Welcome to our page! Here you will find weekly updates about the exciting activities and learning that has taken place in school. We will be updating the site on a Wednesday so be sure to pop by and have a look. In the meantime, have a look at some of the sites below that are useful to help with your child's learning. Click on the pictures to be taken directly to the site.
Reading is to be done every night at home and diaries are to be signed by the adult who listened to them. Planners are checked daily.
Spellings are handed out on a Friday to be practised at home as well as in school and a test is given every Friday
Homework will be given once a week on a Friday. It will alternate between maths and phonics and is expected to be returned by the following Friday. Homework is used to consolidate or extend the learning that has taken place in school.
Attendance is expected to be at least 97%. This is equivalent to having just five days off throughout the academic year.
PE kits are to be kept in school at all times. PE kits will be taken home at the end of each half term to be washed.
Children are to wear a plain white T-shirt, black shorts and black pumps for PE lessons as per the school uniform policy.
It is essential that your child's name is clearly labelled with their full name in all uniform.
Swimming is on a MondayAll swim kits need to be in school and will be returned home that night to wash.
We are so proud of how well the children have settled in this week, it can be a scary jump from early years to KS1 but the children have all taken it in their stride and had a lovely time getting to know their new teachers and learning the new routines. Just look how smart we look in our new classrooms...
Our first topic this year is...SUPER HEROES! We will be basing our learning around the books below.
The children are getting very excited to start their swimming lessons on Monday! We enjoyed learning about Adam Peaty before he came for our pool grand opening and we have even had time out to practice putting on our caps! It was a little tricky at first but they got it in the end, ready to for action! Please remember to bring in your child's swimwear on Monday morning, it will be returned the same night to wash. Thank you!
All the hard work paid off! The children managed to dress themselves beautifully (including the caps!) and most children got in to the pool with no fuss or tears, they were so brave and blew away the swimming instructors away with how good they were with just one lesson, we imagine by the end of the year we will have a school full of amazing, confident swimmers! Take a look at some of our pictures...
This week the Wizard Lizard from our first superhero story 'Super worm' has been up to no good with Miss Ghafari's Literacy set! He used his magic powers to shrink the buzzy bee 'z' words that we have been learning in phonics, the children had a mission to find the bees and use magnifying glasses to read them, we did a super job and managed to be quiet enough that the lizard didn't find us...phew!
Wizard Lizard has been up to his old tricks again...Mrs Oakley's literacy set have been writing adjectives to describe him so that we can write wanted posters... but we had to hide so that he couldn't see us.
Well done to Miss Ghafari's Maths set, today we helped super worm to answer word problems whilst practicing our number bonds to 10. The children did a brilliant job finding the numbers that we can add together to make our total. Take a look at some more of the problems and see if you can still spot them!
On Thursday Year one enjoyed a lovely Autumn walk around our school. The children were fantastic at spotting signs of Autumn and collected lots of leaves. We then took the leaves back to our classroom and created some beautiful pictures using a 'leaf rubbing' method. Well done!
Today the children used their super powers to reveal tricky words! At first glance the paper looked empty but with a splash of colour we discovered lots of words we had been practicing in phonics...
This week Miss Richards Literacy set have enjoyed tasting lots of vegetables from our story 'Supertato'. Evil Pea was really naughty and mashed up all of the veg but the children enjoyed them anyway... some even came back for seconds and thirds!
This week the children have been learning about how the artist 'Andy Goldsworthy' creates art using natural materials. The children went for a walk in the woods and created some wonderful art following his techniques.
This week Miss Richards Literacy set made a superb reading den in the woods! The children worked as a team to decide how to build the den and stop it from falling down! Once we were sure that we were safe from any "bad wolves" the children enjoyed reading their phonics books and listening to two of our new class stories from the book fair. Great work year one!
