Welcome to 1SB!

Hello, and welcome to our class page. We are really looking forward to an exciting year of learning ahead of us. Please check this page regularly to see what your children have been up to in class and find out more about the topics that we are enjoying each term. Please feel free to come and discuss any queries or concerns with us - our door is always open!


Home learning

All children in the school are rewarded for reading and for learning at home. They will receive a merit every time they read, complete some homework, go to clubs after school or out of school and it is recorded in their log. There are ideas in our learning leaflets on things you can do with your child at home to support their learning . Just make a note in their Home Learning/Reading Record logbook so we can reward all their hard work.


15 merits = Bronze

20 merits = Silver

25 merits = Gold


We are aiming to achieve a full house with certificates EVERY TERM this year, we can do it but only with your support at home smiley

On Monday we found two strange eggs with a note saying 'Please look after these eggs'. We made a nest to keep the eggs safe and decided to say kind words to them so whatever was inside felt safe and happy. It worked because on Tuesday the eggs hatched! Guess what was inside - 2 baby dinosaurs! We have decided to find out about dinosaurs this half term and our new topic will be called 'Roar!
