Welcome to Year 1!

We hope you've all had a wonderful Summer holiday and the children are ready to continue their Brook Lodge journey with us in Year 1. It is a big jump from Reception to Year 1, but we are sure that all of the children will settle back into school quickly and continue to thrive in their learning.  


Mrs Gill will teach the class all day Monday and Tuesday, plus a Wednesday morning. Mrs Hollman will be in school on Wednesday and will be teaching on Thursday and Friday. The children will have PE with Mr Seary every Wednesday afternoon. Mrs Kime works within Key Stage 1 from Tuesday to Friday mornings and Mrs Greenall continues to work with the class works all day everyday.

On a Friday afternoon, the children will have the opportunity for ‘Show & Tell’. This is where they can bring in special objects, photographs or certificates from home to share with the class and talk about why they have brought them in. Due to the short amount of time that we have for this within the timetable, each colour team will take it in turns each week. Our timetable for Show and Tell is on the Year 1 door. 

If you have any questions, you can arrange an appointment by contacting the office.


Phonics: Please practise your sounds with your child in preperation for the phonics screening check in June. 

Reading: It is important that the children read daily.  They children will all have their 'Book bag book'  and a RWI book (These will both get changed on a Friday) .  Children who have finished the RWI programme will have a different levelled reading book.  All children should have their reading books and reading records in school daily.  Children who do NOT read a minimum of 3 times within the week will have to 'catch up' on their reading on a Friday morning playtime.  We aim for every child to read to an adult within school at least once a week (this does not count towards their 3 home reads). 

Numbots: It is important that each child practises their Maths skills on Numbots.
