Year 1 – Hedgehogs

The Year 1 Hedgehog Class Teacher is Mrs Hall


  Year 1 pupils do PE every Wednesday and Thursday so please ensure your  child's  PE kit is in school at all times including warm clothing for when going outside.


We would like to kindly remind all parents that all children's earrings should be removed ready for PE days unless they are less than 6 weeks old when plasters should be supplied to cover the earrings during PE.


We will be going outside in all weathers, so please make sure that you child comes to school wearing appropriate clothing. As the weather is becoming colder we ask that the children come to school with hats, scarves and gloves; wellies are brilliant for outdoor learning as we might get a little muddy! 


Southwell Minster


We had a lot of fun on our trip to Southwell Minster. We took part in our very own wedding and christening. We herd stories from the bible and also learnt all about the men who built the minster and how they designed it. Thank you to all the parents who supported us with this trip.

Exciting Maths



We have been investigating measure in Maths this week and today we have used our 30cm ruler to measure our partners. We had lots of fun measuring their hair, arms and hands. The children were very careful not to forget that we were measuring using cm, no elephants in sight.

In Maths we have been looking at length and using this to secure our learning of halves - we used cubes to make Mummy worms and then split our cubes equally to find her baby half her length.

In science we have been looking at materials. We investigated materials which floated or sank and then design a boat. After this we made our boats out of the materials we investigated and tested them.

Fabulous Math.


We had a challenge today to choose our own learning activity. Green was a challenge, orange was more challenging and red was super star material. We had to decide which activity we wanted to try.

Football practice.

Fantastic football practice last week, I hope we are all excited and ready for our penalty shoot outs on Wednesday 15th March.

Our First Library Visit


We had a lovely time for our first visit to the library. We explored and shared lots of different books and then chose our favourites to take back to school and share in class. I hope you're all excited for book day tomorrow.

This morning Dash one of Santa's helper elves introduced himself to the hedgehog class. He told us that it was him who had made us our magical Santa's grotto and he would be back each day to see if he can spot children doing wonderful learning and being kind for Santa's nice list...

Spelling practice
We had great fun this week learning about the Masai tribe and their homes. We tried to replicate their houses using salt dough and hay.
We had a great time for children in need and we are very proud of all of our teams for raising a large amount of money for a great cause. Thank you to all of the adults who helped us get there. Didn't the children look fab in all of their spots ☺
