Year 1



Welcome to Year One's Class Page





Welcome back to Our Lady of Lourdes School!


Mrs Kyriacou, Mrs O'Donnell and Mrs Murphy would like to give you a warm welcome to Year 1.  

We hope you've had a restful summer break and we look forward to working with you all this year.


We have lots of exciting topics to cover this half term, including:

*The Animal Kingdom


* Drawing Techniques


We will start the term with continuous provision to allow the children to transition smoothly into Year 1.  We will gradually introduce a more formal school day as we move through the half term.




Here are some other websites that we use in class.

  • Please ensure that all school uniform is clearly labelled with your child's name.  It is very difficult to find lost clothing if items are not named.


  • Ensure your child brings a named bottle of water bottle each day.


  • Please book your child's lunch at home. 


  • PE is on a Wednesday and Thursday - please send your child to school in their PE Kit and suitable footwear for outdoor sports.


Homework is set on a Friday via Teams and it is due back the following Wednesday.



Additional reading at home  


It is important that pupils are using a range of reading skills: recognising key common words; using phonics to sound out; recognising similar rhyming words; using picture clues along with initial letter cues. Pupils should be able to talk about the story showing good understanding. Discuss the characters, setting and events with your child. Ask children to: link the story to events of their own life; predict what might happen next based on events that have already happened; link the title to events; and think of a different ending for the story, for example.


Visit and sign up for free to access lots of online Oxford Reading Tree books. This will be a great resource for extra books at home.


Phonics -  It is important that you help your child to keep practising their recognition of phonemes. This should be done as isolated sounds, but also by recognising them within real and pseudo ('alien') words.  High quality phonics videos and games are accessible through our Espresso Subscription.
