Swallow Class read Hiding Heidi by Fiona Woodstock. Heidi is the best at hiding: in school, at the playground, or in the park. Heidi‚Äôs friends know how much she loves hiding, so they always let her play and win. But Heidi learns the importance of sharing the limelight with other people and how much more fun it can be when you appreciate what your friends are good at too!  Swallow Class were inspired to play Hide and Seek can you spot them they also were inspired to share some of their favourite activities with each other.

National Curriculum for Year 1


Children will be reading Bug Club books in class and these can also be accessed on-line. Daily reading is essential to support the children across the curriculum.   Children will also be given passwords to Mathletics. 


We recommend that you visit this website, which is full of excellent guidance and resources.


Information about the phonics screening which children in Year 1 take is below.

Cued Articulation

We use a system called Cued Articulation to support our teaching of phonics.  Children quickly become familiar with the signs.  The link below is not wonderful quality, but explains very clearly how it works.
