Striving to be the best we can!
Welcome to Year One
Hello everybody! We hope you are having a lovely half term break and enjoying this gorgeous weather.
Next week, we will be seeing some of you back at school. Tomorrow, the teachers are heading back to the classrooms to arrange the tables and chairs and make the rooms nice and safe. We will take some photographs of them when they're ready so you can spot the differences.
We hope you are all ok! Stay safe and enjoy this time with your families.

In addition to the reading books, below is a link for free live Phonic lessons that will be streamed daily. This is the same program that we use in school so they couldn't be more perfect. Please aim for the set 2 or 3 sessions.
