Well, what a busy first week we had, it was great to see all of you and get to know you!
We had great fun making out split pin birds and sketching dippers using different techniques with our pencils.
I would just like to say how proud Mrs Gallears and I are of each and everyone of you, you have learnt the new routines so well and have worked very hard.






Our next topic is Flight, we will be learning about the 4 countries in the UK, different ways of flying and the invention of the aeroplane.


As as you know our classrooms look a little bit different but they are still bright and colourful!

Listen to a special message from your class teachers.


Hi to all of the new Dippers!

I hope you have had an amazing summer and are looking forward to coming back to school in Year 1.  I’m sure some of you are feeling a little nervous about coming back to school but we are going to have lots of fun and learn lots of new things.

Things will be a little different when you come back, well you’ll be in a new class and have 2 new teachers to start with!  The desks will be laid out a bit differently to how you are used to but you will still be able to work in your groups, chat with your friends and have choosing time.  We will have to make sure we wash our hands regularly – I’m sure you’re all experts at that now!

The first week back we will be getting used to be back in school, reminding ourselves of the school rules and learning all about our class bird – the dipper.  You can find out lots of information about it here – https://www.rspb.org.uk/birds-and-wildlife/wildlife-guides/bird-a-z/dipper/

Enjoy the last week of the holidays and we’ll see you very soon!
