by Mrs Moorcroft and

Firstly we would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Year 1. We are looking forward to working with both you and your children during the next school year.

Year 1 is a busy year with lots of changes and introductions to school life that will set them up for the rest of their time at Micklehurst.  

Your children will be introduced to new playtime routines and reward schemes. These are explained to your children however if you have any questions and queries please to not hesitate to ask at the end of any day.  

Commando Joe Theme

This term our Commando Joe theme is Traditional tales. These also have links with our history topic of toys and our science topic looking at Materials


P.E will be on a Tuesday with Jeff..

Please ensure your child has P.E kit (shorts t-shirt and pumps) on these days.

These will be kept in school and sent home at each holiday to be washed


Homework will consist of Reading books (at least 3 times a week), spellings and another piece of homework.

Both Spellings and Homework will be given out Wednesday and need returned to school by the Monday.

Teaching your child is a team effort and children benefit greatly from additional support from home. You can support your child by helping them to complete homework, spellings and by listening to them read daily.

Please brings reading books to school EVERYDAY.


Snack – Your child will receive a free piece of fruit/veg and will be given the opportunity to buy additional snack from the school snack shop.
