Welcome to Year One!

In Year One, we have a group of enthusiastic and dedicated teaching staff. Our teachers are Mrs Rosser and Miss Broome and our Teaching Assistants are Miss O’Hara and Mrs Ison.

In Year One, we work as a team to build upon the foundations made in Reception, encouraging further independence, curiosity and creativity. We strive for all children to reach their potential in a happy and enabling environment. It is a very important year, with a more structured approach to allow children to take ownership of their learning.

We believe in developing a ‘growth mindset’, where children like being challenged, and show resilience and perseverance. ‘I CAN’T DO IT…. YET’.

We hope your child enjoys Year 1 as much as we will. For more information, please look at our Year 1 blog.

Every morning there will be a member of staff at the door to welcome your child into school, and will be available to answer any questions or queries. If you wish to make an appointment with your child’s class teacher to discuss anything further, please contact the school office.


At Park Hill Primary School, we are passionate about the curriculum and always plan imaginative and creative lessons, with the children at the centre of every decision we make. We want the best for our children, and ensure all lessons are suitably supportive and challenging for all individuals and their needs.

We like the children to be responsible for their own learning, and support them to choose work that will challenge their understanding and extend their knowledge.

Please find our curriculum jigsaw here to see what topics we will cover over the Autumn term. Autumn Term 1| Spring Term 1


Mrs Rosser

Hello, my name is Mrs Rosser. This is my third year at Park Hill Primary, where I spent my first two years in EYFS, teaching in Reception, which was fantastic. I am excited to help these children with their next school adventure.

I love being creative outside of school. I play the drums in a band, and I have played the piano from a young age. I also love cooking, painting, going on walks and penguins!

Miss Broome

Hello, my name is Miss Broome and this my first year at Park Hill Primary, and I am very excited to lead the children on a learning journey of fun and discovery. My favourite subject is Maths.

In my spare time, I like cosying up on the sofa with a good book and shopping. I also like owls and my favourite colour is black.



Precursive Handwriting

In Year One, we have been learning how to use the new handwriting scheme – precursive handwriting. You might like to practice this at home with your child. The only real difference is the guide in, which will really help when the children begin joining. You can find resources on http://www.sparklebox.co.uk/literacy/alphabet/cursive/letter-formation.html if you would like more […]

Copper Coin Race

Thank you all for the donations of Copper Coins at the end of last term to help support our funding for the mini-pitch. It has taken a lot of counting, but Mrs Plant and her ‘Plant’s Angels’ have been working around the clock (break and lunchtimes) to count every last coin. The final total is… […]
