Marbles in a Jar

Congratulations  Year 1 you have reached Level 2 on your marble jar and now have the treat of making mini pizzas.


The children have worked hard and earned marbles for excellent behaviour and learning. Level 3 earns them cupcakes made by Mrs Kirkbride, so start earning those marbles! 

Wingham Wildlife Park Visit

The children in Year 1 are off to Wingham Wildlife Park to explore the dinosaurs and animals from different continents. The trip is on Thursday 30th January 2020 and the children need to bring a packed lunch in a rucksack. 



Thank you for our Christmas Presents

The Year 1 staff and Mrs Kirkbride would like to say a big thank you for our wonderful presents. It was very generous of you all to think of us at Christmas.


We all hope you have a wonderful Christmas and we look forward to working with you all in the New Year.


Term 3

The Term 3 curriculum overview is now ready to view on the curriculum page.


The topic is Dinosaurs, linked to the continents in Geography and the story of Mary Anning in History. 

I am also currently planning a trip for the children to Wingham Wildlife Park with Mrs Fulton (our Education Visit Coordinatior). More information will follow in a letter in Term 3.

Maths in Year 1

The children have been working hard this term on addition and subtraction. They have been mastering the part, part, whole model and applying this to their problem solving. 

Keep up the good work, I am very proud of you all.

Reading in Year 1
Thank you to all the Year 1 parents who have supported their child’s reading through practising their sounds and hearing them read regularly. This support really does help your child to become confident readers and writers. 

I had a lovely visit yesterday from 3 children who have been practicing their sounds at home and now know them all! Well done to them and their parents.

Writing in Year 1
The children in Year 1 have been working really hard this term on their writing. I am so please with the progress they have made with their sentence writing.
