Year 1

Welcome to our page all about Year 1!

Our aim is to ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. It has been brilliant to have the children back after our long absence, and thank you for all the hard work you have done with the children. They all seem very excited to be back, and we are delighted to see them again!

In Year 1, we are looking forward to a year of exciting and stimulating learning opportunities for the children. In Cogenhoe there is Mrs Frost (Class Teacher) and Mrs Owen (Teaching Assistant).

In Overstone, there is Mr Reed (Class Teacher) and Miss Bunker (Teaching Assistant).

Mrs Lightfoot will be covering during the week in both Cogenhoe and Overstone so you may see her face at the end of the day!

In Year 1, we try and encourage the children to be even more independent and responsible for their belongings. It is their responsibility to put their reading book in the box every day and to choose a new book if they need to.

Reading in Year 1...

The children will be able to change their reading book on Mondays and Thursdays instead of every day. This is because the school are following COVID-19 guidance on books being quarantined for a given period before being sent to a different home environment. The children will need to bring their reading books /Diary every day as the children will also have lots of opportunities to read and enjoy books throughout the week at school. Please feel free to write any comments in the Diary too


PE will be on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please ensure that on this day your child has their PE kit in school, long hair tied back and earrings out.

Snacks and water bottles

In Year 1, the children still have the opportunity to have a free healthy fruit snack during their morning break. They are also allowed to bring a water bottle into school to have during the day too. Please ensure that their water bottle is named as many of the children have similar bottles.

Finally, please could you ensure that all of your child’s uniform, including P.E and coats are named. This enables the children to be much more independent and responsible for looking after their property.

Thank you!

Year 1 Team.
