Easter Bonnet Parade
Children are invited to create their own Easter Bonnet at home ready for our parade. Parents are invited to watch KS1 parade around the school playground on Thursday 14th March at 2:45pm (weather permitting) showing off their fantastic bonnets!
Thank you :)

Actions for Advent
We are preparing for the Birth of Jesus, through our prayers and our actions.
The first week of Advent is 'HOPE'. As Stewards of God's Creation working to make our world a better place for everyone, we would like to plant a tree at our local beautiful wood Uffmoor Wood, part of the Woodland Trust and show that there is Hope for a world that everyone cares for and looks after.
If you would like to contribute to this dedication, please can your child bring in a 50p contribution by Friday 15th December (there is no need for any more than this)
To remind the children of their special dedication, they are coming home with some crocus bulbs to plant out wherever you choose! Each year they 'Spring' up, we 'hope' they give you all HOPE for the future of our beautiful planet.
PEACE AND JOY
For our action for the Second and third weeks of Advent, we would like to give a gift to you! Come and join us in the playground at 3pm on Wednesday 13th December where we will perform some of our Nativity Songs for you - hopefully bring a smile to your face and sharing some Christmas joy!
EBL Homework in for 29th November. This sheet is coning home, but there is a copy here if needed.
Wednesday EBL sessions - Geography Fieldwork
Over the next 3 Wednesdays, a different group of 10/11 children will be asked to bring in their wellies so they can go and do their geography fieldwork in the school grounds. You will sent a text when it is your child's week.
Community Languages Day
On Friday 17th November, we are celebrating community language day in school! Our focus country is SPAIN. Please wear your own clothes in the colour of the country's flag.
Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely half term and that all the children had a good rest after their first 8 weeks in Year 1!
We are so excited to be back, beginning with Remembrance, starting our new EBL Topic and sprinkling in some Nativity songs!
A few updates:
Our EBL Topic is all about our local environment, so on Wednesdays we will be taking it in turns to do some Geography fieldwork in our school grounds. The children will already be in their PE kits, but if you could send in wellies every Wednesday (or keep them here if that suits you) that would be greatly appreciated.
PE will remain on Mondays and Wednesdays.
EBL Info 9.10.23
This week our EBL lesson is on Friday 13th . Unfortunately I haven't been able to send it out due to photocopier issues over the last few days.
I have attached the homework here so that you can chat about it with your child. I do not expect you to print it off and complete it but please have a look at the map together and have a discussion about Wales so that the children have some prior knowledge for Friday.
Thank you. Mrs Mitchell
Monday 25th September- Muddy Monday for the whole class so please bring a pair of wellies in a carrier bag.
Following Muddy Mondays for the whole class:
Monday 9th October
Monday 23rd October
Wellies can stay in school for the full half term if you are able to.
Please make sure your child knows if they need to bring them back home again after each session.
This week our EBL lesson will be on Tuesday - and, we are having a super exciting session with the VR headsets!
The VR headsets session will make up part of a whole day's teaching and learning all about our big question 'What Unites our Kingdom?'
We are going to be looking at our families and communities around the UK, so parents we need a little bit of help please...
For Tuesday: In your child's reading diary, please can you write the name of a family member (or two) that your child knows or knows of, who live in another part of the UK.
Auntie Cathy lives in Aberystwyth in Wales.
Grandma lives in Yorkshire, England
We will use your homework about Scotland the following week, so you have a bit longer to complete it. New hand-in date for Scotland work Wednesday 4th October.
As part of our work about family and communities, we will be revisiting what we know about Baptism in RE on Monday. It would be wonderful if you could share a photo of a baptism, christening, or naming day that you have been to - it might even be your own!
Or you may have another special religious celebration that you could share with us, if you don't have any photos of a baptism.
Have a chat over the weekend about the photo so you can talk about it in class on Monday.
You can bring in a paper photocopy, the actual photo (which will be returned!) or you can email it across to email@example.com.
Due to the logistics of the first day back, our morning PE slot has been cancelled (Some other classes do still have PE on Wednesday) so please send your Year 1 child into school in their uniform on Wednesday.
PE Days of Monday and Wednesday resume as normal on Monday 11th September. Thank you
Welcome to all our Year 1 families!
We hope you all having a wonderful summer!

We will be at the Phiz Lab door on the above date and time to greet you and sign you in. We can't wait to meet you!
