News from Year 1

 

A very warm welcome to Year 1! I hope you’ve all had a restful summer holiday and are looking forward to the new school year.  This term we are looking at Autumn and Winter in Science and toys from the past in our D.T. and History lessons.  The children will need their PE kits on Wednesdays and Fridays including a pair of plimsolls or trainers for outdoor sessions. Homework will be sent home on Fridays and needs to be handed in on the following Wednesday.  Pupils will also be given reading books and new reading records and I would appreciate it if you could listen to your child read on a regular basis and sign their reading record.  I am available to answer any queries after school on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

 

In Year 1 we learn to:
