Dear Year 1 children, parents and carers,


As we are nearing the end of term, you will notice that we have added a weekly 'Transition Activity'. Completing this task will support your child as they move from Year 1 to Year 2. If you would like to share the completed task with your child's new teacher you can email them at the address below:


1W to 2ES: Mrs O'Sullivan/ Mrs Evans  /

1B to 2C Mr Crocker -



Please don't feel you have to do everything we suggest. Use your own judgement to choose what suits you, yourself and your circumstances. These times are tough enough for some and we don't want to add to your stress. We just aim to support you with ideas and guide you through the curriculum as best we can remotely.


If you miss an activity that you liked the look of but didn't have time to do, you can find the past week's activities in the 'ARCHIVE' section, towards the bottom of this page.


Thank you to everyone who has been in touch by email. We love to hear from you and see all of your lovely photos. 

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.



Here are some great websites. They cover a range of learning and we hope you'll find them very useful.     

This website is one we teachers use lots! It covers the whole curriculum and offers powerpoint presentations, games and lots of other activities. You can access the resources free of charge for a month, using the access code: PARENTSTWINKLHELPS                                BBCbitesize
