We enter to learn, we leave to achieve!

Background Slideshow


Welcome to 1S


Here you will find our curriculum maps to show  you the topics we have been learning each term and what we are working on this half term.   

Further down the page you can read fortnightly class blogs about our learning including some quotes from the children.  Enjoy!

  There are also some reminders about P.E and Reading.



Curriculum Maps


Mathletics is updated weekly for homework. The allocated activities are based around our learning from the week.  If you need a reminder of your child's log in - please ask.


Reading Books

Please remember to sign your child's reading record book and send it to school when their reading book needs changing.  Your child can then update their sticker chart and work towards earning their bronze, silver and gold reading certificates.  

When a platinum certificate is earned they will also receive a free book!  

Phonic books are also allocated to your child on Bug Club - if you need a reminder of their log in please ask.

Year 1 visit the library on a Friday and your child will bring home a book of their choice to share with you.


P.E Day for Summer Term 1

1S have P.E every Thursday for this half term.

Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit and it is kept in school. Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed on these days. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.

Our Class Blogs


17.04.15 - We have been very busy in our first week back.


In Maths we have been learning about partitioning numbers along with comparing and ordering numbers.  We have been working hard on our knowledge of number bonds too.


In Literacy we have been using 'Handa's Surprise' to produce a class text map and perform the story to the class.  We also sequenced the events to retell the story and tried to use some different story openers and conjunctions too.


We have also been exploring gliders in Design and Technology and enjoyed going outside to test out some gliders and measure how far they flew.  This helped us to think about what features are important when we designed our own ones.  We will be making them next week.   


To end the week we also received the maximum attendance award for KS1 which meant we got to keep the attendance bear for another week!

We all earned 5 housepoints each for this too!






16.03.15 -

This week we have been learning to name, describe and sort 2d and 3d shapes in Maths.


"I know that a square is a 2D shape and a cube is 3D and has square faces." (R.C.)

"I really liked going on a shape hunt in the playground." (C.D.)


We have also been carrying on with our learning in Science and investigating plants.  There have been some excellent pieces of homework brought in for this too, including some home-made 3D flowers.


"The daffodils in the playground are not in bud any more there are now flowers." (L.V.)

"I enjoyed making my 3D flower, I used part of an egg box". (E.A.)

"I can label all the parts of a plant now." (R.V.)


We are looking forward to having our class photos taken next Monday.
