Year 1 Project Day - Where Does our Food Come From?

NEW DATE - Tuesday 12th July


We have moved our project one day earlier, due to Sports Day on Wednesday 13th. 



Please practise your phonics little and often over half term with your children. I have sent home a booklet to practise, but there is also lots of resources in the phonics screening area on our class pages. Our Phonics screening is on Tuesday 7th-Friday 10th June.



Here is our new project - due 13th July.

Maths Homework:


Maths homework during the SUMMER TERM will be given out on Friday and should be returned the following Friday.

Spellings Homework

Due to the photocopier being out of order today (Friday 4th February) this week’s spellings are available in ‘Home Learning.’ Click on Spelling Homework. You don’t have to print them out but you can copy them onto paper for your child to practise and learn. 

Forest School - Monday 7th February.

Please bring wellies and outdoor coats/all in ones in a bag. Thank you. Mrs Mitchell

RE Homework for Wednesday 2nd Feb


In RE we have been learning these Parables:

The Good Samaritan

The Prodigal Son

The Lost Sheep

On Wednesday 2nd February, we will be having a go at writing one of these stories. You can pick which one you would like to write.

So, to get ready for writing – I would like you to retell the story to someone at home (talk for writing). You don’t need to do any writing. Just use the pictures to tell the story. Try and do it a few times so you feel really confident for our writing lesson on Wednesday.

Happy New Year Year 1 and Parents!

We hope you all had a restful and happy break.


Thank you for your continued support.



PE will still be on Wednesday and Friday (come in kit)

Forest School: TBC (once every half term)

We will start sending activities home to support your children with their phonics, as we begin preparations for Phonics Screening in Summer Term. More Info to follow.


Thank you

Mrs Mitchell


Dear Parents/ Carers,

As part of our Advent fundraising, we are trying to raise money to buy ‘World Gifts’ from CAFOD to help families living in poverty buy essential items such as food, water and hygiene products. We have looked in our maths lessons at what we could buy if each family donated £1. For example we could buy...


       and                and two  


In Year 1 we have decided to do a sponsored 'Hit the Button Half Hour'  throughout the week to see how many times we can complete the 1 minute number bonds to 20 challenge in half an hour.

Please contribute any donations you are able to on school money. We are holding this fundraising event instead of sending Christmas cards so it is not an additional expense for families.

Thank you so much for supporting this important cause. Our contributions to ‘World Gifts’ will truly help a family living in poverty. If you would like more information, please visit the CAFOD website.


Thank you again,

Mrs Mitchell

Wednesday 29th September- EBL research 

Your child bought home their EBL book today. This is to do their research in. I’ve added a few photos below of research from previous year 1 classes to give you an idea of how to support your child (NB. different question). Please ensure your child’s research book is in their bag every Tuesday. Thank you. Mrs M

Logging on RM Unify

Please help your child become more confident logging on RM Unify by helping them to practise at home. Their username is their surname and the first initial of their first name. They know their password. We talk in lessons about how we keep our password safe.

Date for your diary:

Open afternoon on Wednesday 13th October at 2.30pm. This is a lovely afternoon to share in your child's learning. You come to the classroom and sit with your child as they show you all the super work they have done this half term. We hope you can come. 

For Next Tuesday 14th September

I am bringing these two in with me for EBL on Tuesday 14th September. 
Husky is from a very cold part of the world. Do you know where? Do you know how he copes with the freezing temperatures? Does Giraffe live in a cold country too?

Do you have a toy animal from a hot or cold country that you could bring in for our lesson on Tuesday? You might even have a meerkat you could show us!! (Please don’t bring your most precious toy. We will of course take care great care of the toys we all bring in, but unfortunately accidents can happen).
Please don’t worry if you don’t have a toy animal that fits with hot or cold countries. You can help me look after Giraffe and Husky.
