Welcome to Year 1
Dear Year 1,
We are going to have so much fun in year 1. We will learn together, look after each other and support each other in our learning.
Everyone will be expected to work hard and always do their very best even the grown-ups! This is called having “high expectations”.
You will have goals to reach so you know what your next steps in your learning will be.
Reaching your goals can be scary and sometimes frustrating, especially when you get stuck at something. It takes a very long time to become an expert and something that you are not yet so good at. In fact, scientists have proved that the only way to learn and become more intelligent is to try something new and work really, really hard at it even if you make a lot of mistakes. Making mistakes is good because you can learn lots from what went wrong.
I look forward to learning with you this year!
