Class News 7.5.24

Key Stage One have had a wonderful first week back with lots of wonderful work and a terrific trip to Raby Castle.

In English, 1HL and 1TS have been researching all about castles, ready for our visit. In 1MG, we have been looking at using apostrophes for possession and contractions as well as starting to plan a recount of our trip.

In Maths, 1TS and 1HL have been learning about fractions, focusing on quarters this week. In 1MG, we have been looking at statistics, using tally charts and graphs to read data.

Our Topic

This term, our topic is called ‘A Knight’s Tale’ and is all about castles and their importance in History. Take a look at some of the wonderful work we’ll be doing.


As we are now in our final half term of school, would like to remind you of our school uniform expectations.

During the Summer months we request that children bring sun hats/caps to school and in the event of a good forecast and high temperatures – could sunscreen be applied before your child comes to school.

Our school uniform is…

Boys Girls
Grey /red V-necked pullover / Sweatshirt Grey / red pullover / Sweatshirt or Cardigan
White shirt White blouse
Grey trousers Grey skirt or red/white pinafore dress
White or grey socks White or grey socks

Black shoes should be worn with school uniform. Alternatively black trainers may be worn.
Hair styles should not be extreme and are considered part of the uniform. No tram lines nor hair dyes.
Earrings do present a problem – only studs can be worn.

The children should come to school in their PE kits on PE Days (white t-shirt, black shorts,
joggers and a sweatshirt, plimsolls or trainers).

Pupil of the Week

Pupil of the week in 1HL is River for his enthusiasm on our trip to Raby Castle.

Pupil of the week in 1TS is Eliza for being a fantastic role model.

Pupil of the week in 1MG is Charlie for his continued effort in maths, even when he finds things tricky.
