Welcome back everyone! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.

1P have come back to school with big smiles, bags of enthusiasm and are eager to get started with our new topic, ‘Home and Away’.

This term we will be exploring our environment and comparing it to other places in the world. We are very interested in anywhere you have been or are going to and welcome you to bring in anything for our ‘Travel Agents’ role play area.

We would like to use this opportunity to remind you that every child needs a water bottle in school please!

As always, if you have any queries, please just ask!

Mrs Pirnie and Mrs Rippon.

Handy reminders:

  • Reading Diaries will be given back out in weeks 1 & 2 and should be in school every day even if your child has not read to you yet so we can comment on their reading and keep you updated about our focus for the week. Sometimes reading days will change due to circumstances.
  • PE kits should be in school by Monday 11th September and stay in school until half term. PE days will usually be Monday and Tuesday, however, these may change due to different events happening in and around school. PE kit should contain a pale blue T-shirt, black/navy shorts and appropriate footwear.
  • Water bottles – all children should have a water bottle in school that they take home on a Friday and bring back on Monday. We are trying to reduce the spread of germs and using a cup does not help this.
  • Uniform and PE kit should have your child’s name inside of each item to avoid mix-ups.
