YEar 1


Welcome to Year 1!

Friday 11th September 2020

Hello! What a wonderful first week Year 1 have had. They have amazed us with their super counting skills and sentence writing. We have given each child a reading book which they can change at their own pace. Please bear with us while the children get used to the system as we encourage them to be as independent as possible. Please do not panic if your child brings home a book from the wrong box. Please send in the reading diary each day.

PE kits will be returned every Friday to be washed at the weekend and returned to school by Tuesday please. PE days continue to be Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Next week, the children will be working on their addition and subtraction skills and beginning our topic about old toys.

The first set of spellings will be sent home on Friday 18th September to be tested on the 25th September. Please feel free to use the spelling book given for the children to practise on.

We hope you have a lovely weekend and look forward to hearing all about it on Monday.

Mrs Croton and Mrs Dodd :)
