Welcome to Year One!

Summer 2-Holidays- Where and When?


Our topic for the next half term is 'Holidays-Where and When?' This is a Geography/History based topic where we will be looking at holidays in the past and present as well as places we may visit. 


For more details see the topic overview below.


Please encourage your child to do their own research into areas they are particularly interested in. Your child is welcome to bring into class anything of interest they find out about the topic. smiley


Book bags


Please send book bags in every day even if your child has not finished reading their book. Children will be given a chance to read and change the book throughout the day.


Homework and spellings are sent home every Friday. Please ensure that homework is completed and returned on or before the following Thursday. Spelling books are only needed in school on Fridays for the spelling test. Children will be kept in over a break time if homework is not complete.

Water Bottles


Please remember to send a water bottle in with your child. These will be filled up daily to ensure that they have access to fresh water after break time and lunchtime.


Water bottles will be sent home on a Friday for a clean, to be returned on the Monday.




Please remember to label your child's full uniform including and hats, scarfs and gloves to reduce any lost property.

If your child brings any uniform home that isn't theirs please return it back so we can give it back to their owner.  


In class we do already have a large amount of lost jumpers and cardigans with no names on, feel free to ask to take a look to see if any belong to your child.

PE and Swimming


P.E is on a Tuesday morning.


Please ensure you child has kit in school which include- Red t-shirt, black shorts and plimsoles. We do not have spare kit in school for the children to wear so if they do not have kit they will not be able to take part.


Swimming is on a Thursday morning.


Please meet class staff at the swimming pool for 8.45.

Swimming kit includes - a swimming costume or swimming shorts, towel to dry and a swimming hat. Swimming hats can be purchased for £1 at the swimming pool. Children can bring goggles and their own arm bands but arm bands will be supplied if the children need them.
