Year 1

Hello everyone! Welcome to Year 1, I know we are going to have lots of fun together! It was fantastic to see you at our transition morning and on Teams. I hope you are feeling a little less worried about moving into Year 1 and are just as excited to get started as I am.

If you are feeling worried or nervous about coming back to school in September, that is okay, everybody feels like that sometimes! We can talk about any worries you have and I will do my best to make the butterflies in your tummy disappear.

Now you are in Year 1 you will receive a login for MyMaths. At Pikemere we use MyMaths to set homework for you each week and we do this all the way up to Year 6. Every week you can log on to MyMaths to complete the task set by me and I will check who has done it. Dojo’s will be given out to the children who complete their MyMaths at home! 🙂
