Wooden Hill Primary and Nursery School

Year 1

Welcome to Year One!  

The children have settled well into their new Year 1 class and have adapted well to the change in their teaching and learnings from Reception. Well done! 

Our PE days are going to be on Monday and Friday this year. Please send your child into school every Thursday and Friday in their PE kits. We kindly ask that they come to school dressed appropriately for the weather jogging bottoms and jumpers in the winter, short and t shirts in the summer. Please remember that children should not be wearing jewellery on these days.  

Classroom support 

We are very lucky to have wonderful support staff in each classroom this year.  

In Beaver class, we have Mrs Martin and Mrs Owen. In Otter class, we have Mrs Gough and Mrs Skinner. 


We kindly ask that you read as often as possible using your child’s book bag book or online Oxford owl storybook. The more children read, the more they read with fluency and expression which in turn supports your child’s understanding of books. 

Please can children bring their reading books into school every day

Each child will find a numbots and spelling shed password in their reading records. Please take some time to play Numbots to develop your child’s mental maths skills or play games on spelling shed. 


Please remember that we are here to support you and your child either by email or person. Our year group emails is as follows 

We can't wait to have a happy and successful year with your children.   

Mrs Saraff, Mrs Steel and Mrs Summerfield
