Welcome to Year 1
The Year 1 team are delighted to be teaching your children this
year, and our aim is to ensure that your child is happy and successful, whilst working in an exciting, hardworking, stimulating and challenging environment.
The children of Year 1 are lucky to have two teachers on the team. Mrs Burwood will be teaching on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday; Mrs Grace will be teaching on a Thursday and Friday. Miss Cooper will be supporting the children all week.
Every morning the children need to hang their coats and bags on their peg in the cloakroom as the come into school. To encourage them to become more independent, when their reading book needs changing they need to put their book in the changing box. We will remind the children each day, but if you feel that your child is not changing their book when they should be doing, please let us know and we will offer them more support. Please read with your child as often as possible. Enjoy sharing books together and visiting the library. We cannot stress enough the importance of your child being a confident reader. It has an impact on the quality of their writing and their ability to read and understand maths questions.
PE will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays, but children should have their PE kits in school all week. One of our sessions will be outside, so trainers will be necessary. The children will be expected to get themselves changed into their PE kits and then changed again into their uniform, so any practice you can do at home would be greatly appreciated.
Please send a water bottle in to school every day. There will also be access to the water fountain throughout the day.
Please ensure your child is wearing the correct school uniform. Earrings and trainers are not part of our school uniform and should not be worn to school. It is important to us that we work together as a partnership to develop each child, so if you have any concerns at all, please do not hesitate to come and speak to us.
Many thanks for your continued support,
Mrs Burwood, Mrs Grace, Miss Cooper
