 I hope you are ready to work hard and have fun!

If you have any questions or concerns please come and speak to me at the end of the day or call the school office to arrange an appointment.

Thank you

General information

If your child would like snack at playtimes then please use the online booking system as we no longer accept cash in school. Toast, fruit, milk, milkshake and juice are all available to book online each day or further in advance. 

Year 1 P.E days will be Wednesday and Thursday. Children can come into school in their school PE kit on these days. 

R.E. topics (Autumn)

God's Great Plan

This topic is designed to develop the children's knowledge and understanding of God's beautiful world. It also helps the children appreciate that God created them with love and we need to help God look after his beautiful world and all that is in it. 

Mary, Mother of God

This topic is designed to develop the children's knowledge and understanding of Mary and her role in God's sending of his Son, Jesus. It introduces children to the story of the Nativity and gives them opportunities to learn about Advent and Christmas. 

We Need You!

As you know we really value parental involvement and appreciate the support of our parents.

Reading is a crucial way in which you can help your child at home. Please read with your child every night, even if it is only for 5 minutes!

As a school we are passionate about children's emotional health and well-being. This year we will continue to focus on 'Growth Mindset' initiatives.  


Our Year 1 motto is

'I can if I try!'

No matter how old we are, we all learn by making mistakes! In year 1 it doesn't matter if we make mistakes but it is important that we always try our best and have a go. smiley

An update...


In English, we have written great narratives based on the story 'Paper Planes.' We have also empathised with the characters from the text and wrote messages from the character's point of view.


We have been working hard to recognise, read and write numbers, understand the place value of numbers and solve addition and subtraction calculations. We have been using practical equipment, ten frames, number lines and part-whole models to help us with our maths work.


Year 1 have been investigating materials and their properties. We have enjoyed predicting and carrying out fair tests such as which materials will float or sink and which materials are waterproof.


In history, we have been comparing old and new toys and technology. We enjoyed exploring how toys and technology has evolved over time.


We have been experimenting with different Medias of art. We have been creating different lines and making waves in our art sessions. Year 1 particularly enjoyed creating abstract art using circles and creating secondary colours using the three primary colours.
