Year 1 Angelfish

Dear Angelfish Class,

I have really enjoyed getting to know you over the last two terms. I have thoroughly enjoyed spending time with the children that have returned to school, especially our art afternoons. You have all put so much effort into your learning and I think you have adjusted so well. You should all be proud of yourselves!

For the children that I have not yet had the chance to meet in person I have loved seeing your fantastic efforts with your home learning! I have seen some wonderful castles, flower facts, Gingerbread baking and fantastic facts about animals. You should also be very, very proud!


Although I haven’t had the chance to see you yet, I really do hope that I get to meet you once you return after the holidays, please do give me a wave and introduce yourselves!


I feel incredibly lucky to have joined Angelfish class this year, you have all been wonderful! You all deserve a good rest over the summer holidays, I hope you all have a lovely break.

Mrs Painter


To Angelfish,

We will miss you lots!!!

It has been lovely getting to know you all and helping you along the way to learn the skills for your next adventure in Year 2. Always shoot for the stars!!!


Love Mrs Balsom and Mrs Gideon

Monday 20th July: IT'S PARTY TIME!


At Singlewell, we usually celebrate the end of the school year with a class party. Unfortunately, we are unable to do this together as a class this year, however it doesn’t mean you can’t have a celebratory party of your own with family.


You have all continued to work incredibly hard, trying your best in this tricky time and we want you to know how proud we are of you all


Below you will find a selection of ideas to help get your party started. We would love to see any photos you take so do email them over to your teacher!


Please use the link below to complete the parent survey to assist us with the children's return to school in September.

Dear Angelfish Class,

I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing all of the lovely photos of your home learning. I have seen lots of wonderful things and you have all clearly been putting so much effort into your activities. Well done to all children for your hard work and thank you to all of the adults for your help!

Over the half term break you could make a memory box to remind yourselves in the future of all of the things that you did during your time at home. You could fill your box with home learning activities, drawings, photos, decorations or anything else that you have made. Don’t forget to decorate your boxes too!

I hope that you all have well deserved rest over the half term break.

Hello Angelfish,

I am so excited to be helping Angelfish Class with their home learning! I have been told what an enthusiastic class you are so I have been busy planning lots of fun activities for you to do.

Although I cannot meet you all in person just yet I am looking forward to seeing the wonderful learning that you have been doing at home. I can see some of you have already been busy on Mathletics and Reading Eggs which is brilliant!

Please do send in any work or photos of activities that you would like to share, I would really enjoy seeing all your efforts.

Mrs Balsom and Mrs Gideon miss you all lots and hope you had a great Easter and are all having fun spending time with your family at home.

Stay safe and enjoy the sunshine!

Mrs Painter
