A very warm welcome to Year 1
Welcome back! I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable summer holiday.

· During the colder months, the children are able to bring in a tracksuit and trainers.
Please be prompt for an 8.40am start, otherwise children miss their morning activities.
Children are expected to read at home every night. Please let us know by filling in their reading records which will be checked on a Wednesday.
PE kits must come into school every Monday.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and is expected back on a Wednesday.
All children should be coming in with a book bag and a water bottle.
Polite notice, the children do not need rucksacks in year 1 as they take up too much room in the classroom.
