Welcome to Year 1!
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.
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!
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.
