Year One liturgy

Well done Year One, your liturgy this Tuesday was absolutely fantastic, we are so proud of you. Your lines were loud and clear, you all knew when it was your turn to speak and when to wait for the actors to get in to position. Actors, you all knew when to come on and the lines you needed to wait for- well done everyone.

Thank you to all family members who attended and were able to worship with us. Please see below some photos if you were unable to attend.


Year One poetry competition

Wow! We are amazed at the amount of children who took part in the Year One poetry competition. We couldn’t believe how many children stood at the front reciting all those very long poems- we are so impressed. Well done to ALL of the children who took part, it was so hard to choose just three of you to go through to the whole school competition.

Congratulations to

They are through to the next round! We wish them the best of luck!

End of term

We can not believe how quickly this term has gone! Sadly it means the end of our ‘tale to tell’ topic but it does mean the start of a new one- TOYS!

We will be exploring fantastic new texts, for example ‘The way back home’ by Oliver Jeffers. We will also be exploring the world of lego, designing our own mini figures and finding out about the lego factory.

When we come back from half term, we will start off in maths looking at 2d shapes. We will be focusing on the orientation of shapes and exploring if a shape is still a shape even if it isn’t in the traditional format the children are used to seeing.

REMINDER- Tuesday 20th February after half term is our Year One liturgy. It will be held in the school hall at 10:15. All family members are welcome (the children have made invitations) and we have sent home the children’s words they will be saying to practice. If these could be practiced over half term that would be great! If your child does not have words, it means they are an actor. They can give you a sneak peak of the liturgy by showing you their part.

Have a lovely and restful half term everyone,

Year One team

Year One learning

Another busy week in Year One!

We have been getting to grips with days of the week and months of the year this week in maths (sorry if you have heard the songs continuously in your homes- they’ve been stuck in our heads too!) Leading on from this, next week we will be focusing on telling the time. In year One we need to be able to tell the time to the hour and half past the hour. This is something you may want to practice at home. If your child can already tell these times then challenge them with quarter past, quarter to and five minute intervals.

In English, we have started our next fairy tale- little red riding hood. What do our tales have in common so far? A BIG BAD WOLF! Now we have heard from Mrs Phillips in the office that he is not happy about not getting the job at our school. We hope he doesn’t pay us a visit…

In year One we will be holding our year group poetry competition on Thursday 8th February. A first, second and third place will be picked across the year group and will be entered in to the whole school competition. If your child would like to take part, ensure they have learnt their poem off by heart by then and bring in props on this day if needed.

Reminder- On the 20th February at 10:15 it is our liturgy service in the school hall. All family members are welcome to come and worship with us.

Parents evening is the 6th and 7th March- check the newsletter for when online bookings will be available.
