French Day-Year 1

Year 1 had a fantastique French day. We looked at Disney Land Paris and used a French recipe, sable, to make Disney themed biscuits. We also enjoyed the Can-can with Miss Lowe. The children also got creative in the afternoon and used the Lego to make models of the Eifel tower as well as creating some magnifique artwork inspired by George Seurat.

Year 1-Miss Hill’s Class -Carers Day

Year 1 enjoyed Carers Day last week. They participated with a Money Sense lesson and identified where money comes from.

They were lucky enough to have a workshop with West Mercia Search and Rescue. They children were told about how the search and rescue team work hard to find and rescue people across all different terrains including on water and in woodlands. They showed the children their uniform and different equipment that they use.

The children were taught  (SAFE):

The children also had a visit from a local farmer from PDM. They learnt about the different job types involved with farming and were able to learn about cultivation and groundwork. The children used their knowledge from their science unit, Plants, to help identify what lettuce would need in order to grow. They then tried different types of lettuce and went outside to look at a tractor. They had a great time!



Nature Walk -Miss Hill’s Class

Year 1 has a fantastic morning on their nature walk. We discussed the changes in the season and compared the leaves on the trees to Autumn. We identified that the leaves had fully regrown onto the trees and that they were bright green.

We also used our scientific knowledge of plants to identify flowers on our nature walk. We were able to confidently label the parts of a plant. We enjoyed exploring and being in nature.


Year 1 Phonics Screening Check

Today, your child will be coming home with a set of words to practise for the Phonics Screening Check. There will be both real and nonsense words for the children to read, checking that they can apply their phonetic knowledge.

The children will be completing their Phonics Screening Check the week beginning 10th June (the checks will be taking place throughout the week).

We will send out a leaflet for parents/carers produced by the Department for Education one week before the check with further information.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please speak to a member of staff in Year 1.

Thank you for your continued support.
