Welcome Letter

Welcome to Year 1


Dear Parents/Carers,


Welcome to Year 1 and the new term.  We hope to have a happy and productive year together. This first term our topic will be ‘Me, Myself and I’, this will include learning about homes, families, toys and senses. For more information on this please see our 'Autumn Term Overview'. 


Children will need their PE kits in school. They will need an indoor kit (t-shirt and shorts) and an outdoor kit (tracksuit and trainers) for PE outside.  Please ensure that your child does not wear their earrings on our PE days (Tuesdays and Thursdays). 


We will be introducing homework this term which will be posted on our website. Please see 'Autumn Term Homework Grid'. 


Your child will need their reading books in their bags every day. Can we please stress the importance of reading daily with your child.  5 minutes of daily reading with your child can greatly improve their ability. If you are finding this difficult please remember that little and often is key. 


If you have any questions or concerns please come and talk to us. If you would like to make an appointment for an after-school meeting we would be more than happy to see you, please ask us in the morning.


Thank you for your ongoing support,


The Year 1 Team smiley
