Class 1Y 2018-2019
Welcome to Class 1Y with Mrs Young and Mrs Jones.
The children have settled in well and are now into the routines and day to day business of life in Year 1. They are learning lots and are enjoying all the different subjects they have been exploring. Keep checking the website so that you can stay up to date with what we have been learning.
We were very pleased for 1B who got a reading racetrack trophy for having a staggering 93% of the class who had read at least four times and week and had brought in their reading record books. We do however hope to beat them next time! Please remember to send in your child's reading racetrack book every Friday and make sure you have signed it four times in order for their week to count. Come on 1Y, I know we can do it!!!!
