Year 1

Team building with Y2. Great negotiating and listening skills.

Thanks to the 'The Party Animals' we were able to have some amazing hands on experience with many fascinating creatures. First up - snakes...

Some invertebrates!

Blue tongue Skink, Monitor Lizard, Chameleon and more!

Mammals - Red foxes, Meerkats and Raccoons

We had amazing time at the Tower of London. Thank you to all our helpers who made the day extra special. The children were fantastic when acting the story of the Great Fire during our taught session. Super proud of you all Team 1!

An amazing day spent with Year 6 planning and building Tudor Houses ready for our WOW day in Term 6!

Phonic detectives!

We have been learning to write using a quill, just like Samuel Pepys. Some of his entries were written in code to confuse any readers. Can you work out our code writing?

Teamwork to measure the playground.

Team 1 are continuing to make the most of the good weather - painting using sticks and fingers of our beautiful blossom trees in forest school time.

A visit to Oakham Fire Station to find out more about how we fight fires now compared to The Great Fire of London in 1666!

Term 5, Wow!

Welcome back – We hope that you have had a great time over the Easter Break and are fully refreshed for the penultimate term in Year 1.



This term our topic will be on ‘The Great Fire of London’. Thank you all for your suggestions, again some fantastic ideas which the children have generated.


We will build our own Pudding Lane and become newspaper reporters, writing eye-witness accounts of the GFOL. And so much more!


Please continue to access the ‘Active Learn’ homework. These fun games are designed to consolidate learning. The children also have time in school to complete the given tasks.


This term PE will continue to be on Thursday’s and Friday’s, so please ensure that all kit is named clearly and at school every day.  


Please remember to have wellington boots at school so that we can continue our outdoor learning. As you will have noticed we are becoming very ‘green fingered’ thanks to the help of Mrs Ross.                                              


We will aim to have a weekly trip to our library where the children can experience a range of books and can choose a book to bring home to share. Please return this book by the following Monday to ensure that the children can choose a new book to take home.



The children are making amazing progress with their reading. Please continue to question your child’s understanding of the text to help develop their comprehension skills. Please ask if you would like some question prompts. Your child will read during school time in RWI sessions, with Mr and Mrs Johns and with myself or Mrs Landy.

Learning logs will come home every other Friday with an activity to complete linked to their learning from school.

There will be a flyer coming home about ‘Show and Tell’.

Please come in to talk to us at any time. After school is easier for longer conversations or email the school office if this is more convenient.


Thank you!

Team 1


Class One Families, please come to our class assembly on Friday 27th March at 2.45pm in the school hall!


Such a busy start to Term 4 - check out our learning so far!

We had a super time learning about forces during a Mad Science morning...
