Year 1 - Kingfishers

Welcome to Year 1 - Kingfishers!




Welcome to your class page. Mr O'Halloran is your class teacher this year. Miss Roblett is our teaching assistant and she will work with us every day. We are very lucky to have lots of other grown-ups to help us this year with our learning. Miss Fowler supports every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Mrs Matthews helps us on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Curriculum information for the half term

Please read the information below to find out what we will be learning this half term.


In English this half term, we are focusing our work on our topic - superheroes. We will be writing instructions and creating our own comic strips.


In Maths we will be looking at days of the week and months of the year. We will also be covering addition and subtraction up to 20. We will be using part whole models to represent these.

If I have any concerns or problems who can I speak to?

Your first point of contact is your child's class teacher.  Please speak to them to arrange a mutually suitable time to discuss your concerns.  We ask if you'd like to speak to us at the end of the school day you wait for all children to be dismissed so our full attention can be given.
