Year 1 and Year 2

        Welcome to Key Stage 1

Year 1 and 2 class teachers are: Mrs Pokora, Miss Dale, Mrs Brown and Mrs Blake and they are supported by teaching assistants Miss Barlow, Mrs Stevens, Mrs Ashley, Mrs Hyson, Mrs Dreher and Miss Robinson.

Welcome to the new school year and Key Stage 1! We hope you have had a lovely summer.  We have been planning lots of exciting learning activities in Key Stage 1 and we’re looking forward to the new term.


During the first week the children will be learning about the author Emily Gravett and we will be taking part in lots of activities linked to the book ‘Tidy’.



Our topic for the first half term will be ‘An Island Home’. The children will learn about life and the environment on the fictional island of Struay/Coll.  Struay is based on the real Scottish island of Coll. 

If you have objects, materials or books you think would help us with this topic please bring them in to school, we’d love to see them!


Reading and Homework

The children’s new reading books and diaries will be sent home during the first week.  We encourage as much home reading as possible to support the children’s learning; even 5 minutes can make a real difference. Please could you record in the diary when your child has read at home and send all books back into school everyday.


 If you have any further questions or would like any further information about Key Stage 1, please do not hesitate to get in touch. 


We look forward to an enjoyable and successful year!
