Year 1

Hello! We hope you have had a lovely break over half term and are feeling motivated and ready to learn! We are really looking forward to seeing everybody back and engaging in our learning. Please remember that attendance is vital so that your child can achieve the best possible outcome. As we complete our phonics at 9am it is really important that children arrive promptly so not to miss any essential learning.

We will be exploring the different rules of the United Kingdom such as Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth II and King Charles III.
