WELCOME TO YEAR 1

Classes: Tawny Owls and Snowy Owls

This year in Year 1 we are looking at a range of topics, including ourselves, castles, plants, animals and the seaside. This half term, Year 1 are studying toys of the past, where we will be learning about how and why toys have changed over time.
Reading is something we love to do and we really hope you can share this experience with your child. We ask you to listen to your child read daily and write a note in their diary to let the teacher know how they got on.
In Year 1, P.E is done every Tuesday afternoon. It is very important that each child brings their own P.E kit (shorts, t-shirt and plimsoles) and keeps this in school each half term.
