Year 1

Happy New Year and welcome back to Class 1. We have missed you!


We hope you have had a brilliant Christmas holiday. We are so excited about the next two terms. As usual, Mrs Craddock will teach you on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Darnton will teach you on a Thursday and a Friday. Mrs Stow will be with us every morning too. Miss Chalmers will teach geography and some science and you will also have Dave for some PE lessons.


Your curriculum newsletter for this half term will show you some of the exciting things that we have planned for you, including 'Uses of everyday materials' in science, 'People and their communities' in geography, 'My family history' in history, 'Kingdom of God' in RE and plenty of art and DT! Of course we will have lots of fun learning English and maths too and there will be plenty of music, dance and singing to make us smile!


Make sure your PE kit is in school at all times for our PE lessons on Wednesdays. Also don't forget to name all your uniform and belongings so we know who everything belongs to.  It makes life so much easier!


Now that you are used to being in Year 1, we will be expecting you to be even more independent, so you will need to remember to organise all your own belongings like folders, purses and bags and coats. Make sure you are prepared for the day as soon as you walk through the door in the morning!


We look forward to working together again throughout the Spring and Summer terms.

We are very proud of you all and what you have achieved so far in Class 1.
