss Howes and the Year 1 team :) 



Edit - some changes have now been made to our class timetable. I have uploaded the updated timetable for Spring 1 into the 'Y1 Timetables' section of this page :)

I have also uploaded a draft copy of the 'Toys' homework for this half term. 


Happy New Year!! Our general timetable for the Spring 1 term remains unchanged at the moment :). The children will continue to have drama with Sam Ashford on a Tuesday morning at the same time (09:00 - 09:45). 

Homework for the Spring 1 term will be uploaded before the end of the week and we will also upload our updated curriculum description to the relevant sections of this page. Our topic for this half-term is history based and we will be learning about 'Toys!' 

We look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday for our first day back. 

Miss Howes, Mrs Higgs and Mrs Lowers.
