Welcome to Year YR/1E


Welcome to our Year class page.We hope you have had a wonderful Summer holiday and are recharged and ready to start your Year 1 / Reception journey. We have lots of exciting things planned for our first term. Autumn term 1 will commence with Art week. We will be looking at the work of Frida Kahlo and creating our own unique portraits for the Art Gallery. We hope all our parents can come and visit our gallery to see all the children's amazing artwork.


Please visit this page regularly as it will be updated with photos of our work and links to support learning. Take a look at our planning documents (coming soon) to find out more about what we will be learning this year.

Below are details of your child's weekly routine and any other additional information that may be useful.  




Children will require their P.E. kits every Monday and Friday. They should leave it in school until the half term holiday. This will ensure that they don’t regularly forget their P.E. kit. Please ensure that all items of your child's PE Kit is clearly labelled. The children will need either pumps or trainers as the children will participate in outdoor and indoor activities throughout the term. If your child doesn’t have the correct footwear, they may not be able to participate in certain activities, which would have a negative impact on their physical development.


Reading Books / Homework


Reading Books & Lending Library – The children will change their reading books once a week on a Friday. On this day your child will receive two reading books to read during the course of the week. Please ensure your child brings their books every Friday for changing. Could you please sign their reading journal to show that your child has read their reading books? Remember, it is important you read with your child for fifteen minutes every evening. Later in the term the Lending library books will also be given out every Friday, please ensure your child completes their book review so they can collect points.


Learning log – Children will be given learning log challenges each term which are linked to the work they have been covering throughout the topic. This needs to be handed in the following week, please take this opportunity to work with your child and tackle the challenges with a creative, imaginative mind that celebrates your child's ideas.


Please do not hesitate to see me after the school day if you have any questions or need any further information.


Thank you for your anticipated support.
