Hello Kingfishers,

We have had a fantastic full week as Year 1. You have been wonderful at remembering our new class rules!

Your child will be sent home in their PE kit on a Wednesday. Please return this as soon as possible as we have PE later in the week. Thank you!

Next week we will be continuing with our Flight topic.

Have a lovely weekend and I will see you all on Monday morning.

Hi Kingfishers,

What a wonderful week we have had. We have learned all about our class bird and I was so impressed by all of the facts you already knew! It has been lovely getting to know each of you and I hope that you have enjoyed your first week as Year 1.

Our topic next week is Flight.

Have a fantastic weekend,

Miss Parsons


Our classrooms look a little different since we have returned to school, however they are still bright and colourful (and beginning to fill up with our fantastic work!) 


Listen to a special message from your class teacher.

Hi Kingfishers,

I hope that you have had a fantastic summer! I look forward to hearing all of the lovely things that you have been doing.

We return to school on Tuesday 1st September, ready for us to start our journey as Kingfishers together. I am super excited, are you?

Things in our classroom will be a little different to what it was like before we finished school. The desks are laid out differently, but don’t worry, you will still be working alongside your friends and will have free time to choose activities and have a chat. One thing that is very important is that we wash our hands regularly and make sure that we clean them properly (I think you will be fabulous at this!)

During our first week we will be learning about our class bird, do you know any facts about kingfishers that you could share?

You can find out some facts using this link –


Enjoy the rest of your time off. I look forward to seeing you all soon!

Miss Parsons

  • Book bags and reading books should be sent into school each day. Your child will also have books allocated to them on Bug Club.
  • All of your child’s belongings should have their name on, this includes PE kits, book bags, coats and water bottles.
  • Our PE days are Monday and Thursday each week. Children should have both their indoor and outdoor PE kits in school at all times.



Useful websites

Bug Club –

All children have been allocated books on Bug Club to read. Childrens reading books will be collected in and there are plenty of books available on the children’s accounts on Bug Club that they can read. Their individual log in details are in the front of their reading record books.


Purple Mash –

Children all have their personal log in details in their reading record book for purple mash. The children all know how to navigate purple mash and there are lots of learning resources available.

Oddizzi is an e-learning resource and community that immerses children in the real world. There are lots of geography resources available for the children to access at home. Their log in details are in their reading record books.
