Splendid Skies

Splendid Skies 1

Splendid Skies 3

Imagine floating high above land and sea on a bed of clouds, silently sweeping by on a
billowing breeze.
Back down to earth, let’s take a walk outdoors. But what should we wear? Wellington boots? A sun hat? Maybe a warm coat? How do we know what the weather will be like
Ready and write poems and postcards… and, if you don’t like today’s weather report, why not write your own?
Send a message by balloon. Up, up and away it goes, high in the sky and over the rainbow. How far will the wind blow it? Where will it land and who will find it?
We are going to be learning about the weather, the sky, and how things change during the seasons.

Paws Claws and Whiskers

Paws Claws and Whiskers 2

Soft fur, sharp claws and twitching whiskers… What’s your favourite animal? One that  meows? One that barks? Or maybe one that scurries or slithers?
From pets at home to animals in the zoo, let’s find out what animals like to eat and where they like to sleep. Do you know how to look after a rabbit? A cat? Or even a snake?
Find out how the elephant got his trunk and how the rhinoceros got his leathery skin.. Perhaps you know how the dog got his waggy tail? Can you make a food chain to show who eats who? Who is the herbivore and who is the carnivore?
This term we will be learning about animals and what they eat, where they live and who to look after them.
Are animals similar to us? We will find this out.

P.S. Don’t forget our trip on Wednesday 5th June to Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

Year 1 Phonic Check 2

Reading is really important and we expect that your children are reading up to 4 times a week at home. Please make sure you are recording this in their yellow reading record books as these are checked on a weekly basis (usually a Wednesday morning) and a small prize is awarded for anyone reading 4 or more times during the week.

Year 1 Pupil Voice

Class Dojo


We are continuing to use the Class Dojo reward system, which the children are loving! It is a way for children parents and teachers to engage with their rewards. It is also a way of quick communication between parent and teacher. You can see updates on the class story and children can upload things onto their own stories. 
If you haven't yet got onto dojo or need help getting on please don't hesitate to ask your child's class teacher.
