Year 1

Happy Easter! 

It is the final day of the spring term! We’re sure it wasn’t exactly how you were imagining it would be but we are so amazed at the wonderful resilience of everyone in these strange times. Well done #teamstjames’ !

We’ve had some fantastic feedback about the Oxford Owl website, remember that this is a wonderful resource to have up your sleeve whenever you may need it. This has been added to the Year 1 key websites along with a number of others that you may find useful in the coming weeks.

If you would like to keep working through the word walls with your child, please find them below:

However, the biggest message we would like to get across to you today is how truly grateful we are for your support, enthusiasm and engagement throughout these first two weeks of Virtual School. These are very different times to anything we have ever experienced before and we know many of you are juggling lots of different circumstances but I can genuinely say how proud we are of all the learning that is taking place at home and without your support this would not have been as successful as it has.

We hope you all enjoy a very calm and quiet Easter break and most importantly you all remain safe and well.

We look forward to joining forces with you again in the summer term.

With best wishes,

Miss Bowen and Miss Brennan
