Google Expedition

Welcome to year 1

Highlights from the Spring Term

We were really fortunate to have Google come into school and share their virtual reality videos with us. Year 1 were too young to use the binoculars but thoroughly enjoyed using the iPads to explore under the sea and the Antarctic. Look at their faces in awe of the experience!


Our P.E. days are Monday and Friday. We strongly suggest that children keep their P.E. kit in school to avoid forgetting it. We will then remind children to take their P.E. kits home each half-term holiday for washing.

Reading books will be sent home daily. All children should try and read at home at least three times per week – please could you record this in their reading diary. It is important that reading books are in school every day so that we can hear the children read and change their books when necessary. The high-frequency purse words will continue to be changed on a regular basis. Once your child has learned to read their purse words they will concentrate on learning to spell them accurately.
