Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 at New Scotland Hill!



Hello and Welcome to Year 1,


Our P.E days for Summer term are: Monday and Wednesday. On these days, please come into school wearing your P.E kits.


Can I recommend that whenever possible each child has a set of spares shoes that can be kept in school.


We do plan for as much learning outdoors as possible! So can all children dress for the unpredictability of the British weather (coats, scarfs, hats, gloves, wellies).
