School looks a little bit different this year, but we're sure that we will all still have plenty of fun and learn lots at school. We will be washing our hands lots of times for at least 20 seconds with soap and water and we will be trying to keep our distance from each other. The teachers will clean the classrooms in the middle of the day. We will also be having lunch in our classrooms!
Year 1 has two bubbles - Orange Class and Purple Class bubble, and Green Class bubble. At the moment, we can't mix across the bubbles, but we can still wave and say hello to each other.
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. The children are responsible for their own belongings during the school day as we are trying not to touch other people's belongings to keep each other safe.
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.
