Welcome to Year 1 2023-24: We are the Dolphin class!  


Welcome to the Year 1 class page, where you can keep up to date with all the super learning that is going on in our classroom.

In Year 1, the class teacher is Miss Myers.  Mrs Greenwood also works in our class. 


We have an exciting year planned with some excellent topics and visits!


Summer 1

This half term our topic is 'Our Allotment.' In English, we are beginning read to 'A Year in Percy's Park.' This is a really exciting text, rich with vocabulary!

Things to do at home

Here are some resources to practise at home!


The phonics screening check is near! Here is an overview of what this involves!

2023 - 2024

We have had a fabulous year so far!  

We have enjoyed reading with Year 4!

Year 1 have created a Maths community, where we use our key vocabulary and reasoning skills to discuss and explain different questions.

In Maths, we also love to use concrete resources to bring the questions and number sentences to life! 

This half term we are looking at addition with numbers up to 10!

Within the Woods

What a fantastic day we had in the woods! It was so nice to explore the outdoors freely. We enjoyed the mud the most!

Skipton Castle

We had a super time at Skipton Castle! We couldn't believe we were inside a real life castle with a dungeon! It was an amazing experience to be able to see first-hand the things we have talked about in our History lessons!


We have been observing what changes throughout the seasons! We have looked at how trees change, the weather and the day length!

African Themed Day

We had such an exciting time on our African themed day! We participated in some African drumming, storytelling and dancing with our fantastic visitor. We made tribal masks and clay modelled African village houses. What a fabulous day!
