Message from your new teachers

Hello to our new Year 1s!

We’re so excited to have you back in September. We’ve seen some of your around school throughout the year and we’ve glimpsed some of you in your bubbles. However, because we can’t meet you properly, we’ve made a transition booklet so we can learn a little bit about you before September. You can do the tasks on a computer or print them out and complete them with a pencil and paper. If you have anything you would like to show us them please send it to

We hope you have a lovely holiday over the next few weeks. Relax, play and have fun! If you have any questions or worries about Year 1, or just want to get in touch, then please use the e-mail address above.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Year 1!

Tell us all about you. We want to know why you are, who you live with, what your hobbies are, what food you like….anything you would like to tell us! You can complete this task in your home school book. When you start in Year 1 you will get your own Learning Log book. Below are the expectations o that you can do your first Year 1 piece of work. We can’t wait to find out all about you. 🙂

Key Things to be Practising Ready for Year One

  • Reading- Keep reading as much as possible over your summer holidays. You can even practice your phonics using the videos on the Year 1 page.
  • Writing – Write as much as you like but make sure your writing always has capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. Use the handwriting sheet on the transition pages to make sure you are forming your letters correctly. (This will make learning joined up writing so much easier!)
  • Maths – Practice your number bonds to 10. You could even start counting to 20!
  • Don’t forget to keep practising how to get yourself dressed, zipping up your own coat and eating with a knife and fork. These are really important skills you will need when you come back to school.
