Year 1’s Staying Safe

Here is Year 1’s Staying Safe video. I have to say I love your dance moves and I am very proud of how grown up you’re all being by looking after yourselves and families.

We are missing you a lot and hope to see you all soon when it is safe.

Stay home, stay safe and keep washing your hands.

God Bless

Year 4 Staying Safe During Lockdown.

Here is year 4’s fantastic video whilst staying safe in lockdown.

We absolutely love this video Year 4. We are so proud of you for staying safe and you have really made us smile.

Earth Day

We have had a great few days in school. We have been painting, drawing and thinking about how we can look after our planet.

We hope you’re all staying safe and well. Please take some time to look around you and be thankful for all the things God has given us. It really is a blessing.

Industrial Museum

Before the holidays year 1 went on their school trip to the Industrial Museum in Bradford. We went to learn more about the transport in Bradford and how it has changed over time.
We had a fantastic time and we were able to draw maps, look at different modes of transport and also draw pictures.

Train Visitor

Before the holidays we had a fantastic visit from CRL railway team. Miss Bennett came to our class to teach us how to stay safe on and around trains and train tracks.
We had a fantastic afternoon and really enjoyed dressing up in lots of costumes.

Today we were visited by Mrs Garside from Shibden Hall. She came to help us learn more about toys from the past. We had a fantastic time learning and playing with the toys. We also got the chance to draw our favourite. We have had a fantastic day!

Autumn 2

Firstly a big welcome back! We had a great start to the new school year last half term and hope to have a fantastic time on the run up to Christmas.

This half term we will be :
English : writing a finding story based on the book, Lost in the toy museum and looking at letters linked to the Jolly Christmas Postman.

Phonics – phase 4 letters and sounds. This is all about consolidating phase 3 and beginning to write cvcc and ccvc words aswell as beginning to write longer sentences and write more words correctly.


Maths : addition, subtraction and place value up to 20.
We will be learning number facts and creating fact families using addition, subtracting by crossing out and learning about numbers with tens and ones.


Topic : history of toys.
We will be looking at and comparing toys from the past and present, looking at Victorian toys and recognising how toys have changed over time.
We have a special visitor on Tuesday 12th November linked to our topic.

Science : materials
We will be identifying different types of materials and their properties, be able to tell the difference between an object and the material it is made from, sort objects by their properties and test materials to create a waterproof coat for a teddy.

RE : What does Christmas mean to Christians?
We will be thinking about the importance of Jesus at Christmas and how important he is. We will be looking for signs of Jesus on the run up to Christmas especially in church.


Art: printing using different objects.
We plan on using different objects to print with to create artwork. Our new skills will come in handy when making our Christmas cards.

PE: gymnastics – on a Tuesday.
We will be learning how to move apparatus carefully, move in different ways, creating different shapes with our bodies and friends and linking two actions together to make a sequence.

ICT and Music will be taught on a Wednesday afternoon.

We are looking forward to having lots of fun in the run up to Christmas and to continue our learning journey together.

In year one we celebrate reading at home with a raffle.
Each time your child reads at home and has their reading record signed they receive a raffle ticket.

At the end of the week 3 children are picked and have the chance to go in the star box. All tickets remain in the jar and at the end of the half term 1 ticket is chosen to win a book.

We are very excited to find out who our first winners will be.

Here are some helpful tips to support reading at home:
Let your child select the book. (it doesn’t always have to be their reading book
Discuss the cover, the author/ illustrator.
Look through the book together and talk about the pictures
Take turns to read.
