Year 1 Update letter

Welcome to our 2017, Year 1 class page!


13.9.17- Welcome to Year 1. Miss Cleaver and Miss Coutts are the class teachers and the children are also supported by Mrs Patterson, Mrs Oakley and Mrs Child.


This term our enquiry is all about Ourselves. We are learning about our bodies.


We read stories every day. Please read stories with your child at home to foster their love of books! We encourage the children to read every day. If you want any tips or hints about helping your child with their reading please see any of the grown ups in our area!


Reading Books and Records

Please make sure your child has their reading book and reading record at school every day from next week. 

P.E. is on Monday and Tuesday

Please make sure that the children have the appropriate kits (for indoor and outdoor use), long hair tied back and earrings either removed or taped over. We advise that children leave their kits for the whole half term and we will send them home for a good clean at the end of the half term (unless they are particularly dirty!) 


During the winter months the children will still be going outside for play time and with our grounds being the way they are we advise that you send your children to school with an extra pair of shoes or wellies so as not to get their school shoes dirty! Also please ensure your child has a rain proof coat so that they can still go outside when the weather isn’t as nice!

Children do get messy and we know how tricky the winter months are to keep clean. If you would like to you can send a spare set of socks and trousers for your child to keep in their locker in case of emergencies should they get wet or muddy you are more than welcome to!


We encourage the children to drink lots of water. Please send a named water bottle every day. If your child does not enjoy water you may provide very diluted squash.

Please make sure all items of clothing, especially jumpers are named.
