Keeping children safe in school is the most important role we play. If you have any serious concerns about any child, please speak to Mrs Walpole or Mrs Stoddern.


This week Year 1 have been very busy learning the names of 2d shapes.  After we became super shape spotters, we made patterns and then challenged our partners to extend them.  Finally, we created pictures using the different shapes.  It was brilliant fun!

This week in Year 1 we have been learning about first aid in PSHE. We discussed what we need to do in an emergency and how to give CPR if someone stops breathing. Both classes really enjoyed practicing on the Anne dolls.

Year 1. We are computer whizz kids! We have been developing our keyboard skills so we can log on independently. We had lots of fun playing letter rain, we had to type the letters and numbers as they appeared on the screen.

Year 1 have been learning about deciduous and evergreen trees in Science. The children went to the woods to investigate what the deciduous trees look like in autumn. The children found lots of sycamore and oak tree leaves on the ground. They compared the colour of the leaves and discussed how they looked different to the leaves which were still on the trees. Finally, we made predictions about what the trees would look like in the summer. A big thank you to all of the parents who helped on the trip.
