We will, as our pupils are growing and learning with us, care for, support and safeguard them whilst striving to encourage them to be responsible citizens and do the same for each other and their wider community.
We will strive to ignite our pupils’ desire and enthusiasm to learn without limits.
We will aim to encourage our pupils and school community to develop academically and socially which will develop their desire to explore the wider world, skilled and equipped to find out even more.
We will foster belief through believing in yourself, taking on challenges and digging deep within yourself to conquer fears.

During the summer term in school we would have been learning about the Victorians. One significant Victorian is Florence Nightingale. Enjoy listening to this story about her and learning about why she is so important and how the things that she did still benefit us today.
The Department for Education have funded 12 weeks of Letters and Sounds videos suitable for use at home with Reception and Year One children which can be accessed here.
Please use the explanation of the lessons, which can be found at the bottom of the page, to select the correct video for your child.

Here is a link to some online safety resources for you to use whilst at home. There are simple 15 minute activities for different ages, which will be refreshed every fortnight.
There are lots of fun and interesting things you can do on the internet. And it can be a great way to stay in touch with friends. But it’s important to understand how to stay safe online.
Sometimes people will try to trick you into clicking dangerous links or sharing things about yourself. Or something you’ve shared might be used to bully or frighten you.

We LOVED science week in year one, enjoy looking at some pictures of our experiments:
1) We tested our reaction time using a reaction tester and whether we could improve it the more we practised.
2) We tested which step would be the quickest step. - Turns out running is the quickest and long lunge is the slowest, so if you're in a hurry the long lunge is not the way to go! :)
Children in year one have been learning the importance of washing their hands well.
We have done two experiments:
1) We tested and watched how germs grow on bread.
2) We watched how germs will stick to our fingers if we don't wash our hands with soap.
Look at the pictures to see our results - we have all made sure we are washing our hands properly since!
Year one had the pleasure of meeting some new friends today, Coco the skunk, Sonny the meerkat (he caused the most excitement), Mrs Boo the owl, Fluffy the tarantula, Thorn the Hedgehog, Cloud the chinchilla, Crobby and Patty the sugar gliders, Ripple the rosy bower, Curly the giant African land snail, Shadow the skink and Slow Coach the tortoise.
All of the children had the chance to hold and stroke a range of animals, some children fed the skunk and wore the handlers glove in order to hold the owl.
All of the children listened really well and got so much from it, the lady from Animal Magic Parties was so knowledgable and shared lots of interesting facts with us. Did you know that if a spider loses a leg, it has the ability to grow another one? Also if you pull on a blue tongued skink's tail, it detaches itself and runs away.
Thank you for your donations to make this possible for all of the children!
Year one have been very lucky this week, we have had a special author and illustrator in school, Katie Weaver. The children had the chance to meet and talk to Katie about her new book Christmas Elfabet. We learnt about the planning stage right up to when the final book is published. Thank you very much Katie for spending your time with us, you inspired a lot of our us and we had a lovely time!

The six ways to be smart showcase was fabulous! The children had the opportunity to show off their own work and look at what everyone else had been up to across the school. We all thoroughly enjoyed it! Thank you everyone for putting in all the hard work.
Children in year one have been learning how to programme the bee-bots. They have been navigating them around a map to different destinations, using the vocabulary North, South, East and West. We have learnt a couple of special ways to remember the cardinal directions: Never Eat Shredded Wheat and Naughty Elephants Squirt Water.
