The Golden Moment this week goes to the whole of Year 1 – well done to you all!

A big thank you to all parents, grandparents and class reps for their continued support during the year.

Thank you also for the kind words of thanks, cards, beautiful flowers, presents and gift vouchers that you gave to us. Mrs Serra and I were overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity.

We hope that you all have a well-deserved relaxing summer holiday.  

God bless you all and keep safe and well.

Hi Everyone

Cannot quite believe that we are fast approaching the end of another school year and what a year it has been!

In our English and Phonics lessons, we began this week recapping on suffixes. We also used an activity pack from the ‘Literacy Shed’ called ‘The Bridge’. The children enjoyed watching the short video clip. Afterwards, they sequenced the events of the story. We will continue to use this clip next week to complete various Literacy activities.

During our Maths, the children were counting in 2s and solving word problems to reinforce their knowledge.  

The children enjoyed observing how ‘glow in the dark’ ice cubes were created during our Science lesson.

Through our topic work, we found out about amphibians and created the life cycle of a frog.

Next week, we will be collecting reading books in. A box will be placed outside the Year 1 gate so that the children can pop their books into it.

I hope that we will have some good weather next week as we have planned a sports afternoon within our bubble for the children to enjoy. We also have some other fun activities planned.

Enjoy the weekend!

The children have had a very busy week. They are continuing to amaze Mrs Serra and me with how hard they are working.

They have really enjoyed the Dear Earth book which has given them the opportunity to think about our planet and how we can look after our earth. There were many discussions this week and gave the children lots to think about. I was very impressed with the children’s knowledge of global warming, animals that are becoming extinct, recycling and how we can protect our earth.

At the end of the week, they wrote a letter to ‘Earth’.

In Maths, we have been using the clocks to tell the time using the language of o’clock and half past. We have also been thinking about intervals of time such as ‘one hour later’ and ‘one hour earlier’. We will continue working on ‘time’ at the beginning of next week.

 In RE, the children have been thinking about the qualities of a good friend.

 Our topic work links well with our Science this term and the children enjoyed creating a poster about the characteristics of ‘Fish’.


The children worked hard in Art and Design and created pictures inspired by the work of Henri Rousseau. They were able to follow instructions via you tube to create their amazing tigers. Lots of colour mixing and cutting was required but I am sure you will agree the pictures look absolutely fabulous. 

The ‘Golden Moment’ in Group 1 goes to Ralph

this week for his contributions to our class discussion on how we can protect our earth.

The ‘Golden Moment’ in Group 2 goes to Hanna this week for her amazing Art work.

Well done to both children!

Next week, in our topic work we will be looking at amphibians and the life cycle of a frog.  

In English, we will be revisiting suffixes – est, ed, ing, er. We will also be using some of the activities on BBC Bitesize.

For Maths, we will be revisiting place value and numbers to 50 and beyond.

Have a lovely weekend!

Hi Everybody

What a sizzling week!

In Maths, the children have been busy finding halves and quarters of numbers and shapes.

In English, the children have created a new animal and written a postcard to send to a friend to tell them all about it. They have also completed a simple report about elephants.

The children listened to the story of The Good Samaritan in RE. Afterwards, they discussed who was a good neighbour to the injured man and then retold the story in their own words.

Through our topic work, we have been classifying birds.

Henry did really well spotting birds and recording them. He also created a lovely collage of a robin.

In Art and Design, the children looked at the work of William Morris and how pattern was used in his work.

The Golden Moment this week goes to Marina in Group 1.

Marina was able to retell the story of The Good Samaritan beautifully.

The Golden Moment in Group 2 goes to Conor.

Mrs Serra was very impressed with Conor’s mathematical ability on his work with fractions this week. A very well done to both children!

Next week in English, we will be reading the story of ‘Dear Earth’ by Isabel Otter, which will provide opportunities for children to think about how we can look after our planet. We will working towards writing a letter about what we love about our earth.

In Maths, the focus will be on telling the time. The children will be using language such as clockwise, anti-clockwise, o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. They will also be counting in 5s and solving problems related to time.

 In RE, the children will be thinking about how they can be a good friend to their neighbour.

Through our topic work, we will be finding out about the characteristics of fish and the children will be creating a poster.

In our Science work, we will be focussing on the sense of smell.

Happy Weekend!

Mrs Myers & Mrs Serra
