Welcome to Yellow Class!

I am your teacher is Mrs Canham, and your teaching assistant is Miss Lowe.  We are Year 1! 

We hope you had a wonderful Easter holiday and are excited to start your new learning adventure in the summer term.

Our topic this term asks the question, ‘How does your garden grow?” We will be having lots of fun exploring and linking our learning around a teaching block based on science. We are going to find out about plants and what they need to grow healthy and strong. We will be gardeners and develop our outside learning garden.


We have an educational visit to Hyde Hall planned. On our journey through the garden, we will begin to understand how plants grow and what they need to grow healthily. We will find out about the plants we use in our daily lives, how they change throughout the seasons and explore the garden to discover a variety of plants.

Our P.E. days are Monday and Wednesday. Please bring your P.E. kit to school, but on colder days it will be necessary to wear tracksuit trousers and a warm top in addition to your regular t-shirt and trainers. Please make sure earrings are removed at home and long hair tied up on this day in line with our school PE policy. Thank you. 

Furthermore, please remember to bring, water bottles and book bags to school every day.

Don't forget to keep an eye on dB Primary for an update on what your child is learning in class. We are very much looking forward to the term ahead, please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any queries. 

Take care, 

Mrs Canham
