Spread your wings and soar to success

Welcome to the Class 1 page...

Take a look at what we have been learning and let us know what you think.


In maths this week we have been looking at comparing objects. We have learnt new words such as greater than and less than and we have learnt what these mean. The children have worked really hard to learn these and they have really impressed me with how much they already know! In literacy we have broken down the steps a little more and focussed on sentence structure and what sentences are. In topic we are learning about the properties of materials and what uses we have for materials.

Thank you to all parents who have been coming to our parent reading sessions, it is really nice to see you having quality time with your children sharing a book. We have had fantastic attendance this week, the children have been fantastic with their punctuality at school and I hope this continues! Well done to everyone!

Please ensure you have handed in your trip letters and money to me or at the office!

This week in Year 1 we have been learning about counting forwards and backwards. In literacy we have been learning about adjectives to describe Goldilocks and the cottage. Next week we will have our first attempt at re- writing Goldilocks and the three bears.

Thank you to all children who brought in full PE kits this week on Wednesday and Thursday, hopefully next week we will have a full house! Also thank you to those parents who came to our parent reading sessions, I will ensure the gates are open before 3pm so we can have as many people come as possible to join us!

If you have any spare fabric that we can use to make our teddy bears with that would be much appreciated. Any bedding, old clothing or pyjamas that are clean and that you can cut easily with scissors.

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Stead


Welcome to Year 1.

The children are beginning to settle into our new routine in the classroom. It is always a challenge for children transitioning from Early Years to Year 1 as they go from continuous provision to sitting at tables doing lessons. Our topic this half term is toys, with a focus on teddy bears. 

In literacy we are learning about Goldilocks and The Three Bears, at the end of the literacy unit we should all be able to write our own version of the story.

In maths we are learning about numbers and how we can represent them.

In Year 1 there is Miss Stead (Class Teacher) and Miss McCue (Teaching Assistant).

PE is every Wednesday and Thursday, please ensure children have got complete PE kits, including outdoor footwear.

Parent reading sessions are every Tuesday and Thursday, please come along and join us for 15 minutes and the end of a day to share a story with your child.

Check your child's book bags for important letters that went out which need returning to school ASAP.

Reminder: if you have any old clean materials (for example bedding or pyjamas) this would be really helpful if you could donate it to us. We will be making our very own teddy bears towards the end of half term so we are in need of materials to make these with.

Thank you for your continued support and i look forward to teaching your children and seeing how much they change over the next year!
