Where children shoot for the stars and shine

Year 1

Welcome families and children to Year One's page.  We hope that you are all safe and well.  Every day your teacher will upload activities you can complete at home. 


Everyday, at school, I teach a speed sound lesson as a fantastic way to support early reading. This has shown such a rapid rate of progress at St James. We follow a scheme founded by Ruth Miskin. Luckily,Ruth's team are doing LIVE speed sound lessons twice each day. I cannot stress enough the importance of this learning. Please ensure your child is accessing at least one of these each day. I suggest your child to watch Set 2 and Set 3.

These are some amazing sites! :) (this one isn't loading yet, as some many parents are trying to use it, but try it in a few days or so)
