Welcome to Year 1
For 2021/22 we have two classes in Year 1 taught by Mrs Clifton and Miss Backhouse and supported by Teaching Assistant Mrs Ayres, and Miss Grundy. Doors to the classes open from 8.45am when staff are ready to welcome and settle the children into their learning activities. Registration is at 8.55am. Lunch is from 12.00 – 1.00pm. Children who go home to lunch should return between five and ten minutes before the start of their afternoon lessons at 1.00pm.
The afternoon session finishes at 3.15pm. Children usually leave classes within 5 minutes of these end times and will be handed over to parents/carers from the classroom doors which open onto the playground.
Please can you send PE kit in to school on a Monday and we will send it home on a Friday. Children need clothing suitable for the outdoors half term. Please also send a carrier bag for muddy shoes as we will be on the field for some sessions. Spare socks might also be useful. Please can you ensure long hair is tied back on PE days. Miss Backhouse’s class have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday. Mrs Clifton’s on a Tuesday and Wednesday.
Please can you make sure we have a list of who is picking up your child from school if it is not a parent and the days they pick up, even if it is the same as last year. If these arrangements change as you swap days we will need to be notified. Please can you make sure if you have arranged for someone else to pick up who doesn’t regularly pick up that you let us know that day.
