Transition to Year 1

At the start of the year, we will be echoing a lot of the play-based learning your children did when they were in Reception to help make their transition easier. When the class is happily settled and ready for a more formal style of learning, we will gradually introduce it.



After the children have been in school for a few weeks, homework activities will be sent home and a copy will be uploaded to our page for reference. Please do not feel pressured into completing every piece, we understand that family life can be very busy so just do what you can manage. Regular reading with your child is the most important thing you can do so if you do nothing else- Read, Read, READ! laugh



PE will be on a Wednesday and Friday each week.

Please ensure your child has a named PE kit in school, long hair is tied up and earrings are removed. See our PE curriculum map to find out about the different sports and skills the children will be taught this year. smiley


Swimming Lessons

Swimming lessons with Liz from 'Get in the Swim' will be starting again in September. Year 1 will have their swimming lessons each Thursday afternoon, so please ensure your child has their swim kit with them. For further swimming information please refer to the school newsletters.
