Dr Walker's Church of England Primary School

An Exceptional Place to Flourish

Transition into Year One

Hello lovely Caterpillars and Family,

Can you believe you have nearly finished your first year at Dr Walker's. You will soon be venturing up into year one and will be in Ladybirds class. As you may already know next year in Ladybird's class you are really lucky as you will have not just one class teacher but two! You will have Mrs Dawson (Madame Dawson who taught you french this year) on Mondays and Tuesdays. Then you will have Mrs Walker on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Of course the wonderful Mrs McEwen will be in class every morning and at lunch time too!


I have created this page to help you all find out about year one! Myself, Mrs Walker and Mrs Dawson want to make this transition the best and as smooth as possible (as we know moving to a new class can be a little scary). I know you will all have so much fun in Ladybirds! I have loved having you in Caterpillars Class and I can't wait to see you all on the playground or at the gate in September and hear about all the fun you are having in Ladybirds. 


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to give the school office a call and they will pass on the message to me.
