Year 1 - Gruffalo Class

Year 1 – Gruffalo Class Information




Welcome to Year 1! In Year 1 we help chidlren develop the skills required to become confident, reflective and resilient learners. We give them opportunities to manage their learning and challenge themselves. Independence and responsibility are important parts of this journey - pupils will be required to manage themselves in and around school and we would ask that you challenge them to do them same in their home lives.

The Year 1 Team

Good morning! We hope that you are all keeping well and that you are enjoying your learning at home. If you have any questions, please contact us on and we will do our best to help. We are planning some exciting activities for you to enjoy at home. Remember, your super power is to keep your hands clean so keep washing and chase those germs away.

Message from Mrs Carey and Mrs Aram

We hope that you are keeping safe and well and that you have enjoyed spending additional time together over the past week. Next week, we would ask you to continue working through the activities that we sent home last week in your Home Learning Packs. 


We have also included a short text for your child to read each day. There are questions for them to answer about the text. If the text is too challenging, please read this together and discuss the questions about the story. We will not set online learning for the next two weeks as this is the Easter break from learning. We will, however, keep you updated with any developments as soon as we can. 


We miss you all and are so proud of how brave and kind you all have been during recent weeks.  Take care and stay healthy!

Routines & Notices


P.E. is on Wednesday and Thursday. Pupils will need their P.E. kit.  

Reading & Mathematics

Reading is a vital skill which, when embedded, can enrich writing and understanding. For this reason, it is imperative that we foster a love for reading. You can support at home by reading daily with your child and commenting in their reading records.

Please prepare your child to learn multiplication tables by practicing lots of counting with them: forwards, backwards, missing numbers and writing numbers!


Registration & Dismissal

It is expected that all children arrive between 8:40am – 8:50am and that they line up with their class when the bell goes at 8:50am.

Your child’s class will be dismissed at 3:15. Please allow plenty of space around the door and teacher when collecting your child. If your child is being collected by another family member or friend please write a letter to your child’s teacher.


If you have a question or concern about your child please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s teacher.
