Year 1

Welcome to Finch Class

In Year One, we have lots of fun learning together. Our class teachers are Mrs Thomas (Monday, Thursday and Friday) and Mrs Gridley (Tuesday and Wednesday). We are a very friendly team and will be happy to help you and your child in any way that we can.

Curriculum newsletter


We teach phonics as a discrete lesson to help the children become secure with the letter names and sounds, enabling them to progress with their reading and spelling. For this, we use a scheme called bug club. Your child will have their own log in details so that you can access e-books and phonics games at home. They also have phonics and keywords word mats in their homework folders to practice reading and spelling regularly at home.
