Yellow Class and Green Class


Welcome to the team, taught by Mrs Wigston and Mrs Pettifer

Mrs Wigston -

 Mrs Pettifer - 

That's it! We're past the halfway mark! Another 4 days that have been packed to the brim with fun and learning. Our voyage through South America has landed us in Peru and the rainforest has been a big park of our week. We've also been looking at Aztec type art work as the children work on making clay masks - some looked very scary!!

The homework for this week is here - HOMEWORK FRIDAY 7TH MAY

And now to the fab winners of our Head Teacher's awards...

Green Class - Grayson

Have a great week! Green Class will be having their last Forest School sessions on Wednesday - we hope they have enjoyed their science and explorations.


The end of our third week and what a lot we have done in four short days! Our country this week has been Brazil and our learning has been so much fun. Green Class have been learning to samba in PE whilst Yellow Class looked at the rainforest and why it is in danger. We've found out about the Rio Olympics and the annual carnival as well as learning about the fabulous street artist Eduardo Kobra.

Here are the children, hard at work on their own versions of Kobra's amazing shape and colour work...

No Head Teacher's awardees this week as we're not here on Friday - look out for next week's winners!

Lastly for this week, here is the link to the homework in case you're struggling. HOMEWORK THURSDAY 30TH APRIL

Have a fab Bank Holiday!! Please let the sun shine!!


Our second week has come and gone! We have been learning all about Japan this week and Yellow Class have done some beautiful cherry blossom art whilst Green Class have compared similarities and differences of the lives of two boys in Tokyo and London.

We are really looking forward to all the Year 1 children being able to play together at morning playtime next week - it's starting to feel like slowly getting back to a real normal. 

It has been brought to our attention that some families are still having issues with Teams so each week's homework will be accessible through a hyperlink on this page. Here is this week's homework link - HOMEWORK Friday 23rd April. 


Time to celebrate...

Welcome back to another (hopefully warmer!) term of learning.. We hope you all had a great Easter holiday and that the Easter bunny was kind to you all!

Our spring newsletter can be read HERE.

The children have loved the start of our new topic 'Around The World'. On Monday, they went on a hunt on the field and found pictures of the flags of lots of different countries. We've looked at them together and discovered that they are from countries from nearby (like France and Germany) as well as very far away (such as India and Canada). This week we looked at our first country, India and learned about the sad story of the Taj Mahal. I wonder what country will be next?

Read our overview HERE to see more about what we are going to be learning.

Green Class had a super time in their first Forest School session - they were installing some hedgehog houses and looking at what has changed since they were there in the winter.

In Maths this week we have been looking at splitting numbers into tens and ones (this is called partitioning) and how many tens and ones are in various numbers. In Literacy, we have been reminding ourselves all about instructions and how to write them. All our instructions this week have been about hand washing - very important just now!

Let's have a look at who earned our Head Teachers's Awards this week;

Yellow Class - Grace

Green Class - our awardee was absent so it rolled over to after the holiday


Another week done! And only one more week until the Easter holiday (and lots of chocolate!).

We've had a great week learning about measures and writing books. It all culminated in Red Nose Day of Friday and it was fab to see everyone in their red clothes. We talked about why this fab charity is needed and why it is important to help others less lucky than we are.

One more week - five school days - to go. Mrs Wigston and Mrs Pettifer are looking forward to our brief chat with all the grown ups this week. See you there!

Welcome back everybody!

It has been so lovely to have all the children back in school this week. We missed you all so much. Everyone has settled back in really well and it's like we've never been away! The children have been working hard and having lots of fun with all their learning, culminating in a fantastic World Book Day. Everyone came in in the most fantastic costumes and looked amazing. Have a look at the newsletter this week for some great pictures!

We are looking forward to continuing the fun and learning on our way to Easter.

We are builders!

As part of or 'Down by the Riverbank' topic, we have been discussing the form and function of bridges. The children collected materials from home and were challenged to design and build a bridge. They were also able to test their bridge over a 'river'. Have a look at how they got on...

Autumn Term

We would like to welcome you to our Year 1 information page.  We will put regular updates on what the children have been up to during the term, including pictures so you can see what they have been doing. 

As we are unable to chat to you at the door before or after school, please feel free to contact us via email on the addresses above


 What a surprise the children had when they came in from lunch last Monday.  Something had been in the classrooms and left big footprints all over their chairs.  What could it be?


After some discussion the children discovered that these were the paw prints of badgers, otters, foxes and ducks.  This was a lovely introduction to our topic 'Down By The Riverbank'.

If you would like to know a little more about our topic the overview is on the link below.
