Year 1 Birch

Our P.E days are Wednesday and Friday. Don't forget to bring your P.E. kit!

We visit the Library on a Wednesday. Please remember to bring your library book so you can get yourself a new one to read at home!

Welcome back! We hope you had a restful break and are ready for the new half term ahead of us!

Our topic for Spring 2 is In the Deep Dark Woods. Our story is one of Mrs Rutter's favourites...The Gruffalo! 

Since returning in January, Birch class have saved the school from an Evil Pea, seen Neil Armstrong land on the moon and had a visit from a real-life hero! The half term started with a shock! We found that some vegetables had been trapped in a shopping basket by an Evil Pea. Over a few weeks, we learned how to use question marks, exclamation marks and adjectives to create wanted posters to help catch the esca-Pea! In our Creative areas, we made our own Supertato (the hero of our story) using real potatoes! We were really impressed with how they looked when we finished. Take a look at our photos to see what we have been up to...

These are our Year 1 Common Exception Words. Children need to be able to fluently read and spell all these words by the end of the year.

Birch class are making really good progress towards being able to spell these words, every child improved on their score from last half terms spelling test!
