Inspiring and motivating our children
to be the best they can be

Welcome to all our new children and their families moving into Year One this September.

Miss Henshaw(1L), Mrs Sawford and Ms Nichols (1P) and Mrs Watson  (1T) are very much looking forward to teaching you this year!

Our team also includes Mrs Dosanjh,  Mrs Davy, Miss Plarkou, Mrs Shariff and Mrs Ali who are all looking forward to working with you in Year 1. Children may also work with Mrs Littlejones or Mrs Cruickshank, or Miss Garton and Mrs Heard. 


-Sending your child with their book bag every day and ensuring new books return EVERY DAY! We will not be able to give your child a new book if they do not return their book.

-talk about different animals- how are they similar and different? How would you describe them?

Have you been to London? We have started our new topic about London, talk about places you might visit in London and how it is similar and different to Nottingham.

We are learning to write information texts. Watch our model texts read out and see if you can practice at home.
