St. James' CE Primary School

Welcome to Year 1

OUR TOPIC NEXT TERM WILL BE 'BEES'

If you have time over the half term, do go and see an apiary in London - there are LOADS! It would be a great way to introduce children to the topic and we are sure they are going to love it.

 

 

 

Year 1 Phonics Screening

As you know, Year 1 will be doing their statutory phonics screenings during the week commencing 11th June. There is a parent/guardian meeting giving information all about this on 9th May 4.45pm at Old Jamaica Road. In advance of this meeting, we have posted at the bottom of this page a helpful guide telling you all about the screenings and also a list of flash words that you can print out and use at home. We hope these will be helpful to you in the run up to the June tests. We hope you find this information helpful and look forward to seeing you at the meeting on the 9th.
