Year 1 (Miss Liddle)

Summer Term

13th July 2020

 

So, this is our very last week of the school year.  It's been lovely to see some of you in school, and hopefully we can enjoy some sunshine for our last week before we break up for the summer holidays.

Can you believe you're going to be leaving year 1 and moving into year 2?  It doesn't seem such a long time ago that you were starting in nursery and reception.  I'm hoping you've seen the letter on the webpage from Mr Bursnall to let you know who your teacher is next year.  You are going to be with Mrs Taylor, and you will have Mrs Marlow and Mrs Kirkpatrick in your classroom to help too.  I'm sure they will all be busy planning lots of lovely things for you to do next year.

 

Your activities for this week are just below, so have alook and see what you can do this week.  If we don't see you in school this week, your new teacher will be giving you a ring to talk to you before the holidays.

Hi everyone

We’re nearly at the end of our school year already.  Many of the year 1 children are back in school for the last two weeks.  This means Miss Liddle is very busy teaching them.  For the next two weeks, I will be setting some work for you all to do at home.  It would be great to see if you can complete some of the activities.

I’ve been very busy during lockdown, teaching my own children at home, and working in the hub at school.  It’s very quiet without you all there but hopefully we can all be back together in September.

Have fun with some of the activities and I’ll post some more for the last week.
