Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Miss Powell and Miss Klair

We hope that you have all had a wonderfully exciting and adventurous holiday and are now well rested and ready for the start of the Autumn term.

We have lots of exciting things planned for this half term which we are sure you are going to enjoy!


Our Autumn Topic Information


Amazing animals.

This term we are looking forward to learning about all different kinds of animals.

Do you know any interesting facts already?

The topic will kick start with a visit from a local animal company. Do you have a favourite animal? Do you have any pets at home? We would love to see pictures of you with your favourite animal!


What do I need to remember?


1K have reading books changed. 

Everyone to return their reading books. Books will only be changed if there is a record in the reading diary.


1P have reading books changed.


Swimming Kit - remember your towel and swimming hat. Please do not wear earrings and tie hair back. 

Hand in Maths and English homework.




P.E kit - remember your team colour t-shirt. Hair must be tied back  and earrings removed.

Homework will be given out today (returned Wednesday). 

Could you please send in your child’s reading book and reading diary every day as we may have reading opportunities that we need to record in your child’s diaries. They will come back home at the end of each day! All books should be in school everyday as we change the books that day.
