We’ve had a lovely day today in Year 1 and we hope that your child enjoyed their first day.
Please click below for the Welcome to Year 1 leaflet which contains all the information you need about the routines in Year 1. (A paper copy of this was sent home with your child’s report at the end of last term.)
We are always grateful for any parents/grandparents who are able to come and help out in class. We need help on a regular basis with swimming and to hear readers (a good time for this is at 2.30 so if you find yourself sitting in your car waiting for your child, why not come in and listen to some readers?) or to help out occasionally with trips etc.
We are also looking for some volunteers who can help with the upkeep of the Year 1 garden (outdoor learning environment). We need help to keep on top of the weeding and pruning of vegetation so that the children are able to enjoy learning in the area. We also have some beds which we use for planting with the children. We like to involve the children as much as possible to help as it is a good real life experience for them. If you (or a family member or friend) can spare an afternoon a week or would like to come in every now and then, to help with this we would be really grateful.
If you are able to help in any way, please speak to your child’s teacher.
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday evening (7th September) at 7pm for the parents information evening.
We are looking forward to a busy and exciting year.
The Year 1 Team
