Year 1

Year 1 Beaconhill Website Page

Welcome to Year 1!

Year 1 is taught by Mr Shepherd throughout the week and Miss Gallon on Monday and Tuesday afternoons. Our teaching assistant this year is Mr Williamson.

Our mornings start with reading, then Letters and Sounds, guided reading and English. After playtime and snack we do maths.

By lunchtime we have already learnt a lot!

Afternoons begin with calm, mindfulness colouring or handwriting and then we learn the subjects and topics detailed below.

We have P.E on a Wednesday and Friday. We wear tracksuits as we are currently doing P.E outside.

We go to the beach to extend our learning, this year we will be doing some maths, science, history and even some computing at the seaside.

In the first week, we have devised our own class rules and we will try and be mindful of these rules throughout our school day.

Keep checking back to our class page to see what we have been up to.

To find out some ways to support your child at home, please visit our useful links page.

Home Learning


If your child is poorly we do not expect them to engage with home learning. If they are recovering well, or asymptomatic, you may decide that home learning would be appropriate.


If you feel home learning is suitable here are some home learning resources that are suited to Year 1.


YOUR CHILD’S LOGIN DETAILS ARE INSIDE THE FRONT COVER OF THEIR READING RECORD - once logged on select the Resources Box, this will lead you to a page with icons on for BBC Bitesize and Busy Things. There are a range of activities for each subject that are relevant to our curriculum. The Year 1 curriculum overview is on our class webpage.  - Oak National Academy


Please remember it is important to continue to use a pencil and paper and to encourage and  expect good basic skills for example presentation and the use of phonics to spell.

 - Cooking and baking together will give opportunities to use maths in the real world.

 - Keep a daily diary of what you are doing or the weather outside.

 - Design a character for a story, draw them and then describe them.
