Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


Your class teachers are Mrs Virr in 1V, and Miss Turner in 1T.


Our Topic for this Half Term is 'Marvellous Me!'

We will be learning about what makes us special and how we are all unique. Children will think about how their everyday life is different to the adults they know.

We will learn about our bones in Science, and will also learn about where we live.


PE Days


1T will have PE on Mondays (outside) and on Thursdays.

1V will have PE on Mondays (outside) and on Wednesdays.

Please ensure long hair is tied back and any earrings are removed on these days as children will not be able to take part if they are wearing jewellery. It is helpful if girls wearing tights have a spare pair of socks in their PE bags.


Please make sure all of your child's clothing is named, especially jumpers and cardigans which they take off during the day. This is also very important for PE kit when all the children get changed at once!
