Astwood Bank Primary School

"A centre of learning and opportunity"



Welcome to Year 1

BOOK BAGS – We ask these to be sent in every Wednesday with books ready to exchange.

Dear Parents/Carers,

We hope you and the children are well rested after the Easter break and ready to get back into the swing of things. This half term our topic is called ‘All at Sea’. We will be exploring lots of different mini topics within the 6 weeks such as materials, floating, sinking, how to look after our oceans, Vincent Van Gough and best of all… PIRATES! We are hoping to have a pirate come in and join us for the day where the children will get a chance to dress up as pirates and have a fun filled pirate activity day; more details about this to follow.
