Year 1 Learning. Term 6, Week 6


This week:

Annual Reports will be sent home on Wednesday of this week.

  • You will find below a grid showing the sessions to be taught each week. They mostly follow the exact days, although will differ slightly class to class as when we have our PE slots.
  • Could you please make sure children have a change of shoes suitable for PE in their PE kits as most of our PE will be outside this term. Thank you.

We will always aim to get outside, whatever the weather, as much as possible so children will really need a waterproof coat each day.
