Meet the Staff

Miss Vickers, Mrs Adams and Mrs Hopley support us to be the best we can be and to ‘Enjoy, Respect and Succeed’ when working with our class!


As a member of The Jolly Dodgers class, you will continue on your journey to become a resourceful and resilient learner while exploring the wider world in a fun and exciting way!

  The Year 1 National Curriculum is packed with many new skills for you to learn. Each half term we will take part in different activities to enable you to learn new things and achieve your potential.  We will also take part in enrichment days to bring excitement to your learning. This will include a visit from Samuel Pepys, a visit to Gawthorpe Hall and trips to local parks.


  Finally, we use Class Dojo to send pictures and messages home about what you have been learning and all the fantastic achievements you have made!

We want you to have fun whilst learning. Remember Enjoy, Respect, Succeed!

Our learning so far...



Today we enjoyed a music lesson. We used actions to bring our singing to life!


We have been learning about the Great Fire of London.

It happened a long time ago.

Our big question was: What was the cause of the Great Fire of London?

We had to make a claim, support our claim with evidence and ask questions.

Follow the link to find out about the Great Fire of London. 

This resource took us back in time to the streets of London just before the fire. 


Our working wall.......

Exploring images of long ago. We were curious about what we could see and asked lots of questions about the past.

We had a fabulous day celebrating Roald Dahl!


Rainbow spellings will be assessed every Friday. Please help your child to practise these throughout the week to be ready for the Friday morning test!


It is important to note that your child will be provided with a daily snack. However, children can bring a healthy snack for afternoon playtime such as fruit or vegetables.  We also encourage your child to drink water in class throughout the day. Please provide a plastic bottle filled with water only. Milk is also available upon application.


Children will have a reading book  appropriate to their reading level and a book chosen by themselves to read for pleasure. Accompanying these books are their reading diaries, where you can write comments on their reading daily. Please do listen to your child read on a regular basis. It is important to take time to read to your child too. Your child will also be given many opportunities    throughout the week to listen to, and to read a variety of stories.

By the end of year 1 your child will have taken the National Phonics Screening Check.
