Year One

Welcome to Year One

Mrs Woodhead, Mrs Merrygold, Miss Hazlehurst, Miss McGrory, Miss Shaw and Miss Parkin would like to welcome you to our Year 1 page, here you’ll find information about the school diary and PE kit, as well any homework we may ask you to complete.


In Year One we cover 6 fantastic units of learning:

Autumn 1: How have toys changed over the years?

Autumn 2: What do I know about the UK and where I live?

Spring 1: Why do we still talk about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole?

Spring 2: Why are some places in the world always hot and others cold?

Summer 1: Why do we have castles?

Summer 2: Why is Cleethorpes different to Edwinstowe?

As teachers we do our absolute best to make these as exciting as possible, and if there is anything that you can offer that you think will help, please pop in and have a chat with one of us.

School Diary

Again this year, pupils will be receiving a new school diary. This will be complete with important school information and can be used as a point of contact between parents and teachers. These diaries will be checked on a weekly basis. It is therefore the children’s responsibility to have them in school every day. Please comment on the reading children are doing at home.

Reading is fundamental.  In fact, it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be. Reading develops the brain, provides a window into the world around you and helps you do better in all school subjects. We recommend that children are heard read daily and children can change their reading books when they need to.

Physical Education


PE will be taught twice a week by Miss Kemp the sports coach, sessions will be on a Wednesday and Friday.


PE kit should include:

  • White T-shirt
  • Navy or black shorts (indoor PE)
  • Plimsolls/trainers
  • Navy or black tracksuit top and bottoms (for colder weather)

Please ensure all PE and uniform (even shoes) are labelled clearly, this helps save time, confusion and will hopefully mean items do not get lost.
