Danesholme Infant Academy

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

Mrs Harris, Ms Widzyk and Miss Barr are all here for you and your child, delivering daily lessons through Teams.  Be sure you check in every day to let them know how your child is getting on.

In addition, here are some useful sites to support our curriculum. 

If you would like to send us pictures or videos of how you are getting on, you can upload through Teams, or email admin@danesholmeinfantacademy.org.  We would love to see them!

Read Write Inc and Kinetic Letters

We currently use RWI to teach children letter formation.  For useful information on how we use RWI and Kinetic Letters in school, and help on how you can support your child at home with this, please see our For Everyone section in the menu on the right.
