Year 1 - Starfish

Welcome to Year 1 - Starfish!



Welcome to the Starfish Class! The Starfish Teacher is Mrs Moody and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Ashworth. Mrs Lewer teaches us on Wednesday mornings.


In Year 1 The Starfish and The Seahorse Classes work closely alongside each other, learning and playing together. Have a look on The Seahorses' Page for information about their staff etc.


Visit this page for termly updates about the different topics the children will be learning about. We will also add photographs of what the children have been up to in class and around school.




Home Readers

Each child has a set reading day but there may be other times when your child is asked to read so could you ensure that they bring their reading book to school every day.

In order for your child to progress with their reading they need to be reading every day.  We recommend short periods of no longer than 10 minutes at a time. Please add a short comment in your child's reading record each time they have read with you.



Our P.E days are Monday and Tuesday each week.

Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on these days with all items clearly labelled. Please remember children must not wear earrings on PE days and long hair should be tied up. 






Spellings will be sent home every Friday, for a test on the following Friday. Please encourage your child to practise these, through them sounding out the word using the sounds we have learnt that week, i.e. sh-i-p, b-oo-t.

Pendleside Hospice Sponsored Bunny Hop - a big thank you to all adults for sponsoring your children. They had lots of fun being bunnies hopping around a special bunny course in the hall!

We were very lucky to have a visit from a birds of prey company! We learned lots of interesting facts about the birds and then got to watch them free flying in the playground.

In Art we are learning the skill of tearing paper to make a paper collage. This was the first time the children have done this and they did brilliantly! They produced lots of fantastic art work!

We all enjoyed our Christmas Lunch. It was delicious!

Pudsey Day 2018. All the children loved having a big bounce on the bouncy castle!

This week in Maths we are learning about capacity. Here we are matching and writing labels to describe the amount of liquid in each container.

The children have had a special visitor in school today - the poet Andy Tooze. Andy worked with Starfish Class and together we learned a poem off by heart and even wrote our own poem about Autumn! The children have had lots of fun and have learned lots!

This week we have enjoyed going on an autumn walk. We kept an eye out for signs of autumn - we saw lots of leaves changing colour, blackberries and berries growing on trees.

Starfish children have been learning about fruit and vegetables in our DT and R.E lessons. Today we got to try some different fruit and vegetables. We then thought of lots of words to describe their taste and texture.

In Literacy we are learning about the Monkey Puzzle story. Today we have enjoyed retelling the story using puppets and jungle boxes.
