Transition into Year 1
I can't believe the time has come for you to move to Year 1. It has been a brilliant and unique year.
The Year 1 teachers Mrs Taylor, Miss Lockham and Mrs Horridge have been busy creating virtual tours for you to see your new classroom. You can view them on Google Classroom. There is also a presentation with information about Year 1.
