On Thursday we celebrated World Book Day. It was amazing to see all the excited faces in their lovely costumes. The children in Year 1 enjoyed lots of story telling including making up their own stories.

If you were unable to attend the Phonics Workshop this week please look at our school website under the Workshop Tab. You will find lots of interesting information and ideas to support your child. 

There is a phonics sheet that will be going home on Monday with the children. Please use this to help your child continue to grow with their learning.

Many thanks for your continued support. 


What's new?

Over the past few weeks the children have been watching some scenes from Toy Story 2 and using their senses to come up with different adjectives to describe characters and settings. They have been learning lots and it has shown in all their writing. 

Children, what does Mr. Williams say? "Big is banned!"

The children are not allowed to use the word 'big' in their writing to describe something, they must use another word. If you ask them, they will tell a selection of other words for 'big'.

The children have been exploring money and getting used to the different coins and the value of them. We have played toy shops and they were able to buy and sell toys using toy money. 

We have also explored the history of toys and comparing some old toys with modern ones. With this came the introduction of materials. We looked at what material are, the names and their properties.   

The homework set this week will be in the spelling book on page 12.

Welcome back.

Welcome back to Otters class page. A happy new year to you all. The topic this term is all about toys. The children will be making their own pull along slinky toy (like the one from toy story). I will be updating this page once a week with news from the class, homework pages and anything else that is relevant. 





Home learning

We expect our children to read at least 4 times a week, please ensure your child shares their reading books at home and a comment is written in the reading diary.  This week's home learning is page 34 English and p24 Maths

Weekly maths challenge



Welcome to Year 1. It was so lovely to see the children returning after the holiday full of enthusiasm and ready to learn.

This half term our topic is, ‘Percy’s in a Pickle.’ We started our topic by finding Percy on the floor having fallen in a hole and hurt his leg. We asked him what was wrong and how could help him. Percy was worried he would not be able to do his jobs in the park.

We decided we would help him and be Junior Park Keepers.  Year 1 now need to decide how we can support poor Percy.
