Welcome to Year 1! Croeso i Flwyddyn 1!


We would like the welcome the children back to school.  We have missed them all very much.  We are trying to keep school as 'normal' as possible however there are some changes we need to make you aware of.  We have a staggered drop off time between 8:45-9:00am and pick up time is 3pm. Please stand behind the yellow line when dropping off and picking your child up in order to maintain social distancing.  Breakfast club is now being held in the classroom.  If you would like your child to attend please drop them off between 8:30-8:45am. The children are encouraged to maintain good hygiene whilst in school and will be washing their hands on a regular basis.



Our class teacher is Miss Young and our Learning Support Assistant is Mrs Matthews.  We have lots of fun learning in Year 1 and enjoy planning our lessons during 'Busy Bee' planning time where we share our 'pupil voice'.


Class Routines

If you would like your child to receive snack, please pay £1.25 weekly or 25p per day. P.E is every Monday, please send your child to school wearing their PE kit.  



Unfortunately we cannot send book bags home at the moment. It is still vitally important to read with your child every day.  The children will be bringing home key words to practise with you.  It is important to practise these with your child as they will help improve their reading.

Your teacher will create an online classroom and invite your child to the class or sent a code out via School. As well as using Google Classroom to complete tasks within school –we will create and assign homework tasks via Google Classroom too! Your child has their own username and password - they can access Google Classroom via the internet on any device.

It is important to practise these key words at home with your child.
