A caring place to Learn and Grow

Year 1



Hello Year One!


We hope that you all had a fantastic Summer Holiday full of lots of fun and rest! We are really looking forward to teaching you this year and we have lots of fun things planned for you.


This term our topic is 'Ourselves and Others'. Each week we will update the website with a weekly overview to show you what we are going to be learning at school, homework and keep you updated on any information.


Please could you bring a water bottle in with you each day.


We have a healthy snack to give to the children each day or you can send your children in with fruit if you would prefer.


Miss Davis' Outdoor P.E session: Thursday 10:50-11:50

Mrs Cranstone's P.E session: Wednesdays 13:50-14:50

Please could you send your children in with their hair tied up and can the children not wear earrings on these days.


Homework will be sent out on Friday each week and should be handed in on Tuesday the following week (details about the homework will be written on the weekly overview and uploaded to the website each week). Reading books will be changed once a week, please read with your children as often as possible and sign reading records to show reading at home. Spellings will be sent home after Christmas.


Explain and Tell:

Unfortunately as we have to minimise the number of things coming into school, the children will no longer be able to bring things in for Show and Tell activities. Instead, we will do Explain and Tell on Friday's. Each week one group will have their opportunity to share some news/ experiences from home.
