Year 1

We are committed to safeguarding; if you have any concerns about the well being of a child in school please contact a member of staff.

Last day of books handed out: Friday 1st July! All books will be collected in on Thursday 7th July. 



We are going to keep PE days the same for the last half term. Please note that both sessions will be outdoor. 

  • Wednesday (athletics)
  • Thursday (basic skills)


We cannot believe that this is going to be the last half term with Year 1! The progress we have witnessed over the last 5 half terms is unbelievable and we cannot wait to see this continue for the last 7 weeks.


The phonics screen will be happening on Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th June. Any children not in school on these dates will complete the screen once they return to school. The results from the phonics screen will be with your child's end of year report. 


We are very much looking forward to Sports Day on Wednesday 8th June and we are sure you are as well. Please remember that your child needs to come in a colour t-shirt from the team they are in.


If you have any questions or queries about anything this half term or anything else then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
