Croeso i Blwyddn 1 - Welcome to Year 1
We hope you had a lovely relaxing half term break and especially enjoyed the Jubilee celebrations. It is lovely to see the children safe, refreshed and ready for the start of a new term and to hear all their exciting holiday news.
The children were excited to meet our new class caterpillars this week and are looking forward to watch them evolve into beautiful butterflies.
This half term we will be continuing with the topic ‘Competition’, see the Summer Newsletter below for more information.
There are some exciting school events coming up this half term. We have sports day and the Summer Fayre to name a few! Be sure to look out for more information in our weekly school newsletter.
