Year 1


We have already had a number of missing jumpers due to no names in clothing.  Please ENSURE all clothes are named and encourage your child to look after their things - put them on their peg or in their tray.

Thank you.

Communication with Teachers and School

If you have any queries, concerns, questions and information before or after school please can we request that you send an email via the year group email, for example if your child has lost or forgotten something.  If there is specific information that you need to share in an emergency or linked to well-being please contact the school office email  or phone 0161 9734149.

This will keep everyone covid safe and limit face to face contact.  Thank you for your understanding and support at this time.

P.E. This term - exploring different ways of moving and finding out what happens to our body when we move.

Week 3

Another busy week for Year 1.

In maths we have been writing numbers 0 to 10 and counting groups of objects.  We have been exploring numbers to ten in words, amounts and using numerals. Please see the rhymes below and help your child have a go at writing these at home.

We have been learning about the human body in Topic.  We have had lots of fun!

Week 3


Do not forget the children in Year 1 have P.E. on Mondays and Tuesdays and will need to come in their P.E. kit.

As we are currently experiencing very warm weather, please ensure your child brings in a water bottle and puts on sun cream in the morning.

Week 2

Again, the children have come in to school brilliantly, all with big smiles on their faces and a positive attitude. Thank you parents for encouraging your children to line up independently and leaving them at the door. This really helps us keep to our staggered times and move the children safely inside. 


Reading Books

Soon your child will receive their school reading book - please continue to read for pleasure as much as you can at home. 

When we start reading with the children (from Mon 14th September), we will be using the book band they were last on in Reception: this is a starting point only and staff will be assessing the children when they read with us and moving them on accordingly. This will take the first couple of weeks to do, so please do not worry if you feel the book is not suitable for your child- staff are assessing and adapting as we go.


Class Fund

Each class has a money box, as in Reception any donations would be gratefully received and put to good use (suggested donation: £1/week).


Once again, thank you for your continued support.


Week 2


Year 1 will be doing P.E. outdoors on Monday afternoons and Tuesday Mornings (Monday P.E. will begin on Monday 14th September)

Please can the children come to school dressed in outdoor P.E. kits on both Monday and Tuesday.  

Please ensure all clothes are named.  See below for winter P.E. kit information.


  • Please can you ensure all school uniform is named.
  • Where possible please can children bring a pencil case into school including the following things; pencil, colours, pencil sharpener and rubber.   This pencil case will then stay in school.
  • Please don't enter the playground too early for your drop off in the morning as this makes it very difficult for all to social distance. 
  • Please arrive on time to pick up your child.  Don't forget on Friday it is 2.25pm. 


Thank you as always for your continued support.


We are so impressed with how well the children are adapting to the new routines in Year One, they have been extremely polite, well mannered and beautifully behaved. Here are some photos of day two: 

What a great first day we have all had in year one.  It has been lovely to meet your children and they all seem to have enjoyed exploring their new classrooms. Here are some photos of the fun we have had:  

At Springfield we care, learn and achieve together
