Useful Information

  • PE lessons are on Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings. However, the children should keep their PE kits in school at all times in case of any changes.
  • Year 1 Forest School sessions are on a Tuesday afternoon. Please could the children have their Forest School kits in school at all times? If you would like to take these home for a wash, then the children will be allowed to take them home after school on a Tuesday but must remember to bring these back into school. Wellies are definitely needed, especially at this time of the year.
  • There will be no Forest School or after-school clubs held on the first and last week of school.



The children will have homework set for them on Education City on a Monday and this will remain active until the Friday of that week. Log in details for both Education City and Reading Eggs will be stuck in the first page of reading logs once the children have been given these with their books. The school office also have a copy of the children's log in details.

Spellings for the children have been given out and there will be a test at the end of each term.

No homework is given out (including books) on the first and last week of each term.

Autumn Term

Our theme for the Autumn term is...

Celebrations - Should celebration always make you happy?

We will be learning about the different celebrations throughout the year and whether or not these are always happy celebrations.

Our learning is based around 'All About Me' and what makes the children special. In our exciting writing lessons, the children will be learning about themselves and each other. In science, we will be looking at the basic parts of the human body and the 5 senses; touch, taste, smell, sound and sight. Baston Surgery is now open for business in our classroom and the children have been very busy making each other better! Our maths this term will be based upon counting, addition and subtraction.


Spring Term

Our topic for the Spring term is...

Weather Adventurers

We will be focusing upon the weather is most of our subjects and how the climate is different in different places around the world.

In Exciting Writing, the children will be writing weather reports which they will go on to record with different pieces of technology. After the closing of our surgery, Baston Broadcasting Corporation has opened in its place and the children have already been hard at work making sure the world is aware of current affairs. Different materials will be explored in our science lessons and we will be having a go at building weather-prrof dens during some of our Forest School sessions. In maths this term, we will be focussing upon 2D and 3D shapes, measurements and we will begin to look at multiplication towards the end of the term.
