Starling Class – Year 1

Welcome to our class page Starling families!

Firstly, we would like to say welcome to Willow Park. We are very much looking forward to the year ahead.

At Willow Park we will be continuing to follow our Light up Learning curriculum. This is an enquiry-based curriculum which focuses on people, places and stories which challenge the children with their learning in the local area.

PE Days

Monday and Wednesday – Your child should come to school dressed in PE kit.


Children are expected to read at home every day for approx. 10 minutes. They can change their books any time, but we recommend to read each book at least a couple of times.

We will be checking their Reading Records weekly, where you can leave a short comment as evidence of reading at home.

Children will take books from school. If you are looking for more, please click on: Books for Year 1 pupils aged 5-6 in KS1 | School Reading List

You can’t go wrong if you encourage your child to read some of the books on the list.


We will provide children with fruit at play time, but they can bring a piece of fruit or a plain biscuit from home too – it’s a busy morning and a long time until lunch.
