Welcome to Year 1
Miss Lammonby and Miss Christie would like to welcome you to our special Year 1 page. We love all things creative in our class and are enthusiastic about anything from singing and dancing to painting and building! We have been working so hard on our reading, writing and maths since returning to school and we are all making so much progress. We can’t wait to share all of our lovely work with you all.
On this page you can find lots of useful information to help you find out what’s happening in school along with links to useful websites, homework and curriculum information.

At St Gregory’s Primary School, we follow Floppy’s Phonics, a systematic synthetic phonics teaching programme for early reading and writing. We use the interactive phonics lessons and activities to teach children the sounds in words and the code (letters) used to represent them. Year 1 will take part in a daily phonics lesson. Each lesson begins by rapidly revisiting previously taught sounds and codes before being taught the next new sound. They will use the Floppy’s Phonics Sound Books to look for words which contain this new sound and discuss the meaning of any new vocabulary. They will practise forming the new code, reading words and sentences which contain it and write their own independent sentences. This learning will transfer into their daily reading so children can apply and consolidate the new sound and code.
