Class News


Welcome to the class page for Reception & Year 1. As we start the new school year we are focusing on settling our new class in, ensuring good friendships develop and an understanding of school routines.  

We are learning about materials in our topic work and we are enjoying traditional stories in literacy. We have also introduced dough gym and funky finger activities.  These activities will help with our fine motor skills and co-ordination.

We are very excited to be planning our first visit to a farm. More to follow on this shortly!

This page will be updated throughout the year with news and pictures of events and activities in class. In the meantime the galleries below show some of the fun we had last school year!

Water fight - 18th July

Pupils enjoyed cooling off during our very orderly water fight in the Rec!

Scarborough Trip - 10th July

Oh we do love to be beside the seaside - even in the rain!!  We all thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Scarborough to support our seaside topic.  The children behaved beautifully and were a credit to our school.

Fair & Funky chocolate workshop

Prior to half-term Reception & Year 1 class enjoyed a brilliant workshop provided by Fair & Funky. The children learnt all about Fairtrade and chocolate! (Click on the photos below to enlarge).

Science Week fun!

Professor I.M. Clueless wrote to each class during Science Week and asked the children to help analyse lava samples which his robots had collected from different planets!

The pictures below show Reception & Year 1 class carrying out some tests on the lava......

Balance-ability sessions

Reception and Year 1 were fortunate to benefit from free 'Balanceability' sessions which were provided by our local Bikeability provider thanks to grant funding.  The children worked hard during the fun sessions and the balance bikes greatly improved their balance and co-ordination skills, even if they were already able to ride a bike with pedals.
