Year 1 2020-2021

Mrs Kirkham

Year 1 Teacher

Welcome to Y1 in 2021  

We are having a fantastic summer term so far….

Trip on Tuesday 11th May to ‘Bring Yer Wellies’

See the YouTube video at the bottom of the page! A fantastic day- I was so proud of all the children, they were impeccably behaved.

Have a look in the 'What's new area to see our new summer term 1 coverage!

Year 1 has a great team to nurture, educate and support, Mrs Kirkham and Mrs Reed  plus a fantastic group of enthusiastic parents and children.

I'll keep you up-to-date with activities and events on the website and our school Twitter   -  @brindlegregson   and  @Year1BGL



I encourage all my parents to come and chat, before or after school, about any issues or questions you may have.  However if it is urgent and needs prompt action, please get in touch with Mrs Wilkinson in the office.
I'm contactable in person, seesaw app, phone call to the office or my email

We are at the minute supporting parents with 'Remote Learning' if they are off school for COVID-19 linked health issues or a long term sickness.   In year 1 we use Seesaw as a platform for sharing and delivering videos to guide you at home.  We also use zoom to connect with the children on a 1:1 or as a group-I feel it's very important for the children's mental health to keep that contact and conversation with their friends.

Thank you for your co-operation and support.

Mrs Kirkham

Reading during home learning is through Bug Club - a fantastic scheme we have bought in which links with our classroom phonics reading scheme.  The children can read to an adult and complete the bug quizzes before moving onto the next book! Be careful as the bugs need completing before it will let you move on! any issues, let me know.


Year 1 Assessment - KLIPS

KLIPS stands for 'Key Learning Indicators of Performance'.
All the children will working towards these targets over the course of the year.

It is expected that the children are secure in all of these areas by the end of the year. We aim to highlight off all, or as many of these bullet points as possible, throughout the year.
