Welcome 1P and 1K

We are very excited to welcome you into your new class. 

The teacher in 1P will be Miss Powell and the teacher in 1K will be Miss Klair. 

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


Weekly Information: 

Everyday your child will need to bring to school the following...  

  • School bag.
  • Reading book and reading diary.
  • Named water bottle.
  • Lunch box (If having a lunch provided from home).
  • An outdoor coat suitable for all weathers. 



On a Wednesday, Year 1 go swimming in the morning and have PE in the afternoon. Please make sure all jewellery  is removed and long hair is tied back. Please also ensure that every item of clothing is clearly labelled and is in school on this day. 



Friday is whole school Feel Good Friday! Children will need to come to school in navy tracksuit bottoms or leggings and non-branded trainers. They will still need to wear their GV polo shirt and jumper. This is so children can take part in activities that focus on their physical health and wellbeing. 

Homework will also go out on a Friday and will be expected to be completed before the following Wednesday. This may be in paper form or via your child's 365 account on SharePoint. 


* Please note - Your child will receive a new reading book and reading record within the first two weeks. Phonics and reading assessments will be taking place during this time to ensure your child is given an appropriate book that matches their ability.
