Year 1 - Mrs Baxter and Miss Winder

Dear Year 1 children, parents and carers,


Well here we are at the end of the second week of school closure and home school. It seems strange that today marks the end of the Spring Term and the start of the Easter Break. 


 Thank you to everyone who has been staying in touch via email. We really have enjoyed seeing what you are getting up to. Seeing your photos and videos is a real pleasure.


We will be back with lots more ideas for you after you enjoy your break. Don't eat too much chocolate!


Our email addresses are below. Please feel free to email us any questions you may have about the activities we post on here. We’ll endeavour to reply to you as soon as we can. We can’t wait to see your photos


Miss Winder -

Mrs Baxter -


Best wishes,


Mrs Baxter & Miss Winder


Email Communication Statement

As a school we recognise the value of providing email addresses for parents to communicate non-urgent issues with members of staff. At Thomas Jolyffe teachers are free to check their emails as they wish in order to fit to their own preferred work pattern but are not expected to check while they are teaching, while they are at home, or at weekends - so response times may vary. We believe that 48 working hours is a reasonable length of time to receive a considered reply. Urgent matters are best discussed face to face or via the school office, who will ensure the message is delivered as quickly as possible. As with all messages, the meaning and tone may vary depending on who is reading it. Please consider this before choosing to email any member of staff. We would also encourage all parents to consider information sent to teachers regarding other children very carefully as this can be requested by other parents under the rules governing GDPR.



You will have seen on the TV that there are to be some brand new hospitals for people needing medical care when they have Covid-19. There is a request for children to help make these Nightingale Hospitals brighter, happier places for staff and patients by making pictures of rainbows and other lovely things. Your artwork needs to be A4 size so that it can be laminated for hygiene purposes. 

Send your artwork to:

Rainbows for Nightingale
