Hedgehog and Squirrel

Welcome to Year 1!

We have an exciting year planned with a range of opportunities ahead to support our learning.  This year we will be learning about the Great Fire of Marlborough and will visit key sites from the fire, and later in the year we will be heading to Bristol Aquarium to consolidate our science topic on animals. Your child’s Year 1 experience also wouldn’t be complete without being a part of the nativity in December.

We will regularly keep in contact by Class Dojo and please feel free to talk to us at the end of the school day.


Our wonderful Year 1 teaching team

Hedgehog – Miss Hues (teacher), Miss Mesme, Mrs O'Shaughnessy and  Miss Haylor-Clements (teaching assistants)

Squirrel – Mrs Webb and Mrs Fry (teachers) and Mrs Cleverley and Miss Cathro (teaching assistants)


PE days

Please send your child in prepared for PE on the following days –

Hedgehog – Tuesday (outdoors) and Friday (indoors)

How to support your child at home:

  • Read with your child using their school reading book - record your reading on 
  • Read bedtime stories
  • Encourage your child to play Numbots to develop their mathematical fluency
  • Watch phonics video links that are sent home weekly on Class Dojo.
