Welcome to Year 1! We are so happy to see you all again after the summer holidays! Our first topic of the academic year is Out and About. The children will be learning about their local area and where Popley is in the United Kingdom.

Please remember to write in the pink reading diaries every time you read at home and tick any keywords that your child can read by sight.
There are logins for Google Classroom, Bug Club, Mathletics, and EdShed in the front of the pink reading diaries.
We look forward to working with you!
