Year One

Hello everyone and welcome to Year One.

In Year One, we have two teachers - Mrs Osborne and Mrs Gore- who share the class.

We have three TAs- Mrs Coulton, Mrs Walton and Mrs Hannah.

I've made our avatars rather glamorous! Can you tell who is who?

End of Year Expectations for Year 1

Here are the end of Year Expectations for Year Ones.

I've also included a list of the common exception spelling words for Year Ones. These are also called red words.


The Christian family … can and should be called a domestic church.        

        It is a community of faith, hope and charity

Catechism of the Catholic Church

The children will learn about what it means to be a member of a family and

to be a member of the school community. They will learn what it means to

belong to the Church family.


They will hear how Jesus’ family took him to the Temple and think about why this was a special occasion. They will learn about some of the celebrations in the Church and why we celebrate these occasions.


At home

You could help your children by:

• discussing the importance of celebrations in our lives

• talking to your child about their baptism

We begin this term full of the joy of the Christmas season which ends for us at the celebration of the Baptism of Jesus on 10th January. On the 2nd February we celebrate the feast of the Presentation of the Lord (Candlemas) when Jesus is recognised as ‘The Light of the World’. We must also remember that each one of us is called to be a ‘light’, an inspiration to those around us.

Spring 1 Topics

Our Topic for this half term is Paws, claws and whiskers! We'll be learning all about animals in Science.
