Welcome to the Spring Term in Class 1

Dear Class 1, 


I hope that you have all had a lovely break, and that you are well rested and excited for our fantastic term ahead, in Year 1! I am really looking forward to seeing you all again and helping you to build on your super learning!


I know that it is disappointing that we are not able to be together in the classroom for a little while. But, as a school, we have all been working really hard to ensure that you all have the same wonderful learning opportunities, whether you are in the class or carrying out your learning remotely. 


I am so impressed with how everyone has made the switch from Tapestry to Seesaw. This is very helpful as we will be using this as our remote learning platform. I will be posting daily Phonics, Mathematics and English lessons as well as learning in other curriculum areas, including Collective Worship. The lessons will contain videos, links and resources that will enable you to complete your learning each day and then upload it, so that I can see and let you know how you are getting on!


Each day we will have a Google Meet, so that we can all see and speak to each other in person, and I can also provide some ‘live teaching’ for you. I will send you a timetable with the time slot of our Google Meet separately.


During this term we will be getting stuck into our Character Education Research Project. We have some amazing projects planned that focus on the United Nations Sustainable Global Goals. The project will help us to learn about and develop our character virtues. The focus for this term, in our journey to become ‘Inspiring Change-makers’, will be on developing our confidence and assertiveness!


Your parents will have already received lots of information about uniforms, drop-off and pick-up times, lunches, wrap around care and all kinds of other grown up things that I won’t repeat here, but in a nutshell, we will be starting and finishing at 8:45am and 3:30pm respectively.  


You will need to wear your school uniform everyday, adapted for Daily Physical Activity, except for Tuesdays when you will have PE with Mr Waldron and you will need to wear your PE kit for the day. 


I am really looking forward to seeing you all again and to our exciting term ahead – even if this is just virtually to begin with! 


Very best wishes, 


Mrs Drew
