'Learning Together, Being Our Best'

Year 1: Donaldson Class

Welcome to Year 1

Class Teacher: Miss Bowness

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Woodhall and Mrs Weatherall


Hello Year 1 and welcome back to an exciting school year. I know you have all had a fantastic summer and I am very pleased with how hard you have been trying in your first few weeks of school.


We are going to be learning lots of new and interesting things this half term.

In Maths we will be practising our counting skills and our number facts. In English we will be improving our writing using full stops and capital letters and we will be doing lots of phonics activities to help our reading. We are going to be starting a new Geography topic which is all about where we live.   


I'm looking forward to a great year and I hope you are too.
