Year 1



Year One, we are so incredibly proud of you all for your inspirational resilience, determination and positivity. We have absolutely loved seeing your smiling faces via our video teaching sessions last half term and we have seen how hard you have been working. You are all amazing and I am so proud to be your teacher, well done.

We do not have homework in Year One but we do expect you to read at home to an adult every night. Reading to a grown up is so much fun!



Please remember to ask them to write it in your message book! We will change your book for you once you have finished reading it. Do you have a favourite book?


Our Class Author is David McKee. Do you already know some of his books? Our favourite book is Elmer. 





In Year One we also learn about an Inspirational Person. An Inspirational Person is someone who has helped or motivated lots of people. This year we will be learning about a man called William Hillary. He looked like this:



He was inspirational because he started the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution). He would save people from the sea when they were in danger. He would travel to them in his boat and take them back to shore to safety.



We will find out more information about William Hillary at school. If you would like to learn about him at home too then please ask an adult to help you.
