Welcome to Year 1!

Welcome to Summer 1!

We cannot believe we are already in the summer term! Miss Hopcroft and Miss Frizzell have had some of these children since the summer term in 2020 and will miss them so much!

Each morning we will continue to do phonics, English and maths and then the afternoons will consist of mental maths, handwriting and either geography, science or DT.

We will continue with Feel Good Friday on a Friday which includes PSHE and character education.

Our topic this half term is Australia!
