Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

 

 

Welcome back to school and to Year 1!

We have a very exciting year planned for you. We have lots of new activities and lots of new skills to learn.

 

There are two teachers in year one this year. Mrs Millington will be the class teacher on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Mrs Davies will be the class teacher on Thursday and Friday. We are very lucky to have Mrs Carr every day to help us with our activities.

 

P.E. is set for Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Please bring your P.E. kit, T-shirt, shorts/leggings and trainers or plimsoles.

 

Reading books and homework will be given out each Wednesday. Please make sure book bags and reading books are in school each day.

 

Mrs Millington will allocate new Bug Club reading books at the beginning of each half term. Please use your child's login details which is located in their home learning books to access these.

 

All homework set will focus on skills we have been learning in class. Please encourage your child to complete home learning.

 

We look forward to seeing all children develop, and learn, as well as have fun 😁
