Important information about 1G

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 and complete some homework and it is recorded in their log.


15 merits = Bronze

20 merits = Silver

25 merits = Gold


At the end of the half term the children's merits will be converted into learning loot to spend in the homework hut. Please support the children with their learning at home. 


Home learning online


 Please let us know if you need new logins or you need any support with these.


Bug Club

This is a website where children can access books that are tailored to the book band that they are  reading within school. It also includes questions to check their understanding and gives rewards too! This can be accessed on tablets as well as laptops. This reading can then be recorded in their diaries to earn more merits. 


Purple Mash

This is another educational website that your child can access. It has games and activities for all areas of the curriculum. 


PE Days

1G will have outdoor PE on a Tuesday and indoor PE on a Wednesday. 

Children can come to school and remain in their PE kits all day on the days they have PE. 

Please ensure that they are wearing correct kit and that long hair is tied back.


They can can wear tracksuit tops and bottoms in the cooler weather. If they have indoor PE, then can wear warmer sports clothing over their shorts and t-shirt, or choose to wear tracksuit bottoms for the day. 


World Book Day 2022


Today we read the story 'The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse' by Charlie Mackesy. We dressed up as a woodland creature or our favourite book character. We all brought our favourite stories from home and read them together.

Next Stop...London!


Today we dressed up as something typically British to celebrate our new topic. We had the Queen, Paddington, footballers, colours of the Union Jack and an astronaut! We looked at a view of London and spotted key landmarks. We found Big Ben, London Eye, Tower Bridge, River Thames, Houses of Parliament, The Shard and The Gerkin. We built our landmarks out of lego and even made a collage of a London bus! Take a look at our photos.
