We Need You!

As you know we really value parental involvement and appreciate the support of our parents.

Reading is a crucial way in which you can help your child at home. Please read with your child every night, even if it is only for 5 minutes!

Welcome to Year 1!

Welcome to Year 1.  I hope that you all had an amazing summer!

I am looking forward to the term and our exciting new topics .
 I hope you are ready to work hard and have fun!

If you have any questions or concerns please come and speak to me at the end of the day or call the school office to arrange an appointment.


Our Year 1 motto is

'I can if I try!'

No matter how old we are, we all learn by making mistakes! In year 1 it doesn't matter if we make mistakes but it is important that we always try our best and have a go. smiley


As a school we are passionate about children's emotional health and well-being. This year we will continue to focus on 'Growth Mindset' initiatives.  


General information

If your child would like snack at playtimes then please use the online booking system as we no longer accept cash in school. Toast, fruit, milk, milkshake and juice are all available to book online each day or further in advance. 

Year 1 P.E days will be wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has their P.E kit in school from Monday until Friday.  

Library                                                                                            We are lucky enough to have use of our lovely library in KS1!  Children will visit the library every week where possible to select a book of their choice. This book can then be taken home for your child to enjoy and read. Library books must be returned by the following week for your child to select a new one. Please ensure that your child has their library book each week. More details to follow.
