Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 - Summer Term 2019

Welcome back!  We hope that you had an enjoyable Easter holiday and we look forward to a busy Summer term.  Don't forget to bring your P.E bags back and please check that trainers still fit and that you have a spare pair of socks.
The weather looks changeable over the coming days so please bring water bottles (with water only please) and a sunhat, as well as a waterproof coat. 
We look forward to seeing you tomorrow morning, Wednesday 24th April.



Following on from parents evenings this week here is a reminder of the phonics apps which you might find useful to help support your child with their phonic knowledge in preparation for the phonics screening.

What to bring in each day

Book bag, a transparent/translucent water bottle (water only please!) and a coat - we try to take the children outside in all weather unless there is a torrential downpour. Please make sure all items are clearly named. (Please note that children in Year 1 do not need to bring wellies to school.)


PE Reminders

PE in Year 1 takes place on a Tuesday and a Wednesday.

Please check that trainers still fit and that all PE kit, sweatshirts and other belongings are clearly named.

Please make sure that you remove earrings on PE days as children will not be permitted to take part in PE lessons if they are wearing earrings (for safety reasons).

Long hair should be tied back at all times in school.

Please provide a pair of socks to keep in your child's PE bag to change into if your child wears tights to school. (It can also be useful to have a change of socks if footwear gets a bit soggy in rainy weather!)

Brown joggers (available from Brenda's) or other plain dark coloured joggers may be worn for outdoor PE lessons if the weather is cooler.
