We hope you are all well and managed to enjoy some of the sunshine last week.

Before half term, we received lots of lovely pictures of what you have been doing to keep busy during lockdown and we have shared a selection of these above. We have really enjoyed seeing your smiling faces and all the interesting things that you have been doing and we thought you might like to see them too. Enjoy!

Stay safe,

Mrs Trolley and Mrs Barstow :-)

Hello Year 1!

We hope you are all well and you're having a good week. It is nice to see the sunshine again.

On Friday many people across the country will be celebrating 75 years since VE (Victory in Europe) Day which marks the end of the second world war. Are you planning to celebrate? Let us know what you have planned by commenting on this post.

Please do also continue to send us photos of what you have been doing e.g. work, art, crafts, baking etc that you are particularly proud of. We really do enjoy hearing from you and seeing your smiling faces.

Take care and stay safe.

Mrs Trolley and Mrs Barstow

Sam's Safaris

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 Tuesday and Friday.  PE days for Aspen Class are Tuesday 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.
