Welcome to 1CG!


We are Year 1.  Our teachers are Mrs Clements and Mrs Gray.  Our teaching assistants are Miss Kennedy and Mrs Clarke.  Our care assistant is Mrs Barron





Reading is a key aspect in Year 1.  Children take part in RWI sessions everyday where they read to a teacher and to a partner.  We also have whole class guided reading sessions each week.  Children take home books to share with parents/carers at home.  These reading books are changed once a week on a Friday when we have seen a comment in the reading dairy.  Please try to read at least three times a week, more if you can.  It has shown that reading regularly at home helps with children's progress.




In Year 1 children take part in daily phonic sessions.  These sounds then help the children to read and spell.  The sounds are split up into 3 sets.  In Year 1 we are learning sets 2 and 3.  Each session starts off with a speed sounds lesson which focuses on learning a new sound.  After this the children apply what they have learnt by reading a book containing the sounds.  The children also talk about what they have read.  The children then move onto a writing task where they use the sounds learnt to spell words.  The children love these sessions and we have seen fantastic progress being made.  Find below a list of sounds we are leaning in Year 1.



P.E will be on a Wednesday. We will be doing PE outside. Please can children come to school dressed in their FULL PE kit consisting of blue or black shorts or jogging bottoms, white t-shirt and plimsolls or trainers. Children will need to wear their school jumper over the top.  Children are not allowed to wear any jewellery for PE and long hair must be tied back.
