Growing to Succeed

We all had a fantastic time at Kirklees Light Railway! 

The children loved hiding and hunting for chocolate eggs in the field. Luckily, it was a lovely sunny day! 

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1.  The teacher in Pine Class is Mrs Barstow and the teacher in Aspen Class is Miss Shirra.  Mrs Bagnall and Miss Webster also work in Year 1.

PE days for Pine Class are Tuesday and Thursday.  PE days for Aspen Class are Monday and Wednesday.  Please remember that all children need a suitable PE kit with them in school at all times and children should wear:

  • white t-shirt
  • a pair of royal blue shorts
  • appropriate footwear for outdoors
  • a warmer tracksuit for outdoors

Please ensure that all jewellery including earrings, bracelets etc are removed on PE days.

Long hair also needs to be tied back.

Children should also bring their book bags to school everyday (with their book and reading record inside) along with a named water bottle.  Please note that snack (fruit or vegetables) are provided in school so please just bring a water bottle (water only please).

Spelling and Maths homework is sent home every Friday and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday.  It is important that you also read with your child every day for 10 minutes.  This should be recorded in the reading record.

Every Friday, the 'speaker of the week' bag will be sent home with a child.  Children are encouraged to bring four special items in the bag for example, photographs, books etc.  They will then be given some time to talk about these items.  Full details are attached to the bag,

We will have a weekly spelling test on a Friday.  Please help your child practise their spellings.

World Book Day Fun!

Stephanie BARSTOW (steph) on: Year 1 Blog!

This year we are focusing on learning about science through stories. In year one we have looked at two traditional tales: "The Three Little Pigs," and "Jack and the Beanstalk." We have planted our own magic beans and we will be keeping bean diaries throughout the next few weeks. Today we made houses for the Three Little Pigs, we made predictions then tested which materials would be the best. This afternoon we will continue with some Three Little Pig's maths! 

See our class page for photos!

The children have been working really hard this week to retell the story of Whatever Next. They have learnt actions and are trying hard to remember time conjunctions, such as, next, then, after that.
