Santa’s Mixed Up Martian

Today the children visited the Wimbledon Studio Theatre where they saw a special Santa show. They loved joining in with the songs and dancing. At the end of the performance they got the chance to meet Father Christmas where they gave him the letter that they had written him. When we got back to school everyone enjoyed a well deserved picnic! Everyone had such a lovely morning and the children made us all so proud!!!


Miss Whetren received an urgent call from Father Christmas explaining that there was a shortage of candy canes this year!! Before home time on Tuesday the children had great fun planting the candy cane seeds to help out Santa!! We hope they grow.



Today the Pantomime came to school!! Year One and Two had such fun watching the performance.



The Children enjoyed having their Christmas Dinner at school today!



Today Christmas arrived at school. The children had great fun decorating their classrooms and meeting the Elves that will be watching them and reporting back to Santa!!


Thank you to everyone who donated items to our class hampers. Remember you can purchase a raffle ticket from the class teacher for £1.

Red Class Hamper – Left. Orange Class Hamper – Right.


This week the children put their addition and subtraction skills to the test in order to find the missing numbers. They had to decide how to solve the problem and whether they needed to add or subtract the numbers that they had. The children have loved being presented with this challenge and are becoming fabulous mathematics. They are able to explain their workings and prove their answers in a variety of ways which is showing the depth of understanding that they have about the numbers that they are working with.


Today we had great fun raising money for Children in Need. Thank you to everyone that contributed. We all went to the hall to watch and sing in the A-Factor. We especially liked singing Let it Go from Frozen and Can’t Stop the Feeling from Trolls! Thank you to Year 6 for planning it.


This week we have also been thinking about the importance of kindness and friendship during anti-bullying week. As a class we each made a circle of friendship and discussed why we should always be kind to everyone to ensure that nobody feels left out or different.





We kicked our topic off last week with an amazing Paleontologist day! Thank you for all of the effort that you made with your outfits. The children had a great time searching for fossils and finding out what they are.

This week we also attended a Science Workshop where we thought about our taste buds. We tasted things that were bitter, sour, salty and sweet. We then made our own sherbet which we got to take home.




This week we have been using the part-whole model in maths to support addition. We have also been talking about our local area and how to find our school and homes on the local map.





Academic Year 2016/17 Red Class: Miss Sin & Miss Thompson & Mrs Hamilton-Lee

Academic Year 2016/17 Orange Class: Miss Bogle & Sandra, Mrs Kift & Mrs Pritchard

Wow! What an amazing day we have had!  I loved finding out what the children want to be when they grow up and to watch them run around the field to raise money for such a great cause.  Take a look at some of the photos!


Thank you to everyone who paid for the workshop! It was amazing.  The children had so much fun and did not want to leave!  They took part in lots of drama and really showed off their imaginative side.

Our workshop is coming up- please if you have not paid and wish for your child to attend please can the money be given into the office… the children are very excited for tomorrow!  The workshop is in school and the children do not have to bring anything other than if they wish to wear a pirate hat.  We will post photos to follow.

Also we have our FUN RUN on Friday!  We cannot wait to see all of the children dressed up as what they want to be when they are older and take part in the sponsored run!  We will be taking sponsor forms and money in from Friday!

Wow, what a busy week we have!  The school fair is coming up.  Have an amazing time- we can’t wait to hear about what the children loved.


Thank you to everybody who attended the Bingo at school on Friday night.  It sounded like an amazing evening and I can’t wait to attend the next one.

It was a big week for Orange Class this week as for the second time only this year we won the attendance cup and to top it off we were the first class to get 100%.  We were so excited and can’t wait to look after the trophy all week!

Just a little reminder, please remember to read with your children at home.  We have recently introduced adding an extra 5 golden minutes for those children who have read 4 or more times at home!  




Another busy week!  Last week in Literacy we have been looking at writing instructions. We looked at how to plant a plant and then followed a child’s instructions to see if they included all of the important steps.  They did brilliantly!  This week we are going to look at many different reasons to write instructions such as how to run a bath, how to make cakes, how to build a lego house.

In Maths we looked at measuring!  We learnt how to measure length using a ruler, measure capacity and measure weight.  The children even had a go at measuring themselves and we found out who the tallest and shortest members of Year 1 are. 

We also had Explore Learning come in and visit Year One.  The children loved it and the teachers could not believe how amazing all of the children were!  They showed off their amazing Maths skills and did us all proud.

Welcome back!  We hope you all had a lovely Easter.  The children have been sharing some of the wonderful things you all got up to!

Since being back, we have already achieved so much in Year 1.  In Maths, we have been looking at writing our numbers correctly in both numerals and words.  The children were brilliant.  I know writing numbers in words is tricky, but for those finding the spellings challenging we used word mats to help us and began to recognise the correct words.

