Class 1 News

Tuesday 13th November 

It was a lovely sunny morning for our Forest School adventures. The children spent a lot of time exploring the Forest School area, bug hunting, bird watching and shelter building. The highlight of the morning for most of the children was learning  how to use a  hand drill.

This afternoon, class 1 took part in some activities for Remembrance Day. Please click here (or go to Class 2's page) to see the write up.

Friday 5th October

Yesterday was National Poetry Day.  We celebrated in Class 1 by exploring the poem 'Pants' by Giles Andreae and Nick Sharratt.  We found the video really entertaining and then thought about which adjectives we could use to make our own funny poem.  Year 1 made mind maps of different adjectives, while reception designed their own pants and described them.  We wrote our own class poem, inspired by 'Pants' and then shared it in assembly today.  We were pleased that other people were entertained by our poem too.

Class 1's Poem:


Sparkly pants,

Space pants,

Frillly bunny pants,

Princess pants,

Shape pants,

Money patterned funnier pants,

Clippy pants,

Robot pants,

Disco pants,

Light up pants and starry pants.


Here is a link to the original poem:

Lenny Henry Reads 'Pants'

Friday 14th September

Today, Class 1 visited our school library to explore the books there.  All of the children enjoyed browsing through the wide selection of books that we have and found texts that interested them.  We know how important reading can be in supporting different areas of learning, so it is great that the children are developing their love of books.  

"I like the words in my book," Zac.

"Curl up in your favourite chair," Libby.


All children in Class 1 have a reading book and reading record to take home; it is important that they read as often as possible at home with an adult - ideally every day.  When you read at home with your child, please log it in their reading record.  Both their reading book and reading record should be in school every day.  Together, we look forwards to supporting Class 1 to explore and develop their love of reading.
