St Michael's Primary School

Together we achieve

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 


Lions - Mrs Houghton & Mrs Scholes

Tigers - Ms Potts & Mrs Stevens 

Year 1 P.E. sessions this term (Term 6) are on Tuesdays and Fridays.    


Children come to school in their school PE kit 

(Plain white t-shirt, trainers or pumps, school jumper and black shorts/leggings/tracksuit bottoms).


For safety, please remove/cover any earrings.


Please inform your child's class teacher if they cannot do P.E.

Book Bags: Your child is often given information and work to bring home which we ask them to carry in their Book Bags. Please check these regularly so avoid missing any additional information/ letters/ leaflets etc. Thank you.

Below are documents containing relevant information for each term. Please check these regularly as we will update curriculum information termly. Please do speak with the team if you have any queries.

In year 1 we follow the Read, Write Inc letter formation patterns. This means that children learn to form letters using particular phrases to help them e.g. 'all around the apple and down the leaf'. We do not encourage children to join their handwriting at this stage in their schooling as it helps with clarity as they develop later in KS1.

Phonics Home Reading Books

Please note that every child will receive story books to read at home. Due to the cycle of each teaching phase, children will not always change their phonics books on the same day as another group. The cycles run on a daily, three day or 5 day unit. Please enjoy revisiting and reading these books alongside your child.
