Welcome to Year 1

Our teacher is Miss Corradine and our teaching assistant is Mrs French.





 

Hi! We can't have real hugs but we can still have real fun in Year One!


Summer Term

The weather is getting better so  please ensure your child has a labelled water bottle in school everyday and is wearing sun cream/a sunhat on those lovely sunny days. To help keep track of your belongings, please label all of your children’s clothes and bags, including their P.E. kit. Our PE days are still Wednesdays and Fridays.
