Welcome to Year 1

Meet the Staff

Miss Hudson

Favourite subject to teach: I enjoy teaching phonics and writing, seeing the different ways children spell words using their phonic knowledge is both rewarding and entertaining at times!

Favourite book: Allan’s Big Scary Teeth, by Jarvis

Favourite Author: Children’s author Eric Carle

Favourite Song: Mr Brightside by The Killers


I love to read and can often be found at home snuggled up with my Kindle. I’m addicted to home improvement programmes and love shopping!

I also try to keep fit by going to kettlebell and metafit classes as often as I can.

Miss Frawley

Favourite subject:  I love teaching all subjects especially English, but my favourite is Religious Education.

Favourite book:  The Jolly Postman by Allan Ahlberg. 

Favourite song:  I love music and my taste is so varied - anything from Queen to The Killers! Being a Beatles fan, my favourite song would definitely be ‘Hey Jude’! 


Hobbies: I enjoy relaxing by doing some yoga, but running is great too - I completed The Great North Run a few years ago and would like to do it again someday! I love reading books which are set in different countries, especially India, but I also enjoy browsing through interior design magazines. My three children and their hobbies keep me extremely busy, but our favourite time together is a country walk with our dog, Buddy.

We set high expectations, and throughout the year, children are encouraged to become independent learners and understand the importance of having a ‘can do’ attitude.


All children will access a daily phonics and reading lesson following the Read, write inc scheme - they will become confident at decoding and spelling words using Fred talk and Fred fingers.


We teach and learn through half-termly topics in order to capture children’s interest and provide plenty of opportunities for asking questions and sharing the children’s own experiences. You could be learning about The Great Fire of London, Castles, Magical Mapping or even the Seaside!

We are lucky enough in Year 1 to have a fantastic learning environment, supplemented by our Key Stage shared area and outdoor area which is used to support core subjects such as science and geography.
