Year 1




Welcome to Year 1!

We hope your children are looking forward to starting a new school year with us.

In September we will be beginning our Geography based topic of 'Why can't a Meerkat live in the North Pole?' If you would like to prepare your child during the holidays you can look at animal habitats, survival needs and classification of animals. If you have any books/toys/artefacts related to this theme we would be very grateful if we could borrow them.


Our PE days this half term are Mondays and Tuesdays.

Please make sure PE kits are in school for these days - including pumps.

Please remove earrings for PE days or ensure your child knows how to remove them.


Please take the time to look through the Year 1 end of year expectations below.


 If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to us or make an appointment.


We look forward to a successful year with your child.

Grandparent Interviews

Grandparents who ventured into Year One yesterday were interviewed to within an inch of their lives by our fabulous and inquisitive children. The children showed great interest in what the world was like in "black and white" and all grandparents who attended were very happy to relay tales of their own school days. As this was such a lovely social event, cold drinks and cakes were very much necessary to complete the afternoon. Thank you to all grandparents who were able to enlighten our children about days gone by.
