Useful Websites 


Year 1 sampling their crumbles! 

We made apple crumble as part of our focus on Instructions in English. 

We have also been looking at Capital letters, when we need to use them and how we write them. The children took part in some activities to practice forming their capital letters correctly.  

Year 1's trip to Packington Farm 

Gruffalo Cupcake Decorating


After our English topic on the Gruffalo, we decorated Gruffalo cupcakes. The children were asked to write instructions afterwards of each step of how they decorated their cupcake. 


Our first week in Year 1


We have been busy in Year 1 over the past couple of days getting to know our new teacher and teaching assistant, discovering the new routines we have throughout the day and already learning new and exciting things. The children worked as a class to decide what our new rules will be in Year 1. They decided that the following rules were important to follow in school in order to have a fun year. 


Listen carefully to others. 

Put up your hand if you need to ask or answer a question.

Walk quietly and sensibly around the school.

Sit nicely on the carpet and at our tables.
