Transition Activities

Transition Activities

At this time of Year at school, we would be spending time together to reflect on our time in Year 1 and look forward to meeting our new teacher's. This is something we can still do at home.

When you come back to school in September, you will spend lots of quality time with Miss James or Miss Elliott getting to know each other. You might already be thinking about your new teacher, so we’ve put together a list of activities you might like to complete this week or over the Summer break.

·        You could create a Year 1 memory book of your favourite things we did and learnt about. You could add pictures or drawings of your friends, be as creative as you would like!

·        Try creating a bucket list of books you want to read over the Summer and tell your new teacher all about.

·        Write your own profile to give to your teacher to let them know all the amazing things about you!

·        You could use the template underneath to create a new class passport.

There are lots of other things you might want to try to help you feel ready to start your new class. Remember if you have any worries, it’s important to tell your grown ups. Please email if you want to contact Mrs Clark or Mrs Hodgson

Maths Day 1: 13.07.20

Good morning Year 1

I can’t believe it is the last week before the Summer break.

I will post your Maths learning as normal this week, but your English might look a little different. I have also posted some transition activities you could complete to help you start to think about some the changes you will have when you start Year 2 in September.
