Welcome to Year 1


Dear year 1 families, 


It has been a fantastic feeling getting back to normality in the classroom. The year 1 children have been working hard all term to catch up and start excelling again. 


A few notes to know: 

P.E is Monday (indoor) and Thursday (outdoor) 

Homework goes out on Friday and needs to be returned by Wednesday

RWI books go out on Monday and are collected on the Monday 

Book Bag Book will be changed once a week on your child's day. 

Bedtime Books are for you to read to your child. They are not expected to read these stories. These have a Year 1 Class Book sticker. These are changed every Friday. 


Enjoy the rest of the term :)

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.

Warning: produced by a very bad videographer (Mr Rowe) in a mixture of difficult environments.

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)