During Literacy, we started our new theme ‘The Secret Garden’.  We began by looking at poetry- carefully focusing on similes and rhyming poems.  The children had a go at performing a poem- what great actors they were- as well as writing their own.

Also, thank you to everybody who took the time to work alongside their child to complete a project! They were brilliant.  They are now on display outside the classroom for the rest of the school to see.  Well done to our project winners!


Have an amazing Easter everybody!

Last week already! Time flies when you’re having fun.  Thank you to everyone who paid for their child to come on the trip and prepared them a packed lunch.  We had an amazing day at Painshill Park and great weather for it too.  First, we went on on a pirate treasure hunt around the park using clues to help us get to the next place.  After walking a long way we arrived at the treasure and each of us dug up a bouncy ball.  After lunch, we then went on an adult led activity.  A storyteller had several props and we participated in lots of activities such as building houses for the three little pigs.


This week we have been reading the story ‘Jack and The Beanstalk’.  We wrote our own stories and shared them with the class.  We then ordered a set of instructions of how to plant a bean.  The children’s favourite part of the week was the Science experiment they undertook.  The children made predictions about whether or not the bean would grow if they used water, oil, shampoo, coke, orange juice and then had a go at planting a bean and soaking the soil with on the liquids.  We now have monitors in the class who soak the bean everyday waiting to see if any of them grow.  Have a look through our windows, they are on the window seal!



The children are very excited today, it is DISCO day!



Another busy week in Year 1.  This week we have been reading the story The Gingerbread Man.  The children have ordered the story and had a go at writing the middle with the focus of adjectives.  What a great job they did.  They also designed their own Gingerbread Man because next week we are going to be writing instructions and making our own!  

In Maths,  we have been learning about halving and quartering.  We began looking at shapes to help the children visualise it and we are moving on to quantities today.  

Just a quick reminder:  The school trip email has been sent out, please remember we cannot take any cash, it should all be paid over the internet.  Thank you!  


What a great day we had yesterday!!  The children looked fantastic in their dressing up costumes and love pretending to be the character all day.  Thank you to you all for buying, making or putting together an outfit to make the children’s day memorable.

The children took some selfies on the camera!

Please check your emails for information about the next school trip!

This week in school we have been reading the story The Enormous Turnip.  The children have looked carefully at the story, created a story map and then wrote the beginning of the story.  

The children were so excited about pancake day on Tuesday.  We spoke about pancake day and lent.  We then designed our own pancakes and made our own.


In Maths our focus has been length.  We began by looking at non standard measurement using cubes, making an estimate first.  We then taught the children standard measurement- how to use a ruler accurately to the whole and 0.5 of a number.  

Wow! What a great first week back we have had!  Thank you for spending your time over the half term to create a project with your child!  The children loved sharing them and now are now using them to act out the stories.

Thank you to everybody for the great traditional tale costumes too!  It is World Book Day next Thursday- why not wear those costumes again?

Yesterday we also went to watch the Year 4 Drumming Performance!  The children loved listening to the different instruments being played and they can’t wait to have their turn!

Welcome back!  We hope you all had a lovely half term!

Last half term we were so busy, the children really enjoyed the topic ‘Jurassic World’ and are now able to share lots of information about dinosaurs.  Thank you to the parents who let their children bring in books, toys etc.  They made our classroom a lot more engaging and the children enjoyed sharing them with their friends.

This half term our topic is ‘Once Upon A Time’ where we will be looking at traditional tales.  We can’t wait to see you all in your costumes tomorrow!  We are also looking into booking our school trip for this topic and we will keep you updated.

Thank you to everyone who has sent their child’s costume in for the school play.  If you have not done so already please send it in as soon as possible.

This week in Maths we continued to look at money.  We went shopping in the classroom and bought two items.  We then had a go at adding them together using our heads or number lines.  We also looked at giving change by subtracting an item from an out of money!  We then started to use our adding and subtracting skills by working out worded problems!  The children did great!

During theme we have looked at materials.  We read the story ‘What if rain boots were made of paper?’.  The children then thought of their own questions and we had a go at predicting what would happen and then had a go at testing it.  One of our favourite questions was ‘What is a boat was made out of paper?’.


Lastly, thank you to everybody who brought in money for children in need.  We have had a great time.  On Thursday we went up to the hall and contributed to the big money pudsey and this afternoon we went outside and took part in the obstacle course on the field.  The children has so much fun and were brilliant at balancing on some of the equipment.  Unfortunately we didn’t get any pictures of the obstacle course as we were too busy taking part too!!



Thank you to everybody who has returned the school trip letter with money!  It is such an exciting trip and we cannot wait to meet Santa on Thursday 15th December.

