Message from Mrs Kingston We have noticed increasing levels of playground chat about the game Fortnite— Battle Royale which is a PEGI 12+ gun battle game which requires players to work as a team. The main risks to children are interacting with strangers and also making costly in-app purchases. If your child is talking about Fortnite, please follow this link to find out more about it. https:// fortnite-battle-royal-parents-guide-keepkids-safe-gaming/

Year 1 Maths and English end of year expectations

Term 3 


This term in Y1 we have been focusing on animals in our topic lessons. We have enjoyed doing lots of scientific thinking and have been learning how to group and classify different animals. We have also continued to focus on migrating animals - learning about the animals that migrate our world's oceans and why. We will try to keep this page as up to date as possible, so you can see all the wonderful things that your children get up to!


If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you will find some photos of our learning this term!


Warm wishes,

The Y1 team!

Welcome to Year 1 

With Miss King!



Year 1


Welcome to the Year 1 class page, we will try to update the page as regularly as possible over the year. In year 1, we value the power of kindness. In the words of children’s author Roald Dahl “kindness is the number one attribute in any human being.” We understand that learning comes in all shapes and sizes and as well as academic success – to be successful also means to be kind, generous and respectful towards others. This year we will take on new challenges, pushing our learning to the next level. Our classroom is a safe and exciting world and we are ready to take on new learning and adventures with a new teacher too!


Over the first term we’ll be saying a fond goodbye to the EYFS and hello to KS1! Our topic is ‘Toy-tastic’ and we’ll be learning all there is to know about old and new toys – making sure we get lots of time to play with them too! If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me. Our school value this year is bravery, so we are going to be being brave with our learning this year. Making sure that we participate even when we might find something tricky!


Warm wishes,

Miss King
