St Brigid's RC Primary School

Years 1 & 2

Welcome to Years 1 & 2!

In Key Stage 1 we are happy, creative and enthusiastic learners. Our teachers are Mr Kilner, Miss Flanagan and Miss Price, we are also very lucky to have Mr Cotton.  Mrs Jones is the Year 1 and Year 2 Phase leader. 

 

In Key Stage 1 we have been getting very excited about learning and we hope to read lots of exciting books through out the year.

If you have any concerns please speak to the class teacher or arrange an appointment with the office.

We are looking forward to the exciting year ahead!

 

 

Please ensure that reading books are in every day.  Reading for 10 minutes every night really makes a difference to how well your child will be able to read. 

 

Please also ensure that PE kits are in school.

 

As a result of the school's closure on Friday 20th March please see the recommended websites and resources to support learning at home.
