Welcome to Year 1. We hope you enjoy reading about our learning.

Year 1 2018-2019

Welcome to Year 1 at Witton Gilbert Primary School. You will find all you need to know about our class, our routines, what we've been learning, photos of the exciting things we get up to and another other important information.

We are lucky to have many adults helping us in Year 1.

Teacher - Mrs Hodgson

Teaching Assistants - Mrs Bainbridge, Mrs Ford, Mrs Howe & Miss Naylor.

Classroom helpers - Mrs Dodd

If you ever need any information, help, advice or just need to tell us something, please come and see Mrs Hodgson, Mrs Bainbridge or Mrs Ford and we will do our best to help!


A letter will be sent out soon regarding our school changes in reading.

  • Please ensure that you hear your child read at least 3 times a week and sign their organiser, as this will support their learning.
  • Practising their phonics sounds (yellow book) on a regular basis will also support their work in school.


Homework in Year 1 is set on a Friday and due in the following Monday or Tuesday. If you have any problems with completing the homework with your child, please catch us on Monday or send in a note and we will try to sort it out. If children do not complete it by Tuesday, they will have the opportunity to complete it at break time or lunchtime with either Mrs Hodgson or Mrs Ford.



In Autumn 1, our P.E. lesson are on a Wednesday and Friday afternoons. Please make sure P.E. bags come in on a Monday and stay in school all week.

Children should have their house colour t-shirt, shorts and black plimsoles. Please ensure that these are all labelled with your child's name.

Please ensure earrings are removed for P.E. lessons.
