Year 1

Welcome to Year 1


Reading at Home

READING IS VERY IMPORTANT. Reading opens up the world of learning to children. Parents can support this 'reading journey' through regular reading at home. Reading to and with your child every evening for at least ten minutes can make a dramatic difference to a child's achievement within school. 

Thank you for your continued support.




** Our PE days this term are Tuesday's and Wednesday's.  Please can you ensure that your child has a PE kit which incorporates clothing for inside and outside lessons, thank you**

We were so excited to find frogspawn in our classroom today! 

We will be watching how they grow and change over the next couple of weeks. In English we will be writing an explanation text on 'the life cycle of a frog'.

Fair Trade - Logo Making

Last term in science the children were learning about ‘Animals including humans’. The children had already learnt all about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. To end this topic, this week the children worked as scientist to identify and classify different animals.They investigated and dissected different animal poo using prior knowledge to help them identify each one.

Don’t worry it is not real poo!

Today we went outside to observe the signs of winter. We used our senses to describe the signs of winter. When returning to the classroom we wrote winter poems and created winter artwork.

Year 1 & Year 2 Nativity

Congratulations to all the Year 1 and Year 2 children who performed their Nativity Play so wonderfully to their parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles on Monday and Tuesday. You are all little stars. Thank you to everyone who came and watched them perform and for the generous donations you made to CAFOD and for purchasing raffle tickets from the Friends of St. Peter’s to raise money for Sports equipment here at school.

Friday 5th October


Just to advise we are going to be making our castles in both Years 1 and 2, on Friday this week.  We have sent a note home asking that your child brings in something to wear over their clothes to protect them eg. an old t shirt, an old shirt or an apron.  We will be getting messy with paint and glue!
