Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

 

 

 

WELCOME BACK!

 

We are so pleased to have our new year 1 children with us back at school. We have been so impressed with how well they have settled in and how quickly they are learning the new routines. This half term we will be exploring our topics 'All About Me', learning about each other, our families, our likes and dislikes, and 'Fly Me To The Moon', where we will learn all about the Apollo 11 mission and Neil Armstrong's journey to be the first man on the moon. 

 

News

 

As we do not recommend that parents/carers give out sweets or treats to celebrate their child's birthday, we have introduced non-uniform days to celebrate children's birthdays. On your child's birthday (or the day closest to it, if it falls on a weekend or during the holidays), your child may come to school in their own clothes in recognition of their special day!

 

Key Information

 

Orange Class - Mrs Budworth, Mrs Brown, Mrs Cooper and Miss Fuller

Purple Class - Mr Alozie and Mrs Horsfall

 

Please don't forget to check our weekly newsletter that will be sent directly to your email as well as being saved on this page. This will include updated information about what are doing in school, activities you can try at home and important dates.

 

P.E. for this half term will be on Mondays. Please ensure your child wears appropriate PE kit on this day, including appropriate footwear. long hair tied back and earrings removed. Thank you. 

 

Please ensure that ALL school uniform is clearly labelled including lunchboxes and water bottles. The children are responsible for their own belongings during the school day. 

 

It is essential that parents/carers walk their children to their classrooms in the morning - please do not send children unattended to the classrooms. Remember to let your child's class teacher know if your child is going home with another parent, or will be collected by someone different. Alternatively, ring or email the school office who will inform your child's class teacher.

 

If you have any questions about any aspects of Year 1, please speak to your child's class teacher.

School Values Home Certificate

We have been thrilled to see the children demonstrating our school values of love and kindness, bravery and honesty, exploring and learning, teamwork and friendship and love of life and our world. This certificate can be printed and awarded to your child by you and others at home when you see one of our school values in action at home. If your child receives a values certificate, please encourage them to let their teacher know so that we can acknowledge it in school too by moving your child's picture on to the relevant values cloud on our classroom displays.

Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:

  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.

If you’re worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 – don’t go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.
