Puppet show!

Our new topic is Traditional Tales, so to start off we listened to the story of the Three Little Pigs. The children created their own puppets and worked together to retell the story. 

A special visitor!

Today we had a visit from Father Christmas! The children were very excited and they enjoyed their chat with Santa. Santa was very impressed that all the children knew why we celebrate Christmas, and that we think of Jesus and his birth. 

Nativity – It’s a party!

The children did a brilliant job learning their lines, dances and actions to star in this years Nativity, superstars in the making!

Creative Curriculum Week

Our creative curriculum week was based around the book ‘The Selfish Giant; by Oscar Wilde. We had a fantastic week understanding and exploring the story with a variety of different activities ranging from castle building to a fantastic story telling workshop. 

We are SUPER!

To start off our new ‘superhero’ topic, we had a SUPERHERO DAY! The children loved being a superhero for the day and striking super posers. In English we made our own ‘wow words’ just like we see in comic books.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and it will consist of a Maths and English activity and spellings from the Year 1 common exception word list, as well as tricky words. Homework does not need to be handed back into school unless it is asked to be brought back. The activities set are to be carried out through fun and creative ways where possible, so that it can be tailored to the individual needs of your child. 


Children read to an adult at least once a week in school. This maybe individually or in a guided reading session. We encourage children to read little and often, we suggest 10 minutes per night in Year 1. We do ask that you do not read more than 1 book each night, a few pages to a whole book is recommended, with lots of questioning and talking about the book to aid comprehension. Children can have their reading books changed at any point during the week, provided that they remember to put their blue reading folder in the box. 


Please can PE kits be brought into school at the start of every half term and kept in school, we will send kits home at the end of each half term for it to be washed. The PE kit should be clearly named and consist of: pumps, trainers, shorts, white t-shirt, long trousers/leggings.
