Year 1



Autumn Term in Year One. 

Home learning and support will play an integral role in your child’s learning. You should all be connected with your Year 1 class via Class dojo and you will have seen a video from your new teacher already. 

For further information on life in Year One, lease follow the link below to watch the 'New to Year One' presentation

Please keep an eye on class dojo for updates on your child’s behaviour, daily information and your child’s day at school. As you will be aware already, there has been changes to the school rules, routines and expectations. Therefore, it is also important that you look out for updates on the whole school Class dojo.

We will be introducing the home learning gradually throughout this term and will keep you updated through class Dojo. There will also be a variety of online resources for your child to use at home.  

A key priority will be the relationships between teachers and parents to ensure that the children are fully supported at home and at school. Communication is a crucial part of this process so please do not hesitate to contact your teacher, year leader or myself if you have any questions or worries
