1 Willow

Hello and welcome to Year 1!


We hope you've all had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to the delights of Year 1!


We have been planning the transition from Reception to Year 1 carefully taking in to consideration the way in which the children had been working and learning in the Early years.  We have therefore decided to adopt elements of a play based approach to the structure of this term, to allow the children to explore and get use to their new environment, as well as to enable them to move forward with their learning. 


We have been truly amazed by the children's enthusiasm and positive attitude these first few days. 


Willow Team:

Teacher - Mr Marquez-Vega

LSA - Mrs Lane 


PE - Wednesday and Thursdays.

Please make sure your child has the correct PE kit (black shorts/leggings; plain white t-shirt, black daps or black trainers) and all items of clothing are labelled.  The children will be encouraged to change, dress and keep their clothes safe.  You can help with this by teaching your child how to fold and put their uniform away each night.


PPA - Every Tuesday morning I will have my PPA time. During this time the children will have Mrs H for Art and Mr Germaine for ICT.


We are always looking for people to help out in class, so if you can spare some time each week, we would love to have you. 


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and see us at the end of the school day or make an appointment to talk to us during another time.
