Welcome to Koalas’ Class!

Class Teacher: Mrs Curran

Welcome to Year 1



The Koalas have use of the library every Tuesday afternoon.


Home Readers

When your child has finished a reading book, please write a comment to that effect (or just your initials) in the school planner. If your child wishes to change their book before their guided reading session, please ask them to bring their old book(s) to Mrs Curran to change them.


Show and Tell

Every Friday we will send a class toy home with a special book. This is to encourage speaking and listening skills within class. Please encourage your child to draw a picture (or add a photo) to illustrate what you have done at home with the class toy and write a few words or sentences to share their news.


PE Days

  • Friday morning
  • Friday afternoon  
  • Thursday afternoon

Don’t forget to name your PE kit and keep it in school during the week.



Year One children have a daily 20 minute phonics session in a group appropriate to the ‘phase’ in which they are working. Each Monday, this involves a spelling quiz based on what the group has been learning that week and the children also stick in their new spellings to learn.
