Year 1 - Butterflies

Welcome to Year 1

2018 - 2019


        The staff who work in Year 1 B class are:

                           Mrs Groucutt                          

 Mrs Eaton


    We have 28 children in Year 1 B.






Your child will come home with a card folder in their book bag. Every day there will be a sheet with the words and sentences they have learnt in phonics. Please support them to read and spell all the words at home.


If you need any help, please come and ask.


Please make sure your child has a P.E kit in school and that any jewellery is removed or covered. 

We will have a lesson with the sports coach every other week.


Reading books

Please read with child as often as possible. They have a reading diary which you need to sign when you have read together. Every time you sign their book, your child will have a sticker to wear, a sticker on their chart and a golden book entry. Your child can change their book every day as long as you have signed their diary. Please also let me know, through the diary, if they have read other books from home or the library.







As part of our Science, we have organised for the children to see chicks hatching and growing over a two week period.

The eggs arrived on Monday 11th March and were put into an incubator.

On Tuesday 12th March the first eggs hatched and we all got to watch! We set up the visualiser next to the incubator so that everyone could watch the magical moment.

Changes around us.

Throughout the year, we will be looking around the environment at school and observing the changes that take place.

In September the trees around school are green and have lots of leaves on them.

In November the leaves have changed colour and are falling off the trees.

Some of the trees have stayed green - they are evergreen trees.

Maths - Part whole model

The children have worked really hard in maths and have learnt how to use the part whole model.


On Monday 12th November, Year 1 went to St Mark's church and to the memorial.

We looked around the church and saw all the displays for Remembrance day.

We took the school wreath and laid it at the memorial.

Everyone in school has decorated a poppy for a special display in the hall.

We decided to collage our poppies.



To introduce the characters from our book this term, we invited the animal lady in.

The children were able to learn about the animals and touch them.
