Junk Model Castles

What fun we've had making junk model castles! Take a look at some of our amazing work!

Research - Computing

In Summer 1, we have been researching information about Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth. We have been using search skills to find lots of interesting fact about them!


We had a fabulous trip to Eureka in Summer 1! We found out all about how our bodies work (and even looked at why we vomit! Yuck!) We also explored all of the museum and had lots of fun, especially in the bank!

Welcome to Year 1 (2018)
Important information:

Physical Education
PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays and children will need their PE kits in school all week.
PE kit should consist of a t-shirt and shorts and a pair of pumps .

Reading Books
Please ensure that your child brings their reading book everyday.
Books will be changed on Mondays but your child must have their reading diary signed to say they have read to an adult. Please try to listen to your child reading for at least 5-10 minutes each day.
Sharing a book at bedtime or reading a story to your child will help them develop a love for reading!

Spellings and Phonics
Spelling Tests take place on Mondays and new spellings will be given out on Mondays. Words will be stuck/written into the children's spelling books and their test results will also be in these. Please make sure that your child looks after their book and that you check it regularly. Thank you.

Your children will be set a piece of homework weekly. This will be an online homework on Matheltics or a worksheet. This will be sent out on Thursdays and will need to be completed for the following week.
A homework menu linked to our learning in class will also be sent out at the start of each half term. There will be six activities on this menu. Each activity will be allocated points and you and your child can choose which activities you complete.
 We also encourage parents to practise times tables with their children so that they can learn them by reciting them and know them by heart. They should practise x2,x10 and x5.

Reading Eggs and Mathletics websites
 The school has paid for all Year 1 children to use these sites at school and at home.
Log in details and passwords have been sent home. If you have lost your child's deatils please ask for another copy.

and finally....
If you have any questions about Year 1 and the things we do, please come and talk to either Miss Boyd or Miss Boucher.
Planting beans

This half term we are looking at the story Jack and the Beanstalk! We planted some broad beans and learned about how to look after seeds so they grow.

Tiny Tales and Tunes

On 16th January, we had a wonderful visit from Catherine. We read the story of The Gruffalo and did lots of fun dancing, pretending to be the different character from the story. Our favourite part was making the frogs jump about it the pond because of The Gruffalo's huge feet!

RSPB Wild Words

On the 15th January we got a visit from Jo, who works at the RSPB. We went exploring outside to find some exciting things to describe. We had so much fun! We also got to read some of The Gruffalo and Stickman, two of our favourite books in Year 1!

Christmas Show!

Well done Year 1 and 2! Our Christmas show this year was 'Christmas with the Aliens' and the children were fantastic! Here are some pictures of Year 1 in their wonderful costumes.

Road Safety

On Tuesday 25th September we learned about road safety. We learned about how to make sure the road is safe before we cross and we now know we need to hold a grown up's hand!

Spooky Dress Up Day!

On Friday 26th October, we had a very spooky dress up day! We all came in our favourite Halloween costumes and did lots of fun spooooooky activities!
