Year One

Dear families, 

Unfortunately we haven’t been able to have our proper transition lessons to get to know each other before you start in Year 1 in September. Don’t worry as Mrs Donaldson has been telling me all about you and I can't wait to meet you as your new teacher, I’m sure we will have great fun!

Mrs Donaldson will be ringing you soon to arrange a time to come into school on Monday 6th July to collect your Reception books and school report. I will be there to say hello and collect any “tell us all about you” sheets which Mrs Bruce has mentioned in the school assembly video (29th June 2020), this information will be most helpful when preparing of our learning topics.

Our first topic in September will be “What makes me amazing?” Have a think about some of the amazing things you have already learnt in Reception and any special skills or talents you would like to show me when you join me in Year 1. I can’t wait to see my superheroes in action.  

Just in case you may have any worries about moving up into Year 1, those feelings are quite natural, so please talk to me or a parent, and I’m sure we can sort it out together.

My email address is colin.wonders@amblefirst.northumberland.sch.uk , please contact me if you wish to discuss any concerns or worries before coming back to school.

I’m looking forward to seeing you soon.  

Colin Wonders
