At Northfield Road, we follow Ruth Miskin Phonics. If you would like to know how you can support your child at home, please follow the link below: 



Your child should have come home with a reading book and their new reading record. Please try to hear your child read for 10 minutes each day and record this in their reading record. When we hear children read in school, we will also change their books depending on their understanding of the text. If we feel that the children need to consolidate their understanding, we may ask them to keep their book a little longer. 

Google Classroom

All of the children have been invited to join the new Google Classroom page for Year 1. Most of the children have accepted their invite in school. However, if your child has not been in school this week, they might not have yet accepted the invite. Remember that, on occasions, homework will be set on Google Classroom. Please help your child to familiarise themselves with it at home. 

PE day

Our PE day for this half term will be Tuesday. Please remember to send your child in their PE kit every Tuesday. Children can wear dark jogging bottoms and their house coloured t-shirt. 

Welcome to the class page for 1L and 1Q!

The children have been so excited to be back at school and they have been so grown up during their first few days! We are very proud of how sensibly they have come back into their classrooms and settled into life in Year 1.


On Thursday, they enjoyed their first reward time session. This week the children chose to spend their reward time outside, so that they could play on their amazing new playground equipment for a little longer. They had a great time!
