Celebrating Our Success

Well done to Lilly who was awarded 1C's Value certificate for our school Superhero Value of 'Empathy.'
Lilly shows great empathy if a peer is upset or needs help in any way and will offer her support and try to understand how they are feeling.
Well done Lilly, what a wonderful achievement!

Well done Kaiden for being awarded Class Champion for 1C this week.
You have really tried to work independently on your maths work on doubling.

Year 1 are enjoying looking at the work of the Spanish artist Jean Miro.
We have drawn different types of lines and shaded the shapes we made.
We have also tried this on the computer using a paint program.



Children have been working hard and getting creative at home on their autumn based homework.
Look at these lovely examples in 1C.
We can't wait to see what you bring into class.

Year 1 have enjoyed wearing their odd socks to raise awareness of bullying. Odd socks are a symbol for being different and we love being different! We have explored the theme, 'change starts with us' and discussed how a small change can make a big difference.

1C had lots of fun raising money for Children in Need by wearing yellow or spotty clothes.
We also took part in some fun sporting activities to keep fit and healthy. It was great fun!

Reading Suitcase

Well done Abbie for taking home the reading suitcase over the Christmas holidays. You really enjoyed your hot chocolate as mummy read you the story.

Emelia has thoroughly enjoyed having the reading suitcase during the Christmas period and enjoyed cuddling up with the teddy to listen to a fantastic story.

Well done to Dylan for taking home the story suitcase this weekend.
We hope you enjoy reading the story you have chosen.

Year 1 have had a fantastic start to the new academic year and have been exploring animal stories in their English lessons. They have thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘Dear Zoo and ‘Class Two at the Zoo’. 



As part of our Science work, Year 1 have been exploring their senses and discovering which body parts are used for each one. We have been around school on a sensory work to activate our senses and to see what we can see, smell, taste, hear and touch.


Year one have thoroughly enjoyed thinking about being unique and designed their own signatures in the style used by the famous artist Joan Miro.

Year 1 enjoyed painting their name in the style of Jean Miro.

Year one have enjoyed being yellow and spotty to raise money for Children in Need. We have enjoyed taking part a range of sports activities in the hall to get moving and keep fit!

Bird of Prey

 Year 1 had a visit from a bird of prey this afternoon, a Hawk.
We have been learning all about animals and their features and characteristics in our Science lessons this term.
We had the opportunity to put on a long glove to protect our arm and hold the hawk. It was very exciting.

General election

Year 1 had a visit from the Year 5 election candidates this afternoon.
We listened to their speeches and asked them questions about their policies.

During our Maths lessons, they have been looking at the place value of numbers to 20 and have used practical equipment to support their learning as well as lots of pictorial representations. They have had a stunning start to their new topic, ‘Children around the world’ by delving into artwork created be a famous artist called Joan Miro and have analysed his style of art in preparation for creating our own art gallery using his techniques.

1C came to school wearing yellow for Mental Health Awareness day.

We thought that the yellow made us feel happy.


The children in 1U have had a fantastic time at the disco. Thank you for the fantastic costumes. They all looked amazing

During Anti- Bullying week, Year one discussed how to be a 'good friend'.
We talking about using kind words as a way to make and keep friends. We have recorded nice things about each person in year one and shared them. We have connected all the compliments together to create a wonderful 'Friendship Chain'.

Year 1 have had an amazing time in their inspire session and created fantastic surrealist sculptures in the style used by Joan Miro. They have used a range of skills to
make different components of a sculpture and scored pieces to join them together. They have added​ details using tools and explained how Miró’s sculptures were Surreal.
​Thank you to all the parents that came to support the children. We had great fun.

Dudley Zoo

Year one have had an amazing time at the zoo this week and thoroughly enjoyed getting up close to a lots of animals. It was amazing to see their learning in the science unit about animals being consolidated and brought to life.

We also loved out visit to Santa's grotto and the meeting the elves and reindeer.

In R.E, 1C discussed why people say prayers. They then thought about what they would like to say thank you for in their class and wrote a class prayer together.
