Welcome to Key Stage 1!
In KS1, we focus on building independence and resilience towards learning. We understand how important it is to take risks in our learning; nothing ventured, nothing gained. We foster a positive attitude towards learning, where aspirations can be set high and a child’s emotional wellbeing and development are at the forefront of all that we do.
The adults in Hepworth Class are Mrs Garside and Mrs Tonge.

- Please practise times tables regularly, focusing on the 2x, 5x and 10x tables.
- Please ensure that your child has his/her PE kit in school and that all items belonging to your child are clearly labelled.
