       Welcome to Year One's Class Page



Hello everyone,

We hope you are all well and staying safe. From the 20th of April we will be giving weekly guidelines for home learning on this web page for mathsEnglish and science. If you are not on our Facebook page (Shade Leavers 2025) you shouldn't be missing anything important.

Wishing you all a happy Easter

  • If you are missing your reading books you can get access to Collin's Big Cat books and activities here:

Further Links:

Directed drawing link - There are countless games and activities linked to all parts of the curriculum on here (if you have lost your child's login then please get in contact and I will send their details over as soon as I can). - These are FANTASTIC home learning packs (the best I have seen!). They are split into weeks and have lots of maths/reading/writing activities and open ended projects for Year 1 to get their teeth stuck into. - There are a range of home learning packs for free on Classroom Secrets. We use Classroom Secrets in our Maths lessons so children will be familiar with the format (printing may be required). Twinkl has released a range of free resources to support with school closures

Year One is taught by Mrs Aaron on Monday, Tuesday and Friday and by Mrs Ford on Wednesday and Thursday. Miss Marshall and Miss Walters are with the class each day.

Spring has sprung!


As you can see from our Twitter feed, Year 1 have been very busy with Miss Norman.  We are loving our Moon Zoom topic and have been helping Beegu to make and find friends.

We cannot wait to show you all our fantastic work at Parents Evening.


Skipton Castle and other news!

We have been very busy since Christmas learning about castles.  As you can see from our Twitter photos below, we had a fabulous day!  There are more than a few of us who would have loved to be a medieval knight.

A big thank you to Mrs Townend who has been teaching us dance for the last 9 weeks.  We are sure you were as impressed as Mrs Aaron when you came to see us.



Year 1 had a wonderful time at Eureka! learning about our bodies.
