Year 1

Last updated 19.04.24


What a lovely first week back we have had in Year 1! We began the week with art week and finished it with a very exciting STEM lego workshop! The children really impressed us with their technology and engineering skills and they worked collaboratively to make their own machines and fairgrounds! Photos coming to the Year 1 gallery soon! :)


On this webpage is lots of useful information about the upcoming term, including useful dates, learning links and a photo album that we will use to share some of our fabulous learning.


Every day, pupils will need:

- A clear, re-usable water bottle.

- Their book bag.

- A coat.

- A PE kit (to be left at school in a drawstring bag).

- Their plastic wallet containing their Little Wandle book, banded book and reading journal.

- Pupils can also bring a fresh fruit or vegetable snack to eat at playtime.


In Summer 1, PE day will be on a Tuesday and library day will remain on Thursday.
