21/09/18 Measuring Fun in Maths!


Children have spent the last two days in Maths exploring non-standard and standard measuring.  We have begun to use rulers and measure more accurately in centimetres.  Children have been prompted to use vocabulary such as longest, shortest, tallest, widest and narrowest as they measure.


If you have a ruler or tape measure at home your child could try measuring some of their favourite toys or even their brothers or sisters perhaps as a challenge!

14/09/18 - New Routines and Home Support Updates



Firstly, a big thank you to all the Parents who attended the Meet the Parent Meeting this Wednesday.  It was so nice to meet many of you.  For those of you that were unable to attend we have sent home the information packs for you to read over.  Please ask if you have any questions.


The Information packs and slides give further information but you will notice your child has come home tonight with their new Spelling and Sight Word Green books.  We kindly ask that you and/or your child do not write in these books.  They also now have their personal Mathletics and Reading Egg logins attached to their Reading Packets, again all explained in the meeting notes but please ask if you are having trouble.


Enjoy your Weekend


The Year One Team



07/09/18 - Welcome to the Woodpeckers!


We have completed our first week back in Year One and the children have settled into their new routines and environment very well.  Although we have had a few early mentions of 'tiredness' the children have attempted all the challenges set with enthusiasm and smiles and made us feel very proud to welcome them into our class.  We hope it continues!


Please help your child each day by making sure they have their:

  • Book bag and reading packet - signed if you read each night
  • Lunch box or dinner ticket
  • Named 'school style' water bottle - water only please
  • Named PE kit in school


PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday with the Wednesday currently scheduled as swimming for this half term.


Library day will be on a Friday when we get the children's login details set up and running.


We look forward to meeting you and passing over curriculum and other key information at the 'Meet the Teacher' Meeting next Wednesday at 2:45pm in the school hall.


Any other concerns please catch one of us at the door in the mornings or ask to speak to us at the office...we are all very approachable!


Many thanks


Mrs Foulser, Miss Dodkins and Mrs Martin
