Class 1 Squirrel

Welcome to Class 1 Squirrel!

Hello everyone! We would like to say a big welcome (or welcome back) to all of you. For our new starters, this is the beginning of your exciting journey through our school and we hope it will be a fun one! We're so pleased to see all of you and we're so happy to be back together. 


Days to remember


Our PE session with Mrs Taylor is on a Wednesday. Please can you send your child to school wearing their PE kit on a Wednesday. We will also have another PE session on a Monday, but children will not be required to change for this. Forest School is on a Friday afternoon - please can you ensure that your child has a warm coat and wellies in school. 


Reading at home


Reception children take one reading book home every Monday. Please record in the planners when your child has read at home. We will then look at this on a Monday, when the children will have a chance to colour in a square on our reward chart for each time they have read. We also ask that you use Bug Club to supplement their reading. 

Autumn 1


We've had a very busy half term, settling in and getting to know each other. The children have made a brilliant start to the year!

We have been learning all about the changes that take place in Autumn. The children have loved using conkers in their maths, building 'marble runs' for conkers, and making conker toadstools and conker caterpillars in Forest School!

We have been learning about local artist Barbara Hepworth. The children had a go at making their own versions of her famous sculpture, 'The Family of Man'. 

Autumn 2


This half term we had lots of fun reading stories themed around Space, including Beegu and Whatever Next! We did all sorts of writing, including letters to Beegu, our own Whatever Next stories and instructions to make a balloon rocket. 

We were all very excited getting ready for Christmas. We made brilliant shepherds as part of the Nativity scene by the church and we made our own cards for the residents of St John's House. We also made beautiful pinecone decorations to hang on the pallet trees at the bottom of the drive. 

Spring 1 2021


We will be reading some traditional tales, including The Gingerbread Man and the Three Little Pigs. These stories will form the basis of our learning for this half term. Look out for exciting activities, including some baking!
