News from Year 1

 

A warm welcome to the summer term in Year 1. The main change this term is the introduction of swimming lessons on Tuesdays.  Please send your child into school with their costume, a towel, and a swimming hat (if needed) in a plastic bag.  If your child wishes to wear goggles we need a signed letter to present to the Venue where the lessons are taking place.  We will continue to have P.E. on Wednesdays but no longer on Thursdays due to the addition of swimming.  Our Science topics are Spring and Summer and Materials and we will be learning about the music of The Beatles in History.  Finally, please make a note of our proposed trip to Kidzania on Friday 9th June.  A letter explaining all the details and cost of this trip will be sent out early in the summer term.
