Year 1 update


What a fantastic Science week we have had. The children have loved learning about birds and the chicks have finally hatched.


Next Thursday 28th March will be an inter-house sports day. Children will need to come to school in jogging bottoms, trainers and a t-shirt of their house colour. Letters will be sent out today notifying you of the colour. They will take part in either dodge ball, football, athletics or multi sports.

Mothers day gifts are still being sold on the KS2 playground after school if children would like to buy a gift.

Love your planet in Year 1


This week is ‘Love your Planet’ week and we are learning about ways we can look after our planet. Today we have been learning about recycling. We have talked about categorising materials and collected litter from around the school grounds.

Encourage your child to help with sorting and recycling rubbish this week and discuss the impact of this on the environment.

Please bring in any non-recyclable plastic that will fit into the top of a bottle as we are making eco bricks.
