Year 1

Term 5

Our new topic is 'North South East West - Where are we?'

We were really exicted to have a special suitcase delivered with over 40 postcards inside from all over the world.

Each week this special suitcase will be delivering clues about which country we will be 'visiting' next! 

Please see below for our topic map and home school links.

Term 4

Our new topic is Wonderful Wildlife.

As a wow start we had a surprise trip to Slimbridge. It was fantastic!

Already this term we have enjoyed reading Owl Babies. We can't wait to find out more about the wildlife and animals in our country.

Please see below for our topic web and home school links.

Our Forest School was littered with rubbish which we sorted and reused to make recycled robots!

Here are some ideas for some creative home learning as well as our topic web for this term.

Welcome back to Term 3!

Our new topic is Marvellous Materials and Recycling Rangers.


Just to remind you that Forest School will not be running this term so if your child needs their wellies please feel free to take them home.

Thank you for a super Term 2!

This term we have...

English: We have read 'The Jolly Postman' and 'The Jolly Christmas Postman'. We used actions to help us learn all of the 'Jolly Postman' and performed it in our end of topic celebration. In our writing we have been developing our story writing and letter writing skills.

Phonics: We have learnt the following new graphemes; ay, ou, ie, ea, oy, ir, ue, aw, wh, ph, ew, oe, au, y.

Maths: We have developed our addition and subtraction skills. We are able to use a number line to help solve problems for both of these operations.

Topic: During our topic 'Festivals and Celebrations' we have learnt about different festivals and celebrations of various cultures/countries which are celebrated around this time of year.

We have also been busy 'Little Elves' in the lead up to Christmas and made, wrapped and labelled some very special presents...

We hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in 2018!

Welcome back to Term 2!

Our new topic is...


To start off our new topic we had an exciting Wow Day. First thing we were delivered a package and when we opened it we found lots of interesting objects. Included in the box were, a pair of gloves, a tin of hot dogs, some sparklers and the book 'The Jolly Postman'.

We realised that postal workers often deliver cards, leaflets and invitations which can all be linked to different celebrations. We think that we will be finding out about different celebrations and festivals linked to this time of year.


The celebration for this week is...

This term we have...

English: We have read, 'The Snail and The Whale', 'Sharing a Shell', 'The Rainbow Fish' and 'Tiddler'. We used actions to help us learn part or all of the stories which we really enjoyed. When writing we have focused on finger spaces, full stops and capital letters. 

Phonics: We have spelling sight words 'you, they, there, said, were, like, have and little'. We have also been reading and spelling words with adjacent consonants. 

Maths: We have been focusing on our number fluency which has involved, counting to and back from numbers up to 100, one more and one less than, number bonds/ pairs and using a number line to add.

Topic: During our topic 'Life at Sea' we have learnt lots about sea creatures, habitats, oceans, how to look after our seas/ oceans as well as making lots of fun and creative sea creatures.


We hope that you have a really lovely half term! What will our new topic be?!

September 2017- Welcome to Year 1!


There are two classes in Year 1. They are called Ash and Silver Birch. The two classes are next to each other and we often get together to work on our different topics.


We enjoy using our outdoor areas for lots of different things. These include the sand and water trays, the writing tables and lots more.


Termly Topic

We are really excited about starting our Term 1 topic next week. We have lots of exciting things for you to do...


PPA Cover

Mr Welti will cover Miss Godsell and Miss Hunt on alternate Tuesdays.


Water bottles

Please do not send in your child's water bottle in their book bag. They can sometimes leak and this not only affects the book bag the bottle is in but often the others in the book bag box. Many thanks for your understanding and help with this.


PE times and book change

Please see the individual class pages for information re PE and book change days.


Learning at home

We encourage regular reading, of books and sight words, as well as activities which will help develop number fluency. More ideas and information about these tasks will be shared on our Open Day at the beginning of October.


Please see the Home/School Link document below to give you some ideas for some different tasks you could complete at home. We hope to be able to share some in our Show and Tell slots.
