Year 1 upcoming events


This half term we have been learning about e-safety and how to keep ourselves safe online. Please talk to your children about the importance of keeping personal details safe and secure and ‘stranger danger’.

It has been great to see some of the fun activities you have been doing at home on Tapestry! Keep us up-to-date!

Christmas is fast approaching and there are lots of dates for the diary coming up soon.

This Friday (17th November) is Children in Need and for a £1 donation children can come to school wearing their pyjamas and slippers. Then come along to the cake sale after school in the Key Stage 2 playground and please get baking and donate some delicious treats for a good cause.

Year 1 are now practising for their Christmas carol concert which will be held at 5pm on WEDNESDAY 13TH DECEMBER in the Key Stage 2 hall. This will be followed by a small treat for you made by the children! There will be no costumes but we would love the children to wear a Christmas jumper. We will send a letter out closer to the time to confirm details.


Thank you for all your support!

Is your child entitled to pupil premium?


We believe that every student at Wormley Primary should have the opportunity to achieve the best possible start to life. We are committed to breaking down any barriers to outstanding achievement and attainment.

The pupil premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to raise the achievement of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11. Funding is for children from low-income families who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (FSM ‘Ever 6’) or are looked after children or from families with parents in the Armed Forces. If you think your child may be eligible for this additional funding then let us know or visit:

Years 3 – 6: Use the above link to check eligibility and apply for pupil premium

Reception, Year 1 or 2: Although your child will automatically receive universal free school meals, you should still register on the above link as, if eligible, the school could get extra money to support your child

Pre-school & Nursery: Please speak  to the school directly

Help! Resources and skills needed



The Year 1 team are in desperate need of some equipment and skills that you may be able to offer. Some of you may be aware from September Year 1 have continued the child initiated learning approach from reception. The children are really benefitting from this but we have big plans of developing the indoor and outdoor area further. If you or someone you know could help us with sourcing the following we would be very grateful:

  • Wooden pallets for a mud kitchen and bug hotel.
  • Logs
  • Sports equipment
  • Two wheeled bikes and helmets
  • Small world toys (e.g. small animals, dinosaurs, people, dolls house, garage)
  • Someone with a van or trailer to transport branches from the woods for den building.
  • Someone with skills and time to help us construct a mud kitchen with the pallets.

Many thanks

Welcome to Year 1!


We hope you have enjoyed your first couple of weeks in year 1!

This week we will be starting our topic ‘Walking with Dinosaurs’. We had lots of fun in the Science Dome learning about different dinosaurs and how they lived. We will continue this learning over this half term and hope that you enjoy your home learning linked to this too!

Some other important reminders for year 1:

PE day is Wednesday…please remember that your PE kit must always be in school. We will send them home in the holidays for washing.

Everybody must have wellies in school every day for outdoor learning and Forest School.

Forest School will be starting in the next couple of weeks.

Please remember to read at home every night and practise your rainbow words. We would love volunteers to come and listen to the children read if you are available.

If you have any questions lease ask a member of the Year 1 team.

Thank you for your support!

Welcome back!


Welcome Back Desibucket Com


Welcome back everyone! We hope you had a lovely break! It was an extra special holiday for Miss Millard, now Mrs Hawkins who got married during the break = congratulations!!

We hope your children have had an ‘egg-cellent’ Easter full of adventures that they can tell us about and reading lots!

Our topic this term is Gardener’s World.  Children will be exploring plants and how they grow.  In English they will be learning to explore different fairy stories.

Phonics screening will take place for the year ones in June, so keep practicing those digraphs and trigraphs!!

We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow – we’ve missed you!

Miss Almond, Mrs Hawkins and Mrs Hansford
