Year 1 Information

Croeso i Blwyddyn Un
Welcome to Year 1

Dosbarth Gwyrdd: Miss Davies and Miss Owen
Dosbarth Porffor: Miss Sheikholeslami and Mrs Jones



'Where?' is the name of our topic this term. The children will be following our class 'Everywhere Bear' which is linked to the story by Julia Donaldson to learn more about our local area and other places around the world. 


Reading books


To fit with current guidelines and to ensure we are being as safe as we can with changing reading books, this will be the procedure for Foundation Phase ( Reception, Year 1 and Year 2)

Week 1 – Your child will be given a reading activity to complete. These will be set through Seesaw, please ask in class if you require your child's log in details. This will focus on a reading skill, phonics development or spelling. Below there are some links to online reading resources that you can access if you wish to have additional reading during this week. 


Week 2 – Your child will be given a new reading book appropriate to their reading ability. Please can you share the book with your child at home and make a note in their reading record about how they managed with their book.

Books will be sent home on a Friday. The day for returning books will be the following Friday. This will allow bags, books and reading diaries to be quarantined in school before they are handled by Staff.

Staff will be changing the books on a Wednesday/Thursday so we have moved the day for the books to be returned to allow additional days for you to quarantine these at home if you so wish. This will be at your own discretion.

In Year 1 children will need to bring a healthy snack each day. Please can children bring a piece of fruit or vegetable in a sandwich bag or a snack box that is labelled with their name.



Please can your child bring their own water bottle in each day. This needs to be labelled as it is kept in class throughout the day. Juice bottles remain in lunch bags for lunch time only.
