The year 1 children really enjoyed the animals visiting.  Why not ask them some facts about the animals and also which was their favourite?

Year 1

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

PE days for Pine Class are Monday and Friday.  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,  This will start as soon as the children have settled in Year 1.

We will have a weekly spelling test on a Friday.  Please help your child practise their spellings.  Children will get new spellings once they spell all of their current words correctly.

The children enjoyed listening to Hilary Robinson talk about her new book 'Jasper the Space Dog'.  The children really enjoyed their experience with an author and asked some fantastic questions.
