A message for the most amazing Year 1's EVER:

Keep going ... we are nearly there. The learning you have been doing at home is brilliant and those back at school have adapted amazingly to a new way of life in Oak Class. Every smiley face, every hand up, every worksheet completed,  every colourful drawing, every word written means... you never gave up! You persevered and made it through quite the strangest Year 1 there will hopefully ever be ... ? 

As we carry on through the next couple of weeks we will be talking about the future; the move to year 2!  The thought of this transition may seem harder than usual as we are all feeling a little unsettled already. But we know that this little lot of Oak class will absolutely take it in their stride. They are ready and will be supported to spread their learning wings and succeed as they move on up through the school...

If you have any questions as always contact us on SeeSaw or via the class email address ...
