Year 1 - Last Day of Term...


Hello everyone,

Firstly, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone that made it to our beach party on Friday! The weather didn't seem to stop us! Mrs Webb and I would also both like to say thank you for the thoughtful gifts as well. They were very kind. 



As you all know tomorrow is the last day of the school year... the children will be bringing home anything that is left in school that may belong to them for the summer holidays. We have a few wellies and pieces of outdoor clothing left outside so please be sure to check if any of this is yours. Also coming home today will be a transition pack for year 1 to year 2 for you to have a look at. 


All that remains to be said is a massive heartfelt thank you for working alongside us and trusting us with your children's education and well-being this year. As I said on Friday, it really does make such a massive difference when home and school work in partnership. 



If anyone has any questions please let us know.

Year 1 - Friday's Beach Party... Changes!

Image result for beach party

Hello everyone,

As lots of you already know, we had planned to have a celebration for the year 1 class with a beach party this Friday. However, with the weather forecast looking decidedly rough for the day we are going to make some changes to the original plan... 

  • Children will no longer need to wear play/wet clothes into school on the day - normal school uniform will be expected. 
  • You will no longer need to bring in inflatables/water pistols etc.
  • Parents/carers/families are still welcome in to school from 2.30pm on the day. 
  • Activities will take place in the classroom area instead (mostly!!) 
We apologise for the change of plans late on but hope that we can still have some good fun on the day! And who knows, there may be some water involved somewhere along the line anyway!?

Year 1 - This Week...



Hello everyone,

We have another busy busy week in year 1 this week! 

Today we have been making the final few preparations for Sports Afternoon on Wednesday, as the picture below hopefully illustrates... 


This afternoon we were joined by the Reception Class and had the privilege of reading a story in pairs. This was a fantastic activity and allowed the year 1 children to see first hand how far they have come with their learning journey this year as well as support the children in their transition to year 1 next September. 


Tomorrow we have our Tae-Kwando session in school... look out for some info about this coming home if you would like to pursue this further. 
Then, on Wednesday afternoon year 1 have their sports afternoon from 1.30pm which you are all invited to! 

Finally, thank you to everyone who has bought back their Fleet Trip letters so far!

Hello everyone,

Yesterday we began learning our dance for Dance Day this Friday! To help us with showing this dance we thought as a class that it would look MUCH cooler if the children were to wear caps and sunglasses.