Also a big thank you to everybody who brought something into school for mufti day to go towards our Christmas present shop that the Year 6’s run!

As you aware, we have started our Christmas play rehearsals. Please learn the lines with your child at home if you can! Thank you!

Wow, what another busy week!  This week we have been reading the story The Great Pet Sale so it was lovely when the children brought in their pets.  We made a shop and pretended to buy our pets using real money.  We continued to look at money this week and the children have been fantastic and adding up amounts! 

We were also very lucky this week to have a taster Spanish lesson!  The children were great and learnt how to say hello, how are you and respond to the question.  We loved it.  It was also lovely to see some children show off their fluent speaking in Spanish! Well done Mateo!

On Thursday we had the disco!  The children all looked lovely in their outfits and danced the afternoon away whilst enjoying lots of sweets and drinks.  

Today, (Friday 11th Novemember)  Year 1 spent the morning learning about Remembrance Day and made our own poppies.  We then went outside with the rest of the school to take part in a 1 minute silence. 

We hope you all had a lovely half term!  Thank you for all your amazing projects!!  What a first week back! We have had Science week and we’ve had so much fun.  We have been SUPER SCIENTISTS!

First we looked at a range of materials and took part in lots of activities related.  Our favourite was making our own superhero capes.  We spoke about what materials would keep us dry, warm, cool etc.

We then recieved a letter from Kristoff (the bad guy in Frozen) to say that he had captured our friends in ice and it was our duty to save them.  We went on to disucss how we could melt the ice!  Some suggestions “Use a hairdryer”, “Put it outside” and “Pour hot water over it”.  Then some of us had a go at an experiment.  We predicted whether we thought salt, flour, oil or soap would melt the ice and the result was that salt melts the ice really quickly!  What a fun day!  

Yesterday we moved on to look at sound!  We played a game to see if we could guess the sounds and the children were brilliant!  We then made our own super hero telephones and passed super messages through them!!

What a fun week!  In Maths we looked at super counting and finding out about money!  The children focused on identifying the coins and understanding the value.

We had so much fun learning about Harvest at school.  Look at the lovely baskets we made.  Also a huge thank you to everyone who donated lots of food!


This week we started our week with a crime scene!  An EvilPpea had messed up our classroom and the Supertato came in to save the day!  The children spent the week writing missing letters, crime scene reports and even making traps to catch the Evil Pea.


Last week we looked at the famous story The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We looked at lots of fruit and completed lots of activities to do with the story.

Our class favourite was making our own fruit salad or kebab and eating it in the classroom! The children loved it!


Both Mrs Vietri and I have loved our theme topic ‘Me & You, You & Me’ and particularly enjoyed finding out about all of your families!    Thanks to everyone who brought in family photos.

On Wednesday we had RE day. Throughout the day the children spent time learning about this faith. There were opportunities to handle artifacts, watch a video, listen to a story and picture talk about various Jewish celebrations.

Brian the Brain Cell


Every week we will be choosing two children in year One to take home Brian the Brain Cell for the weekend, he comes back to school on Mondays. This is awarded to any child that puts in a lot of effort during lessons. So far Luke, Rosie, Budde, Posi, Aaron, and Amy R have taken him home – well done!

Writer of the Week

In Orange Class the writer of last week was Kishani and the writer of this week is Ali for his exciting sentence starters – well done! In Red Class the writer of last week was Adam Daines for using capital letters and full stops correctly and this week it is Ethan Fitzgerald for using full stops correctly – well done! All of their work will be displayed in the gym on the ‘Wow Wall’.

You & Me, Me & You!

This week Year One have been looking at how we can stay healthy and what our bodies need to stay healthy. The children have started to practise for our fitness video that we will be filming later this month. After learning about a good healthy balanced diet and looking at where fruits and vegetables grow, they children were given a free-flow afternoon which enabled them to interact in a variety of fruity activities such as making fruit kebabs. It was a lot of fun!


 Writer of the Week

Each week we celebrate a ‘Writer of the Week’.  In Orange Class the writers of the week were Manal and Ronnie – well done! In Red Class the writers of the week were Ruchindra and Vivien – well done! All of their work will be displayed in the gym on the ‘Wow Wall’.

You & Me, Me & You!

So far in our first theme this term we have been learning about ourselves, our families, Picasso style artwork, self portraits, and body percussion. We are looking forward to investigating You & Me, Me & You in more detail as this term continues.

Book Week

Our first week in Year One was Book Week. We looked at a book written by Anthony Browne. Our book focus was ‘SILLY BILLY’. We have looked through the book and completed lots of activities including various writing activities, picture talk, making and painting worry dolls. All the children enjoyed reading this book.
