We are looking forward to an exciting year in Zebra Class.Please be assured that as a school we have put many measures in place to ensure the safety of all of our children and adults. We have made many changes to our indoor and outdoor learning environments and we endeavour to deliver a broad, balanced and fun curriculum to the children. 

At present, there will be no face to face meetings however, please feel free to contact us via email year1@st-edmunds-pri.wilts.sch.uk. 

Term 4 - Welcome Back!

Well..! What a different start to the year we have all had! We are excited to see all of the children return to school on Monday 8th March 2021! We have certainly missed seeing all of your smiley faces! We will spend the first few weeks settling back into school routines and daily life together as a class again. We fully understand that there will be anxieties from both the children and parents. Please be assured that we will do everything we can to ensure that the transition is as smooth and as happy as possible for all. Please do not hesitate to contact us via class dojo if there is anything you would like to discuss. 

Below is an outline of some of the learning that we will be focussing on this term. We will be doing as much learning as possible outside so please ensure that your child has a pair of wellies that can remain in school all of the time and that they come to school with appropriate outerwear for the weather conditions such as coats, hats and gloves. 


Important Information

Please ensure you have read, signed and returned the 'Home School Agreement' and that you have read the 'Positive Behaviour Policy'. 


The children will be given two reading books every Monday, one will be a book carefully matched to your child's current reading level and the other, a story which can be shared together. These can then be kept at home until Friday when they will need to be returned ready for changing ready for thew following week.  Please listen to your child read everyday and record this in their reading diary.  Your child will read to a teacher/teaching assistant each week using the books we have in school and a record will be kept by the class teachers. 


PE will take place on a Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that children WEAR their PE kit to school on these days. We will aim to teach PE outdside as long as the weather permits so please ensure that the children have appropriate clothing for this. 


A healthy snack will continue to be provided daily however, if you wish to send a snack from home please ensure that it is healthy (no crisps or chocolate etc) and is in a clearly labelled pot/bag. Children also need a drinks bottle every day which is clearly labelled with their name.
