Welcome to Year 1

Information for Parents

This year, the staff working with your children will be the class teachers Mrs Lawson and Mrs Jones (Friday), along with teaching assistants, Mr Hatton and Mrs Rawcliffe. 

We will be using a cross-curricular approach to cover some exciting topics! During this first half term, our topic is ‘All About Me!’ We will be learning all about Ourselves and using this as the basis for our English, Mathematics, Science and topic work in class. In R.E, our first topic is Families.

  • Every child should bring a water bottle to school each day. This should be clearly labelled and brought home each night. Please ensure that all school uniform, including coats and book bags, are labelled with your child’s full name as they can easily get mixed up in a busy classroom or playground! Thank you.
