We will be visiting the local museum and learning all about castles and Knights.

We are now going to continue our learning on Dragons - we had a very exciting baby dragon visit us this week and we do not want to stop learning all about dragons!


Rainbow challenges.

This year In Year One we are using continuous porovision in the afternoons. This helps to ease transition from the early years and consolidate the childrens learning.

Each area is colour coded with a coloured lollipop stick and a couloured challenge linked to what the children are learning. when your child completes a challnge to the expected standard they will then recieve a lollipop stick which is displayed in our classroom when your child has all five coulours they will recieve a prize from our prize box.

Yellow – Construction challenge
Green – Writing challenge
Purple – Topic Challenge
Blue – Creative challenge
Orange – Woodwork area.




P.E will be on a Thursday . Children will need a full P.E kit in school every day and this should include a white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps. 


Reading books and Homework:

Reading books will be changed on a weekly basis and we would appreciate if you could read with your child each night. Your children will recieve spelling on a friday to learn at home and will be tested in school the following friday. I would be grateful if you would assist by completing the record sheet each night on your child’s behalf for spellings, reading and times tables.



Key words - These are specific to your child and will be tested on a one to one basis every two weeks.        (These will be given to your child in due course)

Topic and Science words - These will be sent home every Friday to be tested in class the following Friday. 



If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact myself or Miss Fothergill.


Thank you,

Miss McDermott
