Year 1

Welcome to Year 1’s Class Page!

Miss Bailey
EYFS & KS1 Phase Leader
Hello, my name is Miss Bailey and I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. When I was younger I would rush home from school only to play schools with my teddies and dolls.

In my spare time I like to keep busy with my family and friends. Whether that be eating out, playing on the Switch or cuddling down to a good movie. I am also part of a dance group which is incredible for someone who has two left feet, but you can’t mock a trier!

I love working at Smallthorne Primary and I love being a part of and making a difference to our community.

Mrs Cooke
Class Teacher – Year 1

Hello I’m Mrs Cooke. I’ve worked within education for over 20 years and been at Smallthorne for six years. We’re a fantastic team at Smallthorne and we are 100% dedicated to every child’s journey through the school.

I’m married and have three beautiful children and two crazy pugs. In my spare time I love to go fishing and have trips out to the beach. I also like to knit, read and watch a good movie!

Miss Dalton
Learning Support Practitioner – Year 1
Hi, I am Miss Dalton. I like pasta, Disney, art and different kinds of music. When I was younger I attended Smallthorne, I loved it so much that after I left I volunteered whenever I could.

Mrs Cooke and Miss Dalton would like to share with you all of the information you need to know about Year 1!

Our PE day is on a Monday and Tuesday.
Please send your child to school in their PE kit and ensure they are not wearing earrings or jewellery.

Please read with your child at least 4 times per week at home using the books provided.  Don’t forget to sign their reading diary so that they get their raffle ticket!

All of our homework is completed on Doodle Learning. The children will receive their points for achieving their targeted number of stars weekly for Doodle Tables and Doodle Spell.

Doodle English and Doodle Maths are optional.

The more we smile, the harder we work, the brighter we shine."
