Year 1


Welcome to Year 1


Dear year 1 families, 


Good day everyone!  This is the start of the end! !!! 


Please see all plans below - note Monday's assembly has been changed, however we are having issues with the I.T, due to this i haven't been able to update the plan. 


Please watch: Kindness is My Superpower Read Aloud - YouTube (youtube-nocookie.com)

Discuss how your child will be kind: Today, this week, and when they return back to school. 



Uploading your work: 

Thank you to all those parents who have uploaded work via PM. It allows me to keep a close assessment of your children while you are remote learning. If you can start to use the 'Work' tab at the top of the PM page, then 'upload' your child's work that way, then I can see the images much better. There is no need to upload every piece of work that your child completes. Please keep ahold of it and I will file it with your child's home learning work once we return to school. However, If we specifically request to see some work, or you feel your child had worked incredibly hard and you would like this piece to be showcased then please upload this through the PM 'Work' tab as previously described. 


Private and personal information 

if you need to contact me with private or personal information please do this formally through the school email. 


I wish you and your family good health, 


Kind regards, 


Mr. Rowe

We have been very creative this year with our Harvest song. As we are no longer allowed to sing inside the classroom we have been singing all around the school.

Leader in Me


On a daily basis, the children try to demonstrate our core values within school. As we aim to practise them so often, they become good habits that we can use not only in school but also at home too. 


  • Habit 1: Be Proactive (You’re in Charge)
  • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood(Listen Before You Talk)
  • Habit 6: Synergise (Together Is Better)
  • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)

Growth Mindset


This year we will be helping the children to develop a Growth Mindset. This aims to increase their resilience, perseverance and independence in their learning. Further information can be found by following the link below.
