Year One/Two

Dear Mums, Dads and Carers

We have had a very enjoyable start to the Autumn Term in Year 1/2.

Mrs Gibbons, Miss Hudson and Mrs Wootton would like to welcome you back to the start of another new year at Academy at St James. We hope that you have had a lovely summer break.

Our Year 1/2 team this year are Mrs Gibbons, Miss Hudson and Mrs Wootton, supported by Miss Simpson, Mrs Howroyd, Mrs Cousins, Miss Murphy, Mrs Riley and Mrs Spiers.

Now that your children have made the transition up into Year 1/2, there will be a lot of change in both the pace and the challenge of the work. Expectations will be much higher, and the children will be expected to complete more class work than last year.

The Gigantic Giraffes class are certainly living up to our motto which is ‘standing tall and proud of all we achieve’.

The Magic Meerkats are ready to tackle a new school year and our Resilient Rhinos are ready to start a new term full of resilience for the year ahead.

They have learned lots of new routines and are ready to make progress with their learning and development.
