A wonderful week for our Year 1’s.

This week our Year 1 children have been simple wonderful.


Firstly, all children represented our school superbly during our Harvest Morning. We would like to once again thank all parents/grandparents who came to our harvest morning. We do hope you enjoyed it as much as we did, we also hope children shared their cookies with you when they got home.


Children have started their new unit of work all based on ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ in English this week. We started off our work by watching a video of this traditional tale. We then set off to describe the characters, role play the tale and make Grandma some tasty play dough treats for Little Red Riding Hood to take. Teacher groups have been focusing on writing accurate sentences this week, looking in detail at finger spaces, full stops and capital letters.


Children were challenged to show that they know what a digit means in Maths this week. They have written, read and counted out numbers from 0-40. Children have worked on independent activities to show exactly what they know about numbers using numicon, pictures, dominoes and deans to support their learning. Next week, we will start our first Rising Stars assessments.

Our afternoons have been very exciting this week, from finding out about our chosen topics to icing our biscuits made during our harvest morning.

Book share

Thank you to all parents and older siblings who gave up a little time this morning to come into class and share a book with the children. The children loved seeing parents on the beanbags in the book corner, this was a lovely way to start our Friday.
