Year 1

Welcome to Year 1
Teacher - Mr Kean


Dear Parents and Carers,


I hope that you all enjoyed a good break over Easter. It is hard to believe that we are two thirds of the way through the year. We have only been back a few days but we have already begun our new topic in earnest and we have some great learning ahead this term as this letter and topic map sets out. Please especially note the changes to forest school and PE days this term, as set out below.


In term five our topic is “Who was Brunel?” With a specific history focus we will be learning about his life and significant works including the Suspension Bridge, SS Great Britain and Temple Meads Station. We will be putting our own engineering skills to the test with a variety of STEM activities.


Classroom Staff

This term we will have support staff working with specific children on interventions. My PPA time will continue to take place on Wednesday afternoons, during which time the children will have Forest School with Mrs Douglas.


Forest School

As above, the children will be doing forest school every Monday for the remainder of the term. Please ensure your child has a coat, waterproofs (if possible) and wellies. This is a fantastic opportunity for the children and one we are extremely fortunate to be able to offer. To ensure the children get the most out of the experience they must be in the correct clothing. 



If you would like to speak to me during the term, then please do so via the Tapestry or you can book an appointment to speak to me in person. I will respond as quickly as possible.



Please ensure your child is wearing full school uniform on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and that each item is clearly labelled.



*Please note changes* PE sessions this term will take place on Monday and Thursday afternoons. In line with school policy, the children are expected to come to school on Monday and Thursday wearing their PE kits. Their kit should consist of: a white polo, black joggers and black daps.



Attendance and Punctuality

Thank you for supporting us in ensuring that your child is in school and on time. Where possible it is important that children attend school regularly and punctually for the start of the school day.

A reminder that our day starts at 8:55 and collection time is 3:10pm.


Thank you for your continued support, again if you need to contact me or ask me anything then please do so.


Thank you,

Mr Kean
