Key Information:

Our PE day is on a Tuesday and Friday afternoon. However, I would advise that you bring your PE kit in on a Monday and take it home Friday.


Homework and reading books will be handed out each Friday. Your homework pack will include; handwriting, a maths/literacy task, and spellings to be practiced. 


I would ask that homework is please returned by the following Thursday. A spelling test will take place each Friday, results will be sent home so that you are able to focus on specific spellings with your child.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask and we will support you the best that we can!


Thank you for your continued support smiley

The Queens Hat!

To begin the half term, we shared a story called 'The Queens Hat'. To our surprise, we received a letter from The Queen asking for our help to find her favourite hat that had flown away in the wind.


Year 1 were so eager to help, we decided to create MISSING posters and stuck them all around our school in hope that someone will spot the royal blue hat. Our posters were so eye-catching that all of our friends in KS2 were on the hunt too!



South Yorkshire transport museum!


To celebrate the learning in our topic for this half term, we visited South Yorkshire transport museum on a heritage bus! We loved every moment!


The wheels on the bus go round and round...

Enterprise week!



In Year 1 we had great fun preparing for the school's Winter Fayre! We firstly designed a plan for our wonderful products to prepare how we would like our baubles to look like, what materials we would need and how much they would cost.




We worked super hard to create our beautiful baubles! We also worked together to make decorations for our stall such as posters, banners and price tags.

Take a look at the fun that we have had!
