Please make sure that you sign and return your child's reading book. For further information, please see the 'Little Wandle' guidance at the start of our class page.



Homework will be set each Thursday via our ClassDojo. This will include spellings, new vocabulary and a practical Maths activity/game.

Spellings will be tested every Wednesday in school.



During the Summer Term, our PE days will be Wednesdays and Fridays. Please don't forget to come to school wearing your PE kits on those days!

Year 1 Multi-skills Sporting Event

We really enjoyed taking part in a special fun afternoon of sports with other Year 1 classes at Altrincham Leisure Centre. We tried different activities and had lots of fun!

Designing and Making Fresh Fruit Salads

We tasted different types of fruits before designing our own fruit salads. We learnt how to cut carefully using the 'bridge', 'claw' and 'fork secure' methods. We had to think about taste, texture and colour. As you can see - they were delicious and we really enjoyed eating them!
