Welcome to Year 1

Morning prayer for children before school.




Welcome to the beginning of a new school year.  Mrs Thompson and I are looking forward to working with our wonderful, new Year 1 children and their families.




School Uniform - Please make sure you write your child's name in all school uniform.  As you can imagine, it can be very difficult to match articles of clothing to children if they do not have their name in.  Thank you for your help with this.


PE - Our day for PE is Wednesday.  Please make sure your child's kit is in school every week. (school shorts, t-shirt, black pumps) Again, please make sure all PE kits have their name in.


Homework - The children will be given homework every Friday. Please complete and return homework by the following Tuesday to earn a Class Dojo point.


Home Reading Book - Please support your child by listening to them read every night. Remember to comment and sign their Reading Record.  This year the children can earn points for every book they read at home.  For every five books read, they will receive a reward.  How many books will your child be able to read in a year?

Our Day Out - Museum of Liverpool


Year 1 enjoyed their day out to the Museum of Liverpool where we were able to experience playing with toys and looking at vehicles from the recent past.  A lovely ending to our History topic for the Autumn Term.


India Week

Look at the exciting things Year 1 did during India Week.


Christmas Craft Fun in Year 1.  Our parents and carers came into class for the afternoon to share in making a paper plate Rudolph.

World Book Day 2017


We all dressed up for World Book Day.  Do you recognise who we are?


Parent Craft Afternoon


Thank you to all the parents who came into Year 1 who came into school to work with their own and other children.  To link with our History topic on The Wright Brothers, we made paper aeroplanes and then saw how far they flew.

Kite Flying in Coxteth Park


Year 1 went to Croxteth Park to fly kites.  Our trip was linked with our History Topic on The Wright Brothers.  The Wright Brothers used box kites to develop gliders and then the first powered aeroplane.


Please make sure that your child's Reading Book is in school each day. 

Homework is given out every Friday and must be completed and returned by Tuesday.

PE is each Wednesday. Please ensure your child has their full kit (t-shirt, shorts, black pumps) in school.

Thank you.
