Contacting Us:

If you have any questions or information you would like to share, please use the class teacher email address shared with you at the beginning of the year, or phone the school office. At the start and end of the day, members of the Year 1 team will be available to communicate any matters. Please feel free to ask any questions, no matter how big or small, and we will be more than happy to help. 

Key information

  • Reading books will be handed out on a Monday. Please listen to your child read regularly during the week. It is important to read a book more than once in order to become more familiar with the story and confident with decoding the words. 
  • Please return reading books to school each Friday. 
  • Click on the link to see a list of the common exception words that the children should be able to read and write by the end of Year 1. 

Lincolnshire Day

In Year 1, we have been very busy taking part in lots of activities to celebrate our county.

We have looked at the Lincolnshire flag and have learnt all about what each part of the colour represents. 

We have also found Lincolnshire on a Google Earth and have used the construction blocks to rebuild a traditional Lincolnshire farm landscape. We were able to sort the animals into different groups and we used different coloured paper to represent the different kind of crops the farmers grow in their fields. 

Meet Paddington

The children have had an unexpected visit from somebody special! Paddington arrived at Kidgate Primary School!

It all started when we received a letter addressed to Year 1 under our classroom door. We opened it to find lots of different clues leading us to our special friend. We cannot wait to find out all about the different adventures that Paddington has been on.

How are you feeling today?

We have been exploring the different feelings that The Colour Monster felt in the story. We have been experimenting with colour mixing to create some of the colours represented. We also made a collage of The Colour Monster to show how we were feeling.

The Colour Monster

We have been reading and exploring the fantastic book 'The Colour Monster'.  The children have been learning about the different feelings that are represented in the book and, in their art work, have experimented with how to mix colours together to create a range of different shades and tones.  

In our Maths work, we have been practising our counting all the way to 100! Use the 'hundred square splat' link below to practise counting forwards and backwards from different starting numbers. 

Let's Explore!

Our first project in Year 1 is 'Let's Explore'.
