Welcome to Year 1 2021/22
Miss Weir, Mrs Abba and Miss Rose
My name is Miss Weir and I am the class teacher for Year 1 here at St Bedes, here is a little bit of information about our class!
Our PE days this half term are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please come to school dressed in your PE kit, including a white t-shirt and dark coloured leggings/joggers/shorts. You may wear your school jumper over the top of PE kit for colder weather.
Reading is super important in Year 1, we ask that you read with your child every night at home. This is such a vital year and lots of progress is made, especially with reading. Reading books are being sent home with those who have a reading folder. If you don't have a reading folder and would like to purchase one then please speak to Mrs Palmer in the office. We send reading books home with a yellow reading record for you to add a comment at home, and aim to change books on a Friday.
We have recently signed our class onto Times Tables Rockstars, where children can practice their 2s, 5s and 10s, which is what we focus on this year. Please practice at home as this is a fun way to practice times tables which is used all through the school.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at: email@example.com or send me a message on seesaw!

We follow Read Write Inc Phonics scheme, and continue this from Reception. Children read story books in school as part of the programme, and we upload story green words, red words and speedy green words onto Seesaw each week for children to practice at home. This helps them to progress through the book and have a deeper understanding of the words. The reading books that get sent home with children are relevant to their current reading and phonic ability, with a little challenge to build their resilience and determination.
