Year 1

Welcome to Squirrel Class

Teachers Miss Vigar

Hello, My name is Miss Vigar and I am the teacher in Squirrel class. I’m delighted to welcome your child into Year 1. The transition from Reception into Year 1 can be a challenge as the children move from a play based curriculum to more structured learning experiences. At Bletchingley, we try to make the transition as stress free as possible by making all learning fun, maintaining some of the Early Year’s structure and only easing into more formal lessons when the children are ready. I believe that parental involvement is the key to a successful classroom. Any support that you can provide at home in terms of daily reading and practice in writing letters and numbers will benefit your child enormously! I look forward to getting to know you and working with you over the next year. If you have any concerns, I am always there before and after school, or at the end of an email at other times.
