Welcome to Year 1 - Key Stage 1 (KS1)

The Year 1 Team


Year 1 will be working closely with Reception as we cover gaps in the EYFS provision due to the lockdown and the prolonged school closure.  As the year progresses and children develop there will be a gradually ongoing transition whereby Year 1 children will be mainly based in the Year 1 classroom and start to work more closely with Year 2 and the KS1 team.

Miss McCauley is the lead teacher for Year 1.  Particularly during the autumn term the children will interact with all adults in the Year 1 and Reception Team.

Communication with the Team

  • Always maintain 2m social distancing when talking to members of staff.
  • Face masks must be worn if entering the classroom.
  • Morning communications when children arrive must be brief (teachers are busy starting lessons). If needed, hand over a written note to provide more detail and we can phone you during the day.
  • Teachers are usually available at the end of each day for a short chat if needed.
  • Alternatively send an email to and this will be forwarded to the Miss McCauley.


  • Water bottle (named)
  • PE kit stays in school every day
  • Book bag

All other resources are provided by school


Please refer to the table below for the homework this term.

Reading - It is expected that your child reads at home daily for at least 10 minutes with an adult.  Due to COVID-19 restrictions, children are able to change their reading books in school once a week.  Re-reading a book several times, becoming familiar with tricky words in a book and asking questions to develop reading comprehension skills can be useful.
