Inspiring Exciting Futures

Good Morning Year 1!

Thank you to everyone who logged in with us on Microsoft Teams this morning. It was wonderful to see all of your smiling faces!  

If you didn't log in today, please do look out for your Microsoft Teams invitations.

You will need to know your child's user name and password for Teams, if you haven't logged in before. These are in your child's reading diary, but if you can't find them, mail us and we can send them again if you can't find them, so don't worry.

If you have any problems, please email us at   teachers@underwoodwest.cheshire.sch.uk      


We will be live with the children every morning (except Wednesday) at 9.45am to talk about the work that we have set for you and to introduce it.   Then in the afternoon, we will also be live at 2.45pm, to talk about how you have got on and for you to share your learning with us.

Look out for your Teams meeting link to join us and click on the link that says 'join the meeting'. Please come to as many as you can.


We will put our timetable for each week on here, to show you what work you will be doing. This is our timetable for next week.

Please feel free to have a look through their page and concentrate on any gaps that you may notice your child has, or follow through in order. There are video's for the Autumn Term on there too that you could have a look back over.
