Welcome back!

We hope you had a lovely half-term. Year one certainly had an egg-citing start to the term!

During morning playtime a dinosaur wrecked havoc in our classroom. We found footprints, snow and hay. After much discussion, 1S decided that the dinosaur had laid an egg because there was lots of hay and the dinosaur may have used it to make a nest. We discussed where the dinosaur might be and decided it would probably be in the field so we set off outside to see if we could find the dinosaur and the egg in the rather snowy field! We split into teams and searched high and lo. We found 6 eggs in total! 1S decided that the eggs needed nests so then, in their teams, made a nest for each egg. They worked so well together to collaboratively make cosy nests.



Spring term in 1S so far has been very cool. We have been learning all about Polar Regions. We have been learning about what and where the Polar regions are and have also been learning about the different polar animals, particularly penguins! We were very lucky to have a visit from Tim Morley, who is a scientist. Tim spent 16 months on Bird Island in Antarctica researching wildlife there. He told us all about his time there, answered our questions and showed us his many incredible photographs and video footage. We were all in awe!

Thank you for visiting Tim and inspiring a future generation of scientists! no

KS1 Phonics workshop

Please remember to check book bags over half-term. Inside there are some important letters and notes, including: the half-term homework project, Christmas card designs, book fair catalogue.


There is also a reading beanstalk: this is for children to colour in each time they read so they can get reading certificates and eventually a prize! Keep up the great effort with reading at home smiley All children were given two new books for over half-term.


Have a lovely half term. See you on Monday 6th November!

Welcome to 1S


The children have settled into 1S brilliantly this half term and we have had a fantastic start to the year! I can already tell that we are going to have such fun! frown


This half term we are learning all about Our World, Near and Far.

We have been reading about the adventures of Paddington Bear and helping him write about all of the fun things he has seen and done in London!

This has involved learning a little bit about our capital city and some of the landmarks and as we couldn't go on a school trip to London, we used the iPads to go on a virtual tour and saw all of the sights!

You could have a look at this at home by visiting

We have used maps and atlases to see where Paddington travelled from and learnt about what it is like in Peru, comparing it to London.

We have created some fabulous Peruvian artwork and outfits; you can see some of them displayed in our classroom.

Over the next few weeks we will be learning about Autumn in Nottingham.


We will update our class page regularly to keep you up to date with our topics and any important dates. We will also post photographs of the children and their learning for you to enjoy!

Please refer to the attached links and documents for guidance on reading, spellings, handwriting etc. in order to best support your children at home.


Please remember to have a named P.E kit in school at all times for our P.E lessons with Mr Ward on Friday afternoons. These can go home at half term to be freshened up smiley

Please remember to label ALL school uniform to ensure it does not get lost, particularly cardigans and jumpers. smiley


We still need a few more parent reading volunteers (any other family members also welcome) so if you have any availability then please speak to one of the 1S team. Thank you!
