Year 1 C/O’K

Welcome to Year 1

We would like to warmly welcome you to Year 1.

Our teachers this year are Mrs Carson (Monday to Wednesday) and Mrs O’Keeffe (Thursday and Friday) and our teaching assistant is Mrs Stephenson.

We are always learning lots of new and exciting things in Year 1. We aim to provide a happy learning environment where the children will develop a love of learning and become enthusiastic and independent learners.

We strive to encourage the children to be the best they can be and seek to provide a wide range of learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.

We know that the children will be happy each day if they come prepared and are ready for the school day. Please can we ask that they bring their red study bag and reading book, a water bottle and a coat each day.  PE is on Friday, so your child will need their P.E. kit in school (white top, red shorts and black plimsolls) and also a pair of wellies for our outdoor learning.

Our school motto is ‘Christ be our light and our guide’. In Year 1, we teach the children to follow Jesus’ example by encouraging them to be kind, caring and respectful towards others.

If you have any questions at any time, please do not hesitate to have a word with us.

Thank you for your support.

Mrs Carson, Mrs O’Keeffe and Mrs Stephenson
