Year 1 Sports Day

Although Sports Day will not take place as a whole school event this year, each year group will still be carrying out their own mini events over the next few weeks. Our Year 1 ‘Sports Day’ will be taking place on Monday 5th July. All the children should come to school wearing their PE kits and bring sun cream and a sun hat if necessary.

Finally, please may we remind you that you can contact either of us on our class email addresses should you have any questions.

Monday 12th July – surprise!

On Monday 12th July, we are looking forward to a surprise afternoon that we are planning for the children. We are very excited for this! 🙂

Best wishes,

Mr. Storer and Mrs. Johnston
