Summer Term message from Mrs Eaves: 

Welcome back to school following our Easter holiday! 

This half term there will be a big focus on phonics ready for the Phonics Screener Check in June.  If you have any questions regarding these, please do not hesitate and come and see me. 

This half term in our DT lesson the children will be learning about where our food comes from - either a plant or an animal.  They will also learn how to prepare food - by either slicing, chopping or grating.  

We will also be learning about mass and using balance scales, and learn about capacity and volume.    

Please have a look at the fridge words linked below. These words are based on the vocabulary we are exploring within our topic and science lessons. How many of these can you learn?

Please take a look at the documents below so you know exactly what we will be learning this term.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask - I am happy to help!

Mrs Eaves

Wonderful Wednesday

What a WONDERFUL afternoon in Year One. Our parents and carers joined us for an afternoon of Science.  We used hand lenses and then microscopes to look at different things in close up detail. WOW!


World Book Day 2024

year1 teacher (K.Eaves) on: Year 1 Blog

What an incredible day at school. The children all looked amazing! They enjoyed learning all about the author Michael Rosen and enjoyed listening to some of his stories and very funny poems (take a look at 'Chocolate Cake').  They voted for their favourite story, from 'Not so little Red Riding Hood', We're going on a Bear Hunt' and 'Goldilocks and the Three Crocodiles', all by the author Michael Rosen.   We're Going on a Bear Hunt came in first place, a clear winner. Then in the afternoon our grown ups joined us and shared lots of stories.  The children had a wonderful time.
