Phonics Screening Check 


As you may be aware, during the week beginning Monday 6th June, your child will experience a phonics screening check. Phonics teaches people to read by relating sounds with letters and words. The phonics screening check is designed to check whether pupils understand phonics to an appropriate standard. We have been working hard in school to deliver quality phonics lessons throughout Key Stage 1 using the scheme Read, Write Inc and we are so pleased with the positive impact this is having on your children's phonics understanding and reading progress. 


How can I support my child with phonics at home? 


Please use the links below to watch videos and do some phonics activities at home with your child to boost their confidence in readiness for the phonics screening check. We will also send some useful phonics resources home with your children too. Thank you! 



Phonics videos - available to watch until 6th June

Christmas Newletter

Making our castles!

Our Nativity - Whoopsy Daisy Angel

Here are the songs words for our nativity!

21st October 2021

Dear Year 1 parents,


We just want to say how proud we are of the Year 1’s. They have really settled in well to their new routines and have been working very hard this term! 😊 Over the holidays, you may like some additional work to do with your children:


  • Year 1 reading question sheet – to help develop your child’s understanding when becoming more confident with a book (see below). 
  • Phase 3 phonics sounds – please practice reading these sounds (picture clues underneath). If your child becomes confident with them, they can practise writing the sound upon hearing it (see below). 
  • Maths – Next term we will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes. Keep a look out for them around the house and out and about to help your child learn their names! (shape activity ideas below too)


Wishing you a happy and healthy half term! 😊


Miss Todd and Mrs Kirk

BOOK CHANGES - Every Monday


We have a designated adult who changes all the children's books on a Monday as it is a big task! Please try to remember to send your child in with their books and reading diaries on this day so this can be done (we understand that on occasions you might forget - we are all human!).


If for any reason your child's books need changing due to other reasons (e.g absence or no diary on that day), send us a note or email and we'll make sure they are done by the end of the week for you yes


Thank you smiley

*** We currently have lots of unlabelled jumpers and cardigans in our classroom. Please let us know if you have lost one along with size and description and we will send it your way! Thank you ***

Mrs Smith's cottage chutney making!

After our visit to Mrs Smith's cottage, we were inspired to make our own 'olden days' chutney! 

The children loved their visit and this activity - and they all got to take some home to taste too!

Here are the ingredients: apples, onions, cherries, sultanas, brown sugar, white wine vinegar, mixed spices and salt (no mustard was added in the the end).

AUTUMN TREES - Cutting and sticking skills


Maths - greater than and less than crocodiles!
