Hungry Caterpillars in Year 1!

It’s been a busy week in Year 1. We have been learning about the story, The Hungry Caterpillar and retelling it, thinking about all the different foods it ate. We have also been watching our own ‘hungry’ caterpillars in class, who have now all made their cocoons and we are waiting to see them turn into butterflies.

Reading books: Yesterday, we sent home books for your children to read with you. By the end of this week, you should have two books, one ORT (tree) book and one Big Cat book. Please could you ensure your child’s books come into school everyday, where the children can put them in their trays. The Big Cat book can be changed as frequently as you like but the ORT book will be changed, when needed, when your child reads with their teacher. 

Google Classrooms: If your child is off school due to self-isolation and is well enough to learn, then please log-in to your google classroom account and look in the Year group page classwork area, where work will be posted. Spellings will be coming home soon and will be found on the individual child’s classroom page, so please check that you can log-in. 

Thank you for all your support. any queries and questions, then please contact us on

What a great first week in Year 1!

It’s been a fantastic week in Year 1 and it has been great seeing all the children back in school. The children have settled well into their new routines and have done some brilliant learning. We have been doing lots of discovering with our friends and have started learning about our senses as part of our new project, Sensational Senses. This week we have been exploring different numbers in our maths and learning to represent them in different ways.

We have also thought about things that we are thankful for and have written some thank you prayers. Today we thought about our first week in Year 1 and wrote about what we had enjoyed and learnt about this week.


Notices: PE starts next week so please send your child to school in their PE kit on their day. 

1C – Thursday

1J/1P – Friday

Well done everyone for a fantastic first week. Thank you for all your support in making your child’s first week successful. We hope you have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing you on Monday.
