Welcome to Y1 Grey Rabbits!

Class Teachers: Miss Casey and Mrs Maley

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Nolan

We’re very excited for the year we have ahead of us here in the Grey Rabbits, and look forward to working together with you and your child for a happy and successful year 21!


Mrs Maley will teach the class Monday and Tuesday; Miss Casey will teach the class Thursday and Friday, and both teachers will be in class on Wednesday. Mrs Nolan will be supporting our learning all week.




Class webpage

Here on our class page you will our Curriculum map which shows what we will be learning about throughout the year, as well as a section about each half term. Our page will be regularly updated each half term with information and photographs to show you the exciting things we have been learning about.



Reading will link to Read Write Inc. Home reading books can be accessed online from the Oxford Owl website (see information handed out for login details.)

Once your child can confidently read the book they have been practising in class, they will bring a slip home to inform you which book they should be reading at home from the website.

Children will also bring home a ‘book to share’ each week, which they will choose from our class library. This book is not for the children to read, but to enjoy listening to and sharing with an adult. This should be returned to school each Monday.





Our P.E sessions will be on Mondays and Thursdays. One session each week will be taught by a specialist coach.

Please ensure children have their P.E kit in for all P.E sessions and warm clothes for colder days.

Please provide a note / speak to school if your child is unable to do P.E, otherwise children will be expected to join in.

Please cover earrings on the morning of P.E days with plasters if your child is unable to remove earrings for lessons.



Supporting at home


Additional tasks may include handwriting; learning number bonds to 10 and 20; reading and spelling the words from the statutory spelling lists (see handout); counting forwards and backwards to 100 and from different starting points; 1 less and 1 more than given numbers; discussing key vocabulary for the different units of work (this can be found on the ‘What we are learning’ section of our class page.                        




Toast will be available every morning break time for your child to have as a snack. This will be 20p per day/ £1 per week.



If you have any concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to contact the school office to discuss this.

Thank you for your on-going support
