Y1 - Panther

Welcome to Year One!

Our Teacher is Miss Beak and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Fortune. In the afternoons Miss Withers comes to read with us. We have lots of exciting topics planned for this year, starting with Our Environment in Term one. We have phonics, English and Maths each morning and topic, swimming or PE in the afternoon. We will also have lots of fun too! We will have play time in the morning and in the afternoon, wake and shake and lots of toys to play with.


Days to remember...

PE is on a Monday and swimming is on a Tuesday afternoon. Please remember to bring in kit. It may be a good idea to bring in PE kits and leave them in School. Also please remember that if your child wears earrings then they need to be taken out for PE.


From the Teacher: Miss Beak

This will be my third year at Barley Close and I am very happy to be teaching Year 1 again. I have been lucky enough to get to know lots of the children through enrichment sessions last year so there should be a smooth transition for them into Year 1.

In my spare time I like to dance and used to do a lot of performances and shows. However as I am getting older now, I still dance to keep fit. Last year I took a group of children to the Colston Hall to perform in Stages 2014. This was a wonderful experience and created some lovely memories for those involved. I am hoping to take another group this year.



Could I ask all the children to bring in a plastic carrier bag on Monday 13th July. We will be sending home all of the children's exercise books from the year and it is easier to group them altogether.

Many thanks in advance!
