RIDGEWAY Primary School

Welcome to Year 1     

We are the Excellent Egyptians

Class Routines

Mrs Naylor will be teaching each Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and on alternate Tuesdays. On Monday and alternate Tuesdays Mrs Wilkinson will be teaching. Mrs Gelipter will be the class teaching assistant on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings. Each day we will be learning our Maths and English in the morning, with topic, science, computing, RE and art/DT in the afternoons.

PE will be on Monday and Wednesday so please have a PE kit in school - pumps, white t-shirt, black shorts or joggers. Please ensure all are named and are in a draw string PE bag (we do not have room for rucksacks on the corridor).

Please ensure your child brings a drinks bottle to school each day. Snack each day will be fruit - so children can have the school fruit or bring their own fruit  for morning break each day.

Reading books and bags will be sent home each Monday and should be returned each Thursday (as they were last year). 


 The school homework policy states, Y1 pupils should be reading for 10 minutes 4 times per week, learn spellings and have 1 additional task.

Homework will be set on Seesaw each Friday to be completed by the following Friday and will be spellings and another task.  Reading homework will include  - levelled books from school and Bug Club online books or story books at home.

Children should also try to complete DoodleMaths at home 3 times a week.


Our topic for the first half term is 'Low Tech to High Tech' and will be about how technology has changed in the last 50 years. The children will learn how the telephone and computer have developed over time, how toys have changed and about technology in the home.
