Year 1

I can see many of you have had a go at Times Table Rock Stars and Numbots, well done!

Times Tables and the division symbol are new to Year One so it will be tricky to start.  You may wish to start practically with the one and/or two times table,
e.g. 1 x 1 = 1, use the term one group of one equals one.  2 x 2 = 4, two groups of two equals four. 
2÷2= 1, use two objects and share them into two bowls and so on.

For those of you who haven't had time to explore yet, we also have access to Numbots using the same log in details as Times Table Rock Stars.  You will start using story mode, follow the instructions on the screen, then the the tasks will be set on your child's knowledge and understanding.

It is important to allow your child to answer the questions so that I can track their progress.  I am able to see areas stengths as well as difficulties.


I hope this information is useful smiley


In Science today we discussed what animals had in common. We then drew around some children and labelled the human body.

Hello again and Welcome to Year 1!


It has been a busy few days getting back into the routine of school and adjusting to the changes from Reception to Year 1. 


The children will get their new reading books and reading records next Monday. Mrs Cambridge and I will be busy trying to hear the children read throughout the week.  Please aim to read with your child for at least 10 minutes each day. Their reading books must be in school on a Friday where they will be kept over the weekend and new books handed back on Monday. 


The children are given spellings as part of their home learning.  

The children will also be asked to learn numbers or number bonds to 10.   This is also a short 10 minute activity.


All the home work will be put on here for you to download. I suggest for spellings you get a little note book and write down the spellings to practice in. Make sure you use imaginative ways to learn them. 

Here are some suggestions:

Make up rhymes to help remember

Write a rainbow - Use different colours

Find any patterns you notice

Find words you already know inside them

Use look, say, cover, write, check

Write them out multiple times


PE will now be on a Tuesday and Thursday.  Please remember to send your children to school in the appropriate PE clothing (for example, trousers when it is cold outside).


If you have any questions please email with my name (Miss Webb) as the subject. I will try to get back to asap.



We are looking forward to the year ahead.



We have been reading extracts from the story 'Coming to England' about a girl who lived in Trinidad and Tobago and moved to England with her family. Today we tasted some exotic fruits.
