Welcome to Year 1

Dear Parents


Welcome back to school and Happy New Year to you all. We hope you’ve had a happy holiday, and that the children are well rested and raring to go!  


A copy of our planning for this half term can be found on our 'useful information' page. As you can see, we have much to cover in quite a short time.


Our timetable runs as it did last term. The children have PE every Wednesday afternoon. We had lots of children without a PE kit last term. Please make sure your child has their kit, ready for action for next Wednesday.


Your child will continue to bring home a daily reading book, along with weekly spelling lists. The children benefit enormously from a daily reading session at home; it has a huge impact on the progress they make at school. We are always impressed by the support that the children receive from you at home so please do continue your efforts, they are much appreciated by us all.


We are equally keen that the children read to an adult as often as possible in school, and we are always on the lookout for extra help in achieving this. We have some very loyal helpers who give their time on a weekly basis, but need parent volunteers too, to cover reading every day. If you have a morning or afternoon, or even just an hour to spare any day, we would be so glad of your help!

As usual, please do come in to see us if you have a question, comment or concern. We are always available after school for a chat. Here’s to a happy term!


Yours sincerely


Lisa Cray and Louisa Cudmore
