WELCOME to Year 1 2020-21

Hello, and welcome to our new Year 1 page. On this page you will find a variety of different resources to help you to understanding what your child will be learning; how to support your child and it will also show a snapshot of your child’s experiences in school on a week-to-week basis. We can’t wait to see you all in September, having already spent three wonderful afternoons as our new class.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon,

Mrs Reeve, Miss Fraser and Mrs Poole

 2.Beginning to join (Upper KS1)

 3.Securing joins (Lower KS2)

4.Practising speed and fluency (KS2)

 5.Presentation skills (KS2)
