What we are learning...

Our current topic is called 'Canals'. We really enjoyed our trip to Portland Basin on Tuesday 21st November! We learnt all about Ashton-Under-Lyne in the past and why canals were so important for transporting goods. We also got the chance to take a trip along the Ashton Canal on a narrow boat; this included going through a lock! 

Canal Facts!

Reading Update

We will be going back to changing reading books on a daily basis. This will begin on Monday 20th November. Please ensure your child brings their reading book and record to school each day. If you have any questions, please speak to one of the Y1 team at the end of the school day.

Thank you!

A Quick Reminder!

Please can you make sure your child's name/initials have been written on the label/inside their school jumpers and t-shirts. It is extremely difficult to locate an owner for lost uniform without a name! 

 

Many thanks,
