Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


Class Teacher - Miss Moores

Classroom Assistants - Mrs Groves, Mrs Shorrocks and Mrs Mooney




Year 1 have adopted the Gospel value & virtue of 'friendship' and 'hope'.

Friendship - John 15:15

Jesus said: I do not call you servants any more because a servant does not know what his master is doing. I speak to you as friends because I have told you everything that my Father has told me.

God wants to be your friend, give you good advice, and to be close to you when you need him.

Hope - Ephesians 1:2

Let us, who were first to hope in the Lord, praise God's glory!

Everybody has hope in something; the people who believe in God hope to see God one day.




Class information:


The school gate is open from 8.45 until 8.55am. Mrs Albon will greet your child at the gate and the children will walk into school independently.

We would like to encourage as many children as we can to try the free school meals which are cooked on our premises by our kitchen staff. We will help the children to make their meal choices and to cut up the food on their plates.

The school day will finish at 3.15pm. Please wait on the path to the main entrance of the school to collect your child.


Monday - PE day - Children to come to school dressed in their PE kit (Green school T-shirt, green shorts, pumps or trainers with velcro.) They will wear their PE kit all day in school. You may provide jogging pants if the weather is cold.


Snack - We provide fruit/vegetables at play time for children. We try to encourage the children to try a range of healthy foods.


Tissues - Please could you provide a box of tissues. You will be surprised how many tissues the children go through each week! However, it is important that we keep germs away and we teach the children to catch their sneezes and wipe their noses.


Water bottles - Please could your child bring a water bottle each day to school. We will keep it topped up with water when it gets empty. We encourage the children to drink plenty of water each day. (No juice or fizzy drinks).


Names on jumpers/cardigans - Please could you ensure that your child's name is clearly labelled on their school jumpers and cardigans. Please make sure your child knows where their name is so they will be able to spot it when they put their jumper or cardigan on in school. The iron-on, sew-on or sticky labels are much longer lasting than writing names with a biro which washes off. (In the past, some parents have sewn a coloured button on the inside of the jumper, on the tag, so that their child can clearly identify their jumper!)


Book bags - Please bring book bags to school on Thursdays to collect new reading books. Homework may also be given out on Thursdays.
