Y1 Elm

Welcome to the Elm Class Page


Teacher: Miss Berry 

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Grave 


We are a Year 1 class at St James Church School. 


Currently the children arrive at school between 8:40 and 8:55 and home time is at 3:05.

Please drop off and pick up your child at the back external door.



This term the children will be doing PE on a Wednesdy morning. Please make sure they have their PE kit in school. This consists of a pair of trainers, black PE shorts and a yellow T-shirt.



Year 1 Homework Expectations  

  • Reading daily – This needs to be a mixture of decodable books that children read to an adult and also picture books that are read to the children. Please ensure children read a minimum of three times a week on Bug Club.

  • Weekly spellings – Each week we will share the new graphemes that the children have learnt in phonics.



Here is the curriculum map for our topic, 'Down at the Bottom of the Garden'.

At St James Church School we use Class Dojo to keep all parents/carers up to date with the fun things happening in each class. Each week we will post something about our exciting week. Feel free to message us with any questions you may have about your child's learning. 🙂

Here are some links to help you support your child with their learning.
