Year 1




A very big welcome to the new year one class page for September 2017 .

I am really looking forward to working with year one next year and can't wait to get to know the children and grown ups better in September. 

This year the children will be taught by myself , Mrs Davies and Mrs Brandrick on Friday for enrichment day. In addition to this our class support staff are Mrs Pitchford, Mrs Bardell and Mrs Beard as well as our wonderful volunteer classroom support assistant Mrs Bangar. 



So far this term we have been establishing rules and classroom routines . The children have settled in remarkably well and I am so proud of their efforts so far. Please have a look at the starred areas below to see photos of what we have been up to . These areas will be updated as aften as possible.  

Finally , I would just like to thank parents and carers for their support at this crucial stage in their child's learning. The change from Reception to Year One can be dramatic for the children as they enter a more formalised education . This change will be gradual but many children can find it difficult in the early days. If you do have any worries, please feel free to come and have a chat with me at the door at the end of the school day. I always welcome comments and queries but if you wish to have a longer discussion regarding your little one , or would prefer to speak in private rather than at the door , please do pop into the office where you can make an appointment or request a callback . 

I look very much forward to working with you next year to help your child to be all that they can be .
