Welcome to Year 1A Miss Kirkham



Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to the spring term. We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday. 

This term in our Learning Challenge Curriculum our questions will be, ‘What do aliens think of life on planet earth?’ (science) and ‘What’s the weather like in winter?’ (geography).  In science we will focus on which materials would be suitable for an alien to build a house with if they came to live on earth.

In geography we will be learning about the seasons and the different weather associated with each one.  We will be looking at how the weather is different in winter.


 Miss Kirkham’s P.E day will now be on Wednesday morning and Mr Burton’s will be on Thursday morning. Please make sure that your child has the correct PE kit in school and that earrings are removed as staff are not allowed to remove them and children are not permitted to do PE in earrings for safety reasons.


Please make sure every item of uniform and PE kit is named so that we can get the correct items back to you should they be misplaced.


The Key Stage 1 entrance door opens at 8.35am closes at 8.45am; after this time please go to the office for a late mark.

Reading and Homework

 Thank you to those of you who read with your child every night and send homework back in on time. Please send reading books and homework books to school every day. Please don’t forget to read online with your child using Bug Club.  Go to www.activelearnprimary.co.uk  and log in using your child’s personal log in which is stuck into their reading diaries.

Winter weather.

As it is winter, please ensure children come to school in suitable shoes, coats and jumpers, all with names in please.


Thank you for your continued support,

The Year 1 Team.

Miss Kirkham, Mr Burton, Mrs Payne, Mrs Rushton, Mrs Hills
