Welcome toSt George's C.E. Primary School

Miss Gluch

Welcome to Year 1

May I take this opportunity to welcome you to Year 1. I am looking forward to continuing the children's learning journey. The Year 1 team consists of Miss Gluch and Miss Hilton. We are all looking forward to an exciting year ahead.

In our class we work and play together, helping each other to achieve our very best and following our school rules of ready, respectful and safe. We try really hard to work independently, persevere and aim high! We enjoy learning practically, exploring new topics and having fun!

Year 1 is a transition year as we start the Key Stage 1 National Curriculum, but we aim to make this as smooth as possible.  Year 1 is a mixture of children learning through play and more formal learning which will evolve by the end of the year, so they are prepared for Year 2.

PE Lessons:

Our PE lessons are on Mondays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child come to school in the correct PE uniform on both these days (school jumper, white t-shirt, black shorts/leggings/joggers, trainers or pumps).

Reading Books:

Reading books should be in school everyday as we also read with the children. Please continue to encourage your child to read regularly at home, for 10 minutes daily, and make some time to discuss and ask questions about the text to develop comprehension skills as well as practising their phonics. We would be grateful if you  could please make a note of how your child reads, in their reading diary, each time your child is heard to read by an adult, whether this is a school book, an online book, comic, newspaper or a book of their own.

Our weekly timetable 

Our school day starts at 9am, with children arriving from 8:40am, and finishes at 3:30pm.

We use ClassDojo as our main communication tool. We will share what the children have been learning in class and communicate all class/school-related information with you using this platform. It is essential that you are connected to our class page.


We also use School Spider (which is our website provider) for you to sign up your children to after school clubs and booking a parent/teacher meeting when the time comes.  

It is really important that you have access to both of these platforms so you know exactly what is happening in our school. 

Our Curriculum


We adopted the Dimensions' Learning Means the World curriculum in September 2022 and we love it! The curriculum is driven by the 4Cs of communication, conflict, conservation and culture which meets the needs of our diverse school community. It is designed to inspire an enthusiasm for learning, engaging with and learning about challenging 21st century issues, dealing with tomorrow’s issues today.

The progression through school follows four phases: Explorers (EYFS), Pathfinders (Years 1 and 2), Adventurers (Years 3 and 4) and Navigators (Years 5 and 6).

To find out more about our new curriculum please click here.

In the files at the bottom of this page, you will find our curriculum newsletters and the WHiSK (What I Should Know) sheet for each unit of learning



As well as developing subject-specific skills, knowledge and understanding through the themes, the children will also be acquiring skills which will help them become well-rounded individuals and ready for their next phase of learning. Our Pathfinders will learn to be innovative, decisive, creative and independent. For more information about Pathfinders, click here.

Thank you for all your continued support. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me via ClassDojo or speak to me at the start or end of the school day.
