Toll Bar Primary School

Together we shine bright and reach high! We are Toll Bar!


Welcome to Sycamore class

The staff working in Year One this year are Miss Whaley, Mrs Bleything, Miss McCamley, and Miss J Baker


We are looking forward to welcoming your children and seeing how much progress they can make this year. We have so much planned and can’t wait to see your children having fun whilst learning.

As previously, we will be holding daily Phonics lessons using the schools Read Write Inc scheme. There will be further updates on this as the term progresses. We will be working towards the compulsory Phonics Screening check in June 2023 and will give more information over the course of the year. To help prepare for this it would help if your child can bring their reading book bag every day for us to practice both their RWI book and their reading for pleasure story.


PE days will be on Wednesday and Friday until Christmas as we are lucky enough to be receiving lessons from Miss Dalton on a Wednesday in dance in preparation for our Christmas performance.


Sycamore regularly win the attendance award for the week!! We are thrilled to keep winning!

Help us to keep the best attendance scores across the school by attending school as much as possible. 


We learn so much more by being in school and every lesson and every day helps.

Reading scheme used in school

The reading scheme we use in school is called Read Write Inc. 

This literacy programme was developed by Ruth Miskin, published by Oxford University Press and is taught in over 5000 schools throughout the United Kingdom.

Our pupils will focus on learning sounds and the letters that represent them, along with learning how to form the letters. The books that are then read are written using only the letters the pupils have learnt (along with a few separately taught ‘tricky words’) which will help when building up confidence in reading.
