Welcome to Year One!
Dear children and parents,
Well done for the work we're seeing on Twitter and the online programmes. Keep working through your phonics and maths homework books. Each Friday we are going to challenge you with a Phonics task. Please find these on our class Twitter page. We would love you to get involved and tweet us your learning.
You can access the previous learning grids to complete all the activities. However, pace yourselves! We're in it for the long haul and we'd rather have the learning there for you as you need it. We aren't expecting everything to be done in a week!
To be done properly and to a good standard, more time might be needed on some activities than others and time might be spent over a couple of days to complete some activities.
We want learning to be fun and not stressful for both children and parents.
We miss you all, keep yourselves safe and happy.
Mrs Moran & Mrs Holdsworth

Year One important information:
Mrs Moran will be teaching Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Holdsworth will be teaching Wednesday to Friday. On Wednesday afternoons, Mrs Walton will be in class covering PPA. Mrs Ellis and Miss Scott will be the teaching assistants helping in the class each day.
At break time, a fruit snack continues to be free in Year 1, but milk is chargeable. A letter was sent out before the end of term, but if you missed this, please contact the school office.
If you have any concerns or worries, we will be on the playground in the morning just prior to the bell and immediately after school. We are always happy to arrange a suitable time to meet after school if you have an issue which requires a lengthier discussion.
With best wishes,
Mrs Moran & Mrs Holdsworth
Year One took part in our amazing KS1 Nativity this Christmas. All children played an important role in retelling the story of the birth of Jesus. We are so proud of them all! Superstars!

Year One went to visit the Abbey House Museum at Kirkstall Abbey. It's an exciting trip where the children see what life was like in the Victorian times. They looked at toys and visited the streets where they saw old houses, shops and even a classroom. We compared our items of food from Aldi with the food items in the old Victorian shop.
We had our dinner at Kirkstall Abbey and had a little visit to the toy shop in the afternoon.
We now look forward to inviting our parents and family into school on Wednesday 16th October for our Memory Box afternoon.

Year One went for a walk around our local area and to visit the new Aldi store. We walked up in the sun and took our class bear Inti. When we got to Aldi we had a list of items to find and buy. We looked around the shop to see what items were for sale and the prices they were. We are going to compare Aldi to the shops we see at Abbey House Museum on our school trip next week.
