Year 1

Welcome to our Year One page. The Year One teacher is Mrs Britton supported by Mrs McLeod (teaching assistant). In Year One, we enjoy working together and helping all of our friends. We love using the areas in our classroom, where we get to explore reading, writing, maths and role play. Please visit our page for regular updates and Year One information.

White Rose Maths Home Learning

As schools worldwide close for now in response to COVID-19, you might be wondering how best to help your child or children with their studies at home.

Always happy to help, the White Rose Maths Team has prepared a series of five maths lessons for each year group from Year 1-8. We will be adding five more each week for the next few weeks. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.

Just follow these four easy steps…

  1. Click on the set of lessons for your child’s year group.
  2. Watch the video (either on your own or with your child).
  3. Find a calm space where your child can work for about 20-30 minutes.
  4. Use the video guidance to support your child as they work through a lesson.
