Year One Homework

Our new video for this week is ‘Number Bonds within 10.’ We will be going on to looking at strategies we can use to work out more difficult problems. For example, if we know 3 + 4 =7, we will be able to work out 7 – 4 = 3.  We hope that you are finding the videos on ‘Maths with Parents’ useful.

The spellings for this week are –






Thank you.

Toilet Rolls

An urgent plea for the inside cardboard of toilet rolls (or similar – kitchen rolls etc). If you have any you could bring in within the next couple of days that would be fabulous.

Many thanks

Our School Woods

After the success of the school trip, we are planning another trip down to our school woods. We will be going on either Monday or Tuesday next week. Please could you provide your child with some wellies and waterproof coats. It would also be handy if they could bring in some tracksuit bottoms (or similar) as it will probably be very muddy!

Many thanks


We were very lucky this morning as we had a special visit from the RuggerEds. They came to show us some of the games and activities they do in their sessions. The children had lots of fun and really enjoyed it. Thank you to the the RuggerEds team for coming in.

If you would like more information about the sessions they run, then visit their website –



We won the golden broom!

Well done to our fantastic class, we won the golden broom for having such a tidy cloakroom! We are so proud of them as we were quite messy after the trip to the woods and the children tried so hard to tidy our cloakroom up! Well done.

Year 1 Maths Homework

The video this week is ‘Number Bonds to 10.’

Also, whilst you are reading any book at home, we are asking you to spot different questions? What words do they begin with? E.g What…How…Why..

Thank you.

Today’s trip to Ecclesall Woods

We certainly did launch our new topic of to a good start today –  ‘What lies in the deep, dark woods?’  We visited the woods and took part in a great workshop based on the story ‘We are going on a bear hunt.’ The children listened carefully to the story and then went on their very own  bear hunt through the woods. After a very muddy journey, we found the bear in a cave and named her Katie! We then talked about the different animals in the woods and what they need to survive. We counted some worms and made some dens for the different animals.

We would just like to say how amazing the children were today, not only did they walk all the way to the woods, they also got very wet. They were so sensible and they just got on happily with the activities so well. We were so proud of them! We would also like to thank our parents who helped, we didn’t have the best conditions!  You were really great and helped lots with the children. We hope the wellies and waterproofs haven’t come back too muddy, thank you again for your support and cooperation. Here are a few pictures of the day, I’m sure the children are tired tonight!
