Date: 26th Jan 2021 @ 10:13am

Last week the children were very excited to see the snow when they came to school. At break time we played in the snow made snow angels and had snowball fights. 

Look at the fun we had!

Making Jam Sandwiches

Date: 20th Jan 2021 @ 9:19pm

This week our English focus is how to write instructions. The main features that we need in our instructions are:

*a title

*a 'what you will need' list

*numbered instructions

*time connectives 

*bossy verbs 


The children have already done a fantastic job of writing instructions on 'how to clean your teeth' this week. 

Today we have made jam sandwiches and the children are going to write their instructions tomorrow using their own photographs.



Old Toys

Date: 18th Jan 2021 @ 8:15pm

This afternoon we have explored some old toys as part of the launch to our 'toys' topic. 

We played with dominos, playing cards, dolls, Barbies, flick books and many more old toys. Miss Powell even brought her Barbies and dolls in from when she was little! 

We had a lovely afternoon playing with them and learning some new rules for the old games! 

P.E. Mondays!

Date: 18th Jan 2021 @ 8:08pm

This morning we had our P.E. lesson with our city coach Georgia. This was our second lesson we Georgia and we loved it! 
We warmed up with a relay race and moved onto a game of pirate treasure. The children had to dodge the pirates, collect the treasure and get back to their base without getting caught! 
we can't wait until our lesson next week! 


Year 1 - Super Home Learners

Date: 18th Jan 2021 @ 7:42am

In Year 1 during the first two weeks of remote learning we have had fantastic work being sent in. Children have been working really hard and are asking questions and making comments on padlet all the time. The engagement has been brilliant. Have a look through our pictures below...


Well done everyone!!! smiley

The last few days in school have been very strange! The children have been fantastic and have been putting a smile on my face every minute though! 
min our Maths lessons we have been measuring using non-standard units. We started by measuring the length of different objects in the classroom using cubes, paper clips and lolly pop sticks.

Hi Everyone!

Sorry about the confusion with the padlet link today. It was a little bit annoying and frustrating. So this week when you use the link posted in the discussion thread for padlet on school spider you must add the addtional details that are explained on the video. 

Please see the video below where I am explaining how to do this. The details will also be posted on school spider each day. 

Hope this helps!

Happy New Year!!!!

We hope you have had an amazing Christmas. Unfortunately we will be working from home this half term due to the National Lockdown which came into place Monday evening. We do not want you to worry as we are here with you. However we would like you to continue with your learning at home using Padlet and school spider. 

You must log onto school spider each morning and do the register. We will then post the padlet link for that day where you will find all the day's learning. Make sure you go to the column for that day. So today go to the column labelled Wednesday and scroll down to see your activities for the day. At the top of the column you will find some messages from the staff in Year 1. 

Each day we would like you to ask us questions or tell us about your learning using the discussion thread for that day. Parents if you have any questions or can't find any logging in details for any of the online resources that we use please email us on the year group email or alternatively when you receive a call from Miss Kevill please let her know as well.

It is important that you log onto school spider each morning and do the register and complete the activities on Padlet. Miss Kevill will be ringing each day to any parents of children who have not been accessing the remote learning and have not been completing the daily register. 

Thank you for your support and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask through email, school spider or when you receive a call. 

Stay Safe!!!

Mrs Iqbal, Miss Powell, Mrs Copper, Miss Kevill and Mrs Tierneysmiley



Phonics fun!

Date: 19th Nov 2020 @ 7:34pm

This afternoon we have been playing lots of new phonics games. We have used them to practice our tricky words and our reading skills. Have a look at the fun we have had whilst practicing our phonics! 

We are back!!

Date: 18th Nov 2020 @ 9:02pm

Today we were all so excited to come back to school! After having to isolate for 14 days we were so happy to be back together! 
Everyone came back with a fantastic attitude towards their learning and made me really proud. We have experimented with our number bonds to 10, written the beginning of our new Three Little Pigs story and we have explored different materials in our CC lesson. We also had some time to choose in the provision and play with our friends too! We have had a great first day back! smiley

Our new story

Date: 11th Oct 2020 @ 8:42pm

This week we were hooked into our new story 'Supertato' by finding a letter pushed under our classroom door and a sack waiting on the other side. When we looked in the sack we found 3 vegetables with speech bubbles that were asking for our help! 



We thought about what this evil character might look like and wrote lots of exciting adjectives to describe him. 

Later in the week we create a character profile for the evil pea, thinking about what he looks like and adjectives to describe his personality. The work was amazing! Miss Powell and Mrs Cooper were so proud! 


Date: 9th Oct 2020 @ 7:28pm

Today the children have loved completing one of their Supertato challenges- to create their own Supertato! They have used potatoes and a selection of resources in the creative area to make their own Supertato. They all look fantastic! 

Tricky words

Date: 5th Oct 2020 @ 9:18pm

We love practising our tricky words in year 1. These are words we need to learn to sight read and we cannot sound out. We learn best through seeing them in lots of different ways and playing games!


1LJP Behaviour star - 2nd October 2020

Date: 5th Oct 2020 @ 9:08pm

Last weeks behaviour star - Friday 2nd October 2020. 

This week you have received the behaviour star for always being so helpful around the classroom. Before asking, you tidy the different areas, collect the books, pick rubbish off the floor and tuck the chairs under the tables. You also always put 100% effort into all of your work and are very enthusiastic to answer questions on the carpet. You are a superstar and deserve our behaviour star this week! 




Date: 5th Oct 2020 @ 9:01pm

We have been learning about seasonal change linked to Autumn in our connected curriculum lessons. We walked around our outdoor learning space looking for the signs of Autumn and collected lots of beautiful Autumn leaves. 

We have enjoyed making Autumn pictures using the Autumn themed loose parts and exploring the Autumn objects in the curiosity cube in the classroom. 


Exploring different ways to make 6, 7 and 8

Date: 5th Oct 2020 @ 8:51pm

Last week we enjoyed using the Numicon to find different ways to make 6, 7 and 8. We tried and tested laying different pieces on top to find 2 numbers that could make 6, 7 or 8. We then recorded our findings using addition number sentences. 



Spacial awareness

Date: 24th Sep 2020 @ 8:30pm

Today in our outdoor P.E. lesson we were thinking about spacial awareness. We played a game where we were rabbits with rabbit holes. We had to be aware of other children around us when we were running and jumping and had to make sure we didn't stand on any other rabbit holes. We all loved it when Miss Powell pretended to be the farmer and ran around after us! 


Our first few weeks in year one

Date: 23rd Sep 2020 @ 8:55pm

We have had a fantastic first few weeks in year 1. We have enjoyed exploring our new indoor and outdoor classroom and seeing our friends again. 




Date: 23rd Sep 2020 @ 3:15pm

This week to start our maths learning, we have been doubling. In the story that we are reading, Milo's mum is carrying a bag of shopping at the beginning. We have used this idea to help us to double. We have followed the steps to success by counting the same amount of cubes into each bag then counting how many we had altogether. We wrote our number sentence down and found the total on a number line. 

Miss Powell was really impressed with everyone's enthusiasm for doubling!
