Welcome to Year 1
It has been lovely to meet and welcome your children into Year 1. At the beginning of this term our priority will be to settle them into school and ensure they feel happy and safe.
The Year 1 school day begins at 8.55 and finishes at 3.10. For drop off and pick up arrangements, and further information about the school, please read the Parent Handbook on the parent page.

Lunch and Snack
Until our catering facilities restart, every child will need to bring a packed lunch. Please send this into school in a small bag or lunch bag. They will need their lunch, a bottle of water and a piece of fruit (or veg) for their snack. It would be helpful for your child if their snack is in a separate pot/bag, so that they know what to eat during the morning break.
Every Tuesday, Year 1 will have a PE lesson, either outside or in the hall.
Please can your child come to school wearing their PE kit (from Tuesday 15th Sept), so that they don't have to change in school. (Black or navy shorts/ joggers/ leggings, t-shirt/ school polo top, school jumper/ cardigan and trainers).
Once we have re-assessed the most suitable book level/band for your child, reading books will be sent home, with guidance on how to help support your child with their reading. We will also then be able to assign books to their Bug Club online library.
Homework will be set every week, using Seesaw, whereby teachers can set homework digitally for children to complete on a device at home, which can then be sent back for the teacher to respond to. We will be sending out further information about this over the next few weeks.
Context for Learning
Our contexts this year will be:
|Autumn 1: Memory Box||Autumn 2: Moon Zoom|
|Spring 1: St. David||Spring 2: Super Heroes|
|Summer 1: Rio da Vida||
Summer 2: The Enchanted Woodland
Our context for learning this term is 'Memory Box'.
We will start off talking to the children about growing up...can they remember being small? Did they have a favourite toy or a best loved book?
Memories are special...Let's make some more!
