Autumn Term 2019


Welcome to your first term in Year One!  We hope that you have all had a lovely Summer holiday and are looking forward to seeing all of your friends and your new classroom.  We have lots of exciting things planned for our first term and you will be learning lots of new things.


We are looking forward to seeing you in your smart new uniforms and will continue to line up at 8:55 in the main playground.  Children are to be collected at 3:15 – parents to gather by the gate on the main playground where children enter school in the mornings and not outside the classroom door.  Please ensure the office have up to date contact numbers and inform a member of staff if someone new will be collecting your child. 


Please bring your book bag into school everyday and practise your reading book every night.  Parents please continue to write in your child’s yellow reading diary when they have read at home. 


Children are permitted to bring a named water bottle into school and can bring in a healthy snack for break time each day.

PE bags should be brought into school as soon as possible as we will be starting PE lessons on Monday 10th September.  PE will take place on Monday afternoons.  Please can PE kits be in a drawstring PE bag as large back packs do not fit on the children's pegs.
