This week in year one we have been very busy getting ready for Christmas. We have been writing letters to Santa and making mini Christmas trees. We are very excited about Christmas craft day tomorrow!

Please ensure your child brings a carrier bag to school to put all of their amazing creations in to take home tomorrow. 



Christingle Service 2017

Thank you to all the parents and carers for attending our Christingle service on Friday. The children had worked really hard practising our songs and enjoyed performing to the parents. In class we enjoyed making our own Christingles and learnt about the tradition and the meaning behind each part of the Christingle.

Perform a Picture

The children had worked hard in their art sessions to create a group picture using inspiration from other artists. As a class we then created a body percussion piece to represent our picture, named tornado. We then performed this in assembly for the rest of the school .

Autumn 2

What a fantastic start to autumn 2! Keep reading to find out more about our wonderful learning in Drake class!

WB 6th November 


We have been  learning all about writing information texts about bearded dragons. The children have enjoyed learning lots of interesting facts about bearded dragons and how to look after them! We then used these amazing facts in our writing using our year 1 non-negotiables of capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.



This week we have been focusing on writing number names to 10 and finding missing numbers on number lines. Next week I will be checking that the children remember how to spell their number names. We are also learning how to count in 2's  I was very impressed with how well the children could do this independently without my help! 



This week we have been learning all about Christopher Columbus and his discovery of South America!


Homework - This week your child should have brought home a tricky word mat. Ensure you practice reading and writing these words as much as possible to aid their reading and writing of these words in school.


Check back here next week to find out all about what we have learnt next week!

What a fantastic start to the new term in Drake class. The children have really enjoyed learning our rules and routines and are now understanding more about what exciting things we have planned for this year.

We operate an open door policy at Sharp Lane so if you have any questions or queries about how we can work together to best support your child, please do catch me on the door or make an appointment to see after school.  

In phonics we have been revising the phase 3 sounds. This week we have been focusing on the sounds oo, oi, ow, or and ur. See if your child can spot these sounds in their reading books. 

Which 6R Animal are you most like? Ask your child how they can get a certificate for showing these qualities
