I can't believe the time has come for you to move to Year 1. It has been a brilliant and unique year. 

The Year 1 teachers Mrs Taylor, Miss Lockham and Mrs Horridge have been busy creating virtual tours for you to see your new classroom. You can view them on Google Classroom. There is also a presentation with information about Year 1.

Online Resources


I have put together a list of websites and videos to aid your child's learning at home. 


  • Bug Club - it is extremely important to continue reading daily with your children. The username and password is in their reading diary. 


  • Phonics Play. There are some free games to choose from. Phase 2 and 3 will be suitable for Reception at the moment. You can use the free games to practice segmenting, blending and sound recognition. 


  • YouTube videos to watch are  Phonics Song Jolly Phonics Song Phonics – Tricky Words 2 Phonics – Tricky Words 3 Phonics - ABC Rap Maths - Count to 20  Maths - 2D Shapes Maths – 3D Shapes


  • CBeeBies have some great programs which will help children learn in a fun way Science and Investigation Phonics and Reading Being Creative with junk Geography and new places


  • YouTube has many Just Dance and Cosmic Kids videos which are brilliant to keep your children moving.


  • Topmarks website has lots of fun games to play to help number recognition, number ordering, measure, counting etc. Don’t forget to ask your child “How do you know that?” this will help them to use their maths knowledge in a different way.




Here a link to a video made by Miss Curbishley, which gives you ideas on how to help support your child with phonics at home. These activities are play based and that is how we believe children learn best. 


I understand that phonics is very complicated and the pronunciation of sounds can be quite difficult to master. The follow video is an excellent tool to help adults and children say the sounds correctly, which is crucial for reading and writing. 


Please contact a member of the team if you have any questions about phonics. 

How to say the sounds just like us!


The order of the sounds in the video are as follows...
