Ladybirds Year 1


We are a friendly and energetic class smiley

Mr Cheetham, Mrs Fairhall and Mrs Keeler are our teachers.



We visit the school Library on a Thursday afternoon.

Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. 

Please make sure your child has a named PE kit in school everyday!

During Term 5 we will be reading a variety of stories, poems and information books about Castles, Princesses, Knights and Dragons! The children will continue to develop their writing skills. The stories we will be reading include: Castles, You Can't Eat a Princess, Night-night, Night, Dragon Stew and The Paper Bag Princess.


Phonics: During Term 5 we will be revising all our Phase 3 & 5 digraphs and Tri-graphs. We will also be busy practising reading both real and 'alien' words, ready for our Phonics Check in June.



Computing: We will be learning some basic coding.


Reading: Children will read with Mr Cheetham  during Guided Reading in class and also individually with Mrs Keeler during the week. They will practice their phonic skills during daily 'Letters and Sounds' phonics lessons.  All children change their reading book regularly and move onto their next 'colour band' when we feel they are ready. Each child has a reading or spelling booklet to practise at home (Mrs Keeler regularly tests the children and then gives them their next booklet to learn).


Please read with your child everyday at home.

It makes such an enormous difference!
