Hello year 1


My name is Mrs Dudding and I will be your class teacher this year.

In class with me is Miss Young, Miss Kajzi and Miss Nelson. 



Our P.E. day each week is on a Monday with a sports coach and on a Friday

Please come into school on those days wearing an outdoor P.E. kit (tracksuit or leggings and jumper).  You do not need your uniform.



Each day we have a guided reading session. During this time there will be group reading with me and Miss Young, as well as independent reading activities and free reading time. 

Our home reading scheme is based on the Oxford Reading Tree books. Home reading books are changed on Friday but please bring your book bag in every day as I will be reading with you throughout the week.  Along with the reading books being sent home, you will also be sent home a yellow reading record. Please keep these in your book bag with your reading book and send in every day as I will leave a comment in this book when I read with you in school. Comments should also be written in the book when you read at home so that I know you have read.



Each day we have a phonics session based on Letters and Sounds. In phonics we learn and practise saying and writing sounds. We also learn tricky words and develop skills in reading and spelling words. At the end of each half term we assess the sounds and tricky words that have been learnt, as well as the development of reading skills.



Homework is set on the online site - Seesaw. Homework tasks are based around phonics and number practise - such as the times tables. You can also practise your letter sounds and maths skills by playing online games (please see the links below).


Other Information

Please bring in a water bottle each day - these will be sent home at the end of each day. This must be water but you can have juice in your lunchbox.


At the moment only coats, book bags, water bottles and lunch boxes (if you have a packed lunch) can be bought into school.


Every morning I will be waiting on the playground in our zone (3).  Year 1 start at 8:50.  

Morning break time is 10-10:15. 

Lunch time is 12-1 and our class will be eating dinner in the school hall. 

Afternoon break time is 2-2:10.

Year 1 finish school at 3:10.  


Thank you

Mrs Dudding
