This week in Science, Class 1 were looking at wild and garden plants! We spoke about what these mean and where we might find these plants. We then went on a plant hunt around the playground and in the peace garden and found lots of different plants growing around our school.
Class 1 have been working hard with their phonics over the last few weeks. At the end of our Computing lesson, children practiced their knowledge of ‘real’ and ‘alien’ words using the website Phonics Bloom, you all did an excellent job, well done!
The Phonics Screening Check for all pupils in Class 1 will take place over two weeks. The dates will be from 6th – 17th June, which are the first two weeks back after May half term. Not all children will complete the test on the same day and it will be administered 1 to 1 with the class teacher in a separate room. Please click the image below for more information, this sheet will also be handed out on Monday.
Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions about this.
This half term, Class 1 have started looking at plants in Science. This week, we thought about the different important parts of a plant and the different functions they have. We have also been looking at the names of lots of common plans and flowers.
Class 1 had a brilliant trip to the Charles Dickens Museum today! They learnt about the life of Charles Dickens and his family, got to look at interesting artefacts from the Victorian period and even got to try on pieces of clothing! This trip really helped with our history unit on The Victorians and we tried to capture as much as possible.
In computing this week, Class 1 made some posters about staying safe online. We spoke about information we should never give out online and making sure we tell an adult if something doesn’t seem right online. Class 1 have had a great week this week and we are looking forward to our trip to the Charles Dickens Museum today!
Although it’s been a short week back, Class 1 have done some excellent writing practice over the last couple of days. Children wrote some lovely recounts of their Easter holiday and worked in pairs discussing ways to improve their writing. Keep up the great work Class 1.
Welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely Easter break and are ready for the summer term.
Here are a few notices for parents and carers:
PE will now be on Wednesday afternoons, please bring PE kits in at the start of the week

Please try to arrive at school by 8.45 each morning to ensure your child walks in with the rest of the class and can complete their early morning work (especially with the phonics screening check coming up).
Children will be taking home weekly phonics homework in preparation for the phonics test in June. Please complete these sheets at home with your child, they do not need to be returned to school.
