King Edward Primary School and Nursery Excitement + Determination = Success

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning and fun.  Here is some information that we hope you will find useful for this term.  You will find all up to date letters for Year 1 on this page, as well as our knowledge organisers under the topic tabs below.



1SS: Miss Smedley (Full-time).
1MB/AT:  Mrs Biston (Monday-Wednesday class teacher), Mrs Thorley (Thursday-Friday class teacher).


Mrs Wilson, Miss Lilliman, Mrs Crowch (AM) and Mrs Chartwell (PM) are our Year 1 teaching assistants. Mrs Wilson and Miss Lilliman are based across both classes as support throughout the week. 


PE will be on a Tuesday. Children will stay in their PE kit for the whole day. They will not need their usual school uniform for this day.


Children work better if they are well hydrated!  Please could you make sure that your child brings a labelled water bottle to school every day, filled only with water. We would also like to remind you that children should keep toys at home to prevent any upset caused by these things being misplaced.


Hopefully you should all now be connected to Class Dojo. This is used to communicate with you about your child’s achievements and to pass messages on. Please be aware that messages will be replied to during working hours.


Please let us know if you have any issues or concerns – we will always offer a listening ear.  It is best to catch us at the end of the school day or leave a message at the office and we will get back to you as soon as possible to arrange a more suitable time to talk things through.
