At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog- A weekly update of all the exciting things that happen within the week! Enjoy!


Reading Books

Please listen to your children read daily. When the children are confident with the text, their book will be changed.  Please ensure book bags are in school each and every day as we will be reading with each child throughout the week.


P.E Days

Year 1 have P.E weekly and the day will be confirmed with a sign on the door.  Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school on this day. 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.



Homework is set every Friday via J2E. This will direct you to access Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds where your children will complete an English and Maths task. Please support your child in completing these tasks. Their logins for J2E, Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds can be found inside their reading journals. If you encounter any problems, please speak to your class teacher. 

Phonics Screening


During the Phonics Screening Check, children are asked to read (decode) 40 words. Most of these words are real words but some are pseudo-words. Please use the resources below to help your child practice reading, in advance of the phonics screening. 


While these words may not necessarily be used in the Phonics Screening Check, helping your child to decode words with a range of digraphs and trigraphs will support your child's reading abilities.


If you have any queries, please speak with your child's class teacher.

This week in English we have been exploring the format of newspaper reports. We have been looking at the different features before writing our own, detailing Nemo's experience.



In Maths we have been exploring equal groups of objects. We have looked at making equal groups by grouping counters and then sharing out counters into equal groups.



We are continuing to explore Antarctica, exploring the layout, temperature and weather there. This week we finally found out why penguins cannot fly! We wrote a letter to Miss Geary to explain to her!



This week we had a specical visitor in for to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. We focused on art from the 1960's and made Andy Warhol inspired popart of the queen!



In PE, our focus is Dance. We have been moving to a rhythm of four beats and looking at different types of movement. We also had fun exploring movements and then making groups, to reinforce our maths learning!
