Year 1

Welcome to Year One, Class of 2018!!!


Welcome to the Year 1 class page. 

 Here is some information we hope you will find useful.

This page will give you an insight into the learning that we are doing in class. 


Miss J Robinson is your class teacher. Each morning Mrs H Clark works alongside the children in class. 


Please remember that our door is always open. If parents or carers wish to speak to a class teacher then they can contact Miss Robinson via the school office, or at the end of the school day. 




 PE: Please have PE kits in school readily available for the whole week. This should include indoor and outdoor kit, as well as trainers. PE days are Monday and Friday - we will send PE kits home on a Friday to be washed if necessary. 

Reading books:

Your child will read to either Miss Robinson or Mrs Clark once a week, where they will change reading books as necessary.


We hope this information is helpful to you and if you have any questions or comments, please get in touch with us.

Today we carried out an experiment!

Today be began to look at different materials.

We started by naming and sorting materials into the following groups…


Metal   Textiles   Plastic   Wood   Glass   Stone


Then we went outside to see which different materials we could find around the school! Take a look at the pictures from our materials hunt!

We have been learning about WW1 and making poppies to remember the brave soldiers...

We have been looking for signs of autumn on our autumn walk...

What a fantastic day we had on our trip to Tycross Zoo! We were lucky enough to see lots of amazing animals including snow leopards, kangaroos, elephants, giraffes, meerkats and penguins only to name a few! One of the highlights from the day was exploring the new chimpanzee habitat ‘Eden’ which is new to the zoo for 2018 - this exciting new home is a beautiful place of residence for a group of chimpanzees. Whilst here we listened to one of the zoo keeper’s giving a talk and found out the names of two of the chimpanzees which were Coco and Jambo! Shortly after this we visited the Discovery Centre which is an under-cover classroom to learn a little more about animals and their senses. We had great fun and even got to meet and stroke Colin the Cockroach and Monty the chinchilla!


A lovely day had by all and the children in Year 1 were a credit to St Margaret’s.

This week we observed changes across the four seasons by going on and autumn walk. We had great fun searching for signs of autumn and recording what we found! Some of things we observed were...

Brown, orange and yellow leaves

Conkers and conker husks





Next week we will be thinking about the changes in trees across the seasons!!!
