Year 1

Welcome to Miss Ducker’s Class Page 


Year 1


Here you will find lots of information and pictures of the exciting things we have been doing in class!


It will also be updated with class news and links to websites that you may find helpful to support your child's learning.


Don't forget to check Class Dojo for regular updates too!

Ask in class if you need a new parent login.





PE lessons are on Thursdays and Fridays.

Please ensure your child's kit is in school.



Homework will be handed out on a Wednesday and should be returned before or on the following Wednesday.


Reading books

Please ensure your child brings their book to school everyday. The children read everyday in class, an adult will listen to them read at least once a week. If your child's book needs changing, ask them to put it in the basket in class.


Weekly spellings

New sets of spellings will be given out every Friday to be practised for the spelling test the following Friday. Students will be given a list of 10 spellings which include the sounds that we have been practising that week, plus two tricky/common misconception words that we will have learnt that week.


Thank you for your cooperation,

Miss Ducker



Words of the week


Each week we learn a few new words that cannot be phonetically sounded out - these are the common exception words for Year 1. By the end of the Year your child should be able to read these by sight and spell them correctly.
