An update from Mrs Dene and Miss Scappaticci

To our parents:

 We would like to thank you all from the bottom of our heart for all the support you have given us as teachers and your children throughout these unprecedented times.

It has been a joy to teach your children.

The oak academy and bitesize websites are going to continue to produce home learning activities throughout the summer for those wanting learning materials throughout the summer holidays.


We will be around on the first day back at school in September to welcome your children and help them find their year 2 classrooms. We will be making regular visits to Year 2 to see how they are getting on!!!!

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you feel there is a problem or an issue.


Have a fantastic summer! 

Your child's well being and education is of the utmost importance to me.

School closure - Home learning

All you need to do is complete some science work and take a photo of yourself doing it and write some sentences about it. Then email Miss Brown with your photo to kbrown@thewilmslowacademy.co.ukA letter and video have been sent out to all families so please refer to those.

Playing Together


Our School day


I have attached a copy of the Year 1 lesson timetable so that you can see how your child's say is structured.

In the Autumn term, we aim to have 2 practical maths lessons that enables your child to learn through play.

Your child will be put into a phonics group based on their need and they will have a daily phonics session.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be back in school by Wednesday.

The children will have maths, phonics and spelling homework.

Spelling tests are done on a FRIDAY.

Reading books

Please can all children have their reading books in school every day.

Children can change their reading books each day if necessary and we encourage the children to do this as part of their daily routine at school.

It is really important that you hear your child read regularly at home as this has a big impact on their progress

When you have heard your child read, please make a comment in their green reading record.




P.E. will be on a MONDAY and FRIDAY for this half term.     Please ensure that your child has their P.E. kit in school on these days.

We will be doing as much of our P.E outdoors this half term, so please ensure that your child has the appropriate P.E kit!!

It is essential that all clothes have their name in as they can easily get mixed up. Please can you help your child practice getting dressed/undressed at home if they are not yet able to get changed by themselves.



As mentioned above - If you need to see me about an issue concerning your child, however big or small, please feel free to see me at the end of the day or arrange an appointment via the office.

Thank you!
