Year 1 and 2

Welcome to Year 1 and 2

Welcome back! We hope that you have all had a wonderful Summer break. We are all looking forward to the new academic year and have been delighted to see the children returning to school so enthusiastically. We are also very happy to see so many new faces to KS1, we hope you feel very welcome at St Oswald’s.

The new KS1 topic this half-term is ‘Marvellous Me!’ and we will be finding out what makes each of us marvellous!  We will begin by learning about our bodies and will we link this to the ‘Funnybones’ stories by Janet and Allan Ahlberg in Literacy.
