Year 1

Welcome to Year One with Mrs Mann...



Summer 2022


Our Summer term class text is…

Our Spring term class text were…

Here at Brickhouse, we feel that the transition between EYFS and KS1 is vital to get right! We have seen over the years how settled and more confident children have been when the classroom adopted a continuous provision structure of learning. 

In Year One we still encourage and promote the opportunity to learn through play and explore different provisions set up in the classroom…

During the summer term, children work in small focus groups with an adult, we’ll work on key skills to develop and support reading, writing, and mathematics.


Our aim during these sessions is, for every child to gain supportive and guided lessons that are purposeful, active, and importantly FUN!

Supporting Reading...

Reading Planet allows children to read books online, your child will be allocated books suited to their current reading band colour. Using this website is effective to improve, encourage and engage reading at home. (Please find the link further down the page)

Please make sure that home reading books are returned to school regularly to support your child's reading development and fluency. Your child's book will NOT be changed if there is no adult comment in their home reading record.


Home reading books are changed daily.

Phonics is a key priority in Year One; children will be developing their phonics to support their reading as well as their writing, at Brickhouse we feel that phonics is of huge tool that underpins English progress and attainment.


Great tools to support phonics at home:

- PhonicsPlay

- EducationCity

- Reading Planet

- Youtube videos - phonic songs and teaching sounds

- Alphablocks

- Reading signs and labels around the house or out and about

- Writing a shopping list to take to the shops
