Welcome to Aspen Class in Year 1!  Our teacher is Miss Shirra. Mrs Hoult teaches us on a Tuesday morning.  

We have PE on Tuesday and Thursday. Our PE kit is:

  • white t-shirt
  • royal blue shorts
  • jogging bottoms
  • jumper or hoodie
  • trainers
  • Please write my name on all my PE clothes and uniform as I don't want to lose them.
  • On PE days we can't wear earrings and girls with long hair should have it tied back. 

Spelling and Maths homework is sent home every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. It is important that I read every day for ten minutes. When I read to you, a sibling or family member please write the date and your initials and if you have time a short comment to let my teachers know how I'm getting on with my reading.

Welcome back!

April SHIRRA (april.shirra) on: Aspen Class Blog

Welcome back to school everyone, hope you all had a lovely, relaxing summer. 

We have had a fantastic first week back, the children have settled into their new classroom really well. I was pleased to see that so many children had remembered to bring their PE kits. Can parents please make sure that these are named. Some of us took a very long time to get changed, make sure you are practising these skills at home. 

As the weather is starting to get colder children need to start to be able to fasten their own coats at playtime. 

Thank you, 

Miss Shirra
