Percentages are much better IMO. Sadly we're changing what appears to be a halfway house between percentages and the letter system. It's a little more accurate then just five letters, but not as much as percentages were. We're basically getting given some sort of letter or code which can represent..
Low third, high third, low 2:2, high 2:2, low 2:1, high 2:1, 1st.
Do the first year grades show up on your degree scriptures? I am pleased with my A, B, and C grades. The D is not brilliant and the E is terrible (because I failed it.) What do you think of my situation?

I don't understand why you're given 'Grades'? We're just given percentages. For my course you had to simply get 40%+ in each module to pass, and if at the end of the year you had failed a module you could either - get a deferred pass (usually if >35%, only one or two modules failed, and the other modules had decent passes), or you'd resit the failed module next year. Or if you'd failed a few and your other modules were poor, you might have to retake the year.
I remember someone who had a simlar grading system to mine on TSR and she told me that it works out to something like this:
A- 1st (70%)
B- 2:1 (60%)
C- 2:2 (50%)
D- 3rd (40%)
Though I do not know how accurate this is, it does kind of explain my failed E though.

It's reassuring to know someone else has the same grading system
So those percentages I said are right? When you say level 4 do you mean the second year and what do you mean by 'ast 20'? Does your university have a similar view for first year students going onto their second year? (as in 100 credits + a fail is allowed to progress.) Also I thought it was second and third year modules that count towards obtaining an honours

My uni has the same grading system as yours and that is how it works out classification wise.
It depends on your uni, but at mine if you pass 100 credits at level 4 and have achieved at least a grade of F+ in the last 20 then the fail is condoned and you can pass on to the next level... but to get Honours you do need a total of 360 so I think you'll still need to pass the module at some point. It would be a good idea to talk to a lecturer about this tbh as they'll know more about the outcome of your situation than we will.
