Welcome to Year 1

We have had a great start to the year. We have been very busy and we have all settled well into Year 1.

To help with the smooth running of our classroom, and to maximise the children’s learning, please could you make sure they have the following items in school every day.

  • Water bottles
  • reading books and reading records (even if you didn’t get a chance to read them)
  • full PE kit, including a change of footwear
  • a pair of wellies on our boot rack

Please ensure that all of your child’s items are labelled so that in the event that they get lost they can be returned to the right owner.


New spellings will be sent out every Friday to be returned the following Thursday. The children will be tested every Friday.

Children will also be getting half termly creative homework linked to our topic. Make sure to bring in the completed homework so the children can share their hard work with their friends.

Poem of the Month

Every month we will be looking at a new poem. This month’s poem is A Little Seed.


A little seed for me to sow

A little soil to make it grow

A little hole, a little pat,

A little wish, and that is that,

A little sun, a little shower.

A little while –

And then, a flower!
