Year 1 Class

To our lovely new class!

We just wanted to write a letter to say hello and tell you what Year 1 will be like when you return to school in September. We know this term has been a bit different and some of you may be feeling a bit worried about coming back so hopefully this letter will help you feel a bit better about moving into our new class.

When you start Year 1 things will be back to normal except for some small changes to keep you safe. Mr Boyle will be your new class teacher and you will still have familiar faces with you in Mrs Dickinson and Mr Marshall to help you with your learning. We are also very lucky because Mrs Groark will be around for the first couple of weeks to help you all settle in to your new class.

We will all come together and form a bubble. Being in a bubble means we will do all of our learning, singing, relaxing and eating in one place which will be the year 1 classroom. Being in a bubble means that you can’t mix with other bubbles in school but don’t worry, we can always wave and say hello when we see them outside. If you are feeling sad or worried about anything you will always have your same friends in our bubble and you can always ask for help from myself, Mrs Dickinson and Mr Marshall.

When we come into school we will wash our hands for 20 seconds. Being clean is extra important at the moment so we can keep everyone fit and healthy. We are all going to be super cleaners!

Hopefully one day soon we we can pop all the bubbles and enjoy a huge celebration together. Won’t that be a lovely thing to look forward to?

We can’t wait for you start your Year 1 journey with us and I hope you all have a wonderful summer.

From Mr Boyle, Mrs Dickinson and Mr Marshall.
