welcome to year 1!
WELCOME TO YEAR 1!
Hello Hawks and Harriers!
This year, the Hawks class teacher is Miss Oakley and the Harriers class teacher is Miss Jarvis. The other adults in year one are Miss Beal, Miss Stokes, Miss Davies, Miss Kenmire and Mrs Osborne.
On Tuesdays, there will be guest teachers in our classes for half of the day.
PE this term is on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has a sun hat to wear for PE when needed.
We are thrilled with the progress the year ones have made so far this year and can't wait to see how they grow and change in the summer.
The teachers have been planning some exciting lessons for our final year one topic: 'An Island Home'.

Old Sarum Castle Trip
We had a brilliant time at the Castle this week and apparently it was the "best day at school ever!".
The year one teachers were beaming with pride throughout the day because the children were absolutely brilliant! They were asking interesting and curious questions throughout the day. They were polite and respectful towards the English Heritage team and our wonderful parent helpers. They were careful and gentle with the historical ruins... and most importantly they took good care of each other while we were out and about. We walked more than 17 000 steps on our trip so everyone needed lots of kindness and encouragement on the way!
Here are some of our favourite quotes from the trip, please do let us know if your child has said anything else funny/interesting:
"I liked rolling down the hills"
"My favourite thing was seeing all the different parts of the castle"
"I liked seeing the bluebells and forget-me-nots on the walk back to school"
"We had to be careful because of the wind"
"It was interesting seeing where the Cathedral used to be"
"We saw some views and I liked that"
"It was fun making echoes in the well"
"I liked the Egg Dance game the best"
We will be uploading photos over the Easter holidays but please bear with us as we check which children have media permissions - if you're not sure what we mean ask your children why we need to be extra careful when uploading things to the internet they have had some great ideas this year!
Wow! What fabulous imaginations we have in year one! We have been adapting the Jack and the Beanstalk story this week and the children have come up with some wonderful suggestions:
