Year 1 2020 - 2021

Miss Colfar

Hello and welcome to your Year 1 class page. 

We're so happy to welcome you back now that school is full repopened, we have a very exciting year ahead. 

Here you will be able to read and find out about all of the different things that we get up to in Year 1. 


Your Year 1 class teacher is Miss Colfar and your teaching assistant is Mrs McMillan.


During the Year 1 school week, children will be doing a daily workout for 20-30 minutes each day. Please ensure that PE kits are in school daily with names on ALL items of clothing. Your child will need their own labelled water bottle in school each day as well.


Phonics homework will be set each Friday on Seesaw giving children the chance to practise sounds from the week that will be tested the following Friday.  Maths homework is set on MyMaths to be completed by the following Tuesday.  Children also have a Spelling Shed log in, there will be weekly spellings assigned so children can play the games to practise their spellings. 


Reading is a very important aspect of learning throughout your child’s school journey. We actively encourage you to read every night with your child. Please send reading bags into school every day along with the reading book which has been sent home.  Children will come home with 2 reading books to suit their ability, they should practise reading these over the course of a week, they will be changed weekly. They will also have 1 book from the class library that is for reading with a grown up as a bedtime story or sharing story. This year, we have introduced the phonics scheme Read Write Inc to our school, which takes place every day. This involves the children working in smaller groups  within their class bubble to support their reading, writing and literacy.

Thank you

Miss Colfar
