Year 1

Welcome to Year One with Mrs. S Mann...



Summer 2023


Our Summer term class texts are...

Here at Brickhouse, we feel that the transition between EYFS and KS1 is hugely important to get right! We have seen over the years how settled and more confident children are in their learning, when they can ease into the KS1 formal approach, so over the autumn term children in Year One still have the opportunity to learn through play and explore different provisions set up in the classroom…


During the summer term, children will develop the skills to work independently and use their learning through play to develop phonic and number knowledge.


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

These sessions are  purposeful, active, and importantly FUN!

Supporting Reading...

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.


By reading at home your child will be rewarded daily in school through our reading reward system and you'll earn a Reading dojo! laugh


Home reading books are changed daily if the book has been signed by an adult.

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

- 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
