1WF - Mrs Ward / Fawcett

Welcome to Class 1WF


Thank you for taking the time to look at our class page on our new school website.



At our school we place a great importance on Reading and we would ask you to encourage your child to read their school reading book everyday and record this with a signature and a message if possible. Obviously reading stories to your child is still valuable and enjoyable for both children and parents.

Please return your child’s reading book to school everyday so that we can change the book if it has been read and also so that we can record if the child has read at school.



We visit the school library every Thursday afternoon. During this time, if a child wishes to change their library book they can do so.



We have PE lessons on a Tuesday morning and a Thursday afternoon. Please bring your child’s PE kit (white t-shirt, navy blue/black shorts and trainers/pumps) to school on a Monday and leave in school until Friday. We try to go outside for some PE lessons so please also send some jogging bottoms too.

We also do daily physical activity in the form of a Daily Mile or an indoor exercise (e.g. BBC Supermovers) to get our bodies moving as much as possible.


Drinks and Snacks

We ask the children to drink water at regular intervals during the day so please provide them with a durable water bottle (water only, not juice). A fruit or vegetable snack is provided everyday for the children which they eat at morning playtime. You can send your child with their own piece of fruit or vegetable if you so wish but no other snacks are suitable, thank you.


And lastly, thank you for your support and if you have any questions or would like a chat, please catch a member of staff at the beginning or end of the day.


Thank you,

Mrs Ward, Mrs Fawcett & Mrs Endicott

Bar Models in Maths

We've been adding and taking away in Maths this week and have practised forming number sentences and using bar models to help us work out the answers. Ask your child to show you what we've been doing.


We practised crossing the road safely with the Street Feet resource. We practised the 4 steps: Stop. Look. Listen. Think. Can you practise at home?

Following Instructions

This week we have been following instructions to make a knight, a paper plate fish and a friendship bracelet. Some excellent independent learning again!


Gymnastics - Flight

We enjoyed starting our gymnastics unit on Flight. The children didn't believe they could fly! However, I was very proud of the children using 'squashy' ankles, knees and hips to get high in the air.


Some independent learning

We are having such a busy time already! The children have settled in very quickly and are already picking up new routines and responsibilities.


In Maths, the children have been resisting their counting skills and identifying and writing numbers up to 100. The children have been working out what a number is worth and how that number can be partitioned. The children have been given the opportunity to independently solve maths problems and share their findings with the rest of the class.


In English, the children have been writing about what they have been doing in the holidays. It has been great to hear all the wonderful things and exciting times that the children have had. The children have all enjoyed being given their new reading books and be listened to by the different teachers in year one using all of our different reading areas that have been set up I the holidays.


The children have enjoyed working in the construction areas and starting to work with the castle resources that we have prepared ready for our first topic.
