Mrs Muddara (Care Assistant)



We are so proud of the way the year one children have settled into class so far this year. They are all superstars! We have some very exciting things happening this year and can not wait to work with you all to make this year very happy and successful. If you have any concerns or queries please pop in to see one of the team. We want to help all of the children in year one be happy. 




Important Information:


  • Our PE days are Tuesday and  Thursday. Please can you ensure your child has their PE kit and that all items are labelled correctly. 
  • Spellings will be given out every Friday. Your child will be tested the following Friday. Children who get all their spelling correct will receive a spelling certificate. Keep a look out to see whether your child is the spelling bee! This will be announced by text every Wednesday and is for children who are applying their spellings into their writing. 
  • Homework will be given out every Friday and is expected to be returned by the following Thursday.
  • We really can not stress the importance of listening to your child read at least three times a week. It is also really beneficial if you read to them too. The children are already starting to make great progress in their reading, but we want them to get even better!
