There is also information about the adults you will meet in class 1 written by last year's Year 1 during Lockdown in July. 

Due to Covid 19 our plans are going to be a little different,

maybe a little later on, this year but we shall make sure you feel ready to join us when we can. 


Things to prepare doing for September


taking off / putting on jumpers / socks & shoes -

this is good practice for developing strong fine motor skills. It is often a shock to some new starters when they have to try putting on their own socks!

Also we may have to try and work at a distance so this year it will be all the more necessary. 


counting up/ back from 10 and recognising the digits out of order.


recognising and writing your name



Our new starters enjoyed their visits to school in July 2019.

See them below with their buddies. This year these new starters (who are mainly not in uniform) will be your buddies. They may have to wait a little longer to see you but they are very excited about meeting you!
