    This morning the children worked with a partner to create a ‘counting in 3s’ hopscotch.


    The children chose to draw numicon patterns and number lines on the playground to help them.

    Can you continue the number sequence?

  3. Harvest Experience

    October 11, 2017 by misstimmins

    Today we walked to Abington Park Church for our Harvest Experience.

    When we arrived we were put into four groups and took part in a range of different harvest experiences around the church. As the children made their way around the church they collected a range of words.




    The children planted a seed, made a small clay pot and a paper boat linked to the different experiences around the church.

    The children were amazing and a represented the school fanatically. You should all be very proud.

    A big thank you to all of the helpers this afternoon and for the church for arranging the experience for our children.

  4. Queen Elizabeth II Returns

    September 29, 2017 by misstimmins

    Today we had another visit from Queen Elizabeth II.

    The children had lots of questions to ask her.

    We then spent the afternoon completing a family tree, finding out where she lives and looking at her crown in preparation to design our own.


    Can you tell me a fact about Queen Elizabeth II?

  5. Royal Opening

    September 20, 2017 by misstimmins

    The children have had a fantastic day. We started off our morning learning how to bow and curtsy ready for the arrival of Queen Elizabeth II

    Throughout the day the children had the opportunity to do a range of royal activities.

    Making crowns, designing shields, portraits of the queen, drawings of Buckingham Palace and making jam sandwiches.

    In the afternoon the children played some royal sports.

    What was your favourite part of the day?

  6. Rhyme Rockets

    September 20, 2017 by misstimmins

    The children had a great time this afternoon. They all got involved singing, dancing and creating new rhymes.

    We completed some follow up work from the Rhyme Rockets on Tuesday.

    The children were asked to generate a list of rhyming words in small groups. We then used their ideas to create our own class rhyme.

  8. Welcome Back

    September 6, 2016 by misstimmins

    Welcome back!

    We have had a fantastic first two days back at school. The children have been very busy exploring their new classroom and getting to know Miss Shaw.

    We have had a very exciting day today. This morning we discovered a mystery bag in our classroom. Attached to the bag was a message from Dog Skeleton. He needed our help to name, label and match the pictures to the correct body parts. The children worked with their new talk partners to write their label and then present their work back to the class.


    We successfully pieced the body parts back together for Dog Skeleton.


    The children then worked in groups to label the different body parts onto their chosen outline. They did a great job!


    But how did Dog Skeleton get into our school?

    The children have spent their break times looking for clues on the playground. What clues did you find?

  9. Spellings

    March 3, 2016 by misstimmins

    This week we have been looking at spellings ending in -er and -est.

    The children did a great job at recognising which spelling ending was needed in each word.

    Here are some of the spellings we were practising.



    Quickest/ quicker

    hardest/ harder

    Longest/ longer

    (see more spellings on the spelling bee document)

  10. World book day

    March 3, 2016 by misstimmins


    The children in year 1 looked amazing today. Lots of great effort put into their costumes. Well done to mummy’s and daddy’s for your hard work.

    What book characters can you spot in the class?


    The children kick started world book day with a class fashion show. They had great fun walking down the catwalk, posing for a picture and showing off their costumes.
