Year 1

Welcome to our Year 1 classes – Iris and Snowdrop! At the bottom of this page you will find an overview of our learning each half term.

The P.E days will be on Tuesday and Friday throughout the year.


Please ensure that the children wear their tracksuit or have their P.E kit in school on these days. Trainers can be worn as these are often more practical than plimsolls for outdoor activities.

Can children please bring a coat to school everyday as the weather can be very unpredictable.

Staff: Mrs Jones, Mr Thomas, Miss Dunn, and Miss Rooney
