We are learning about bonfire night and Remembrance Day in year 1. This afternoon, we talked about the different colours, patterns and words we think about when thinking of both events. Miss Bullivant put on some of her favourite jazz music and we had time to paint and create. We then shared our artwork with…1B

Hello and welcome to Key Stage One
This year your children will be in one of three home classes; Y1B, Y1/2K or Y2RF
Your children will be registered in their home classes in a morning.
School begins at 8.50am (Doors open at 8.45) and finishes at 3.00pm. Please ensure children are collected at 3.00pm by an adult. If it is an adult not known to the class teacher, please let them know in advance.
Our morning routine is as follows:
- Fifteen minutes to nine, doors open.
- Pupils hang coat etc on peg, put book bag in their drawer.
- Lunch bag, if children have brought one, to be placed on a table in the classroom.
- All children will have a book to take home to read with an adult. Children can change this whenever they have read at home. Please send their reading record in to school every day. You can write a comment or sign when you have read at home.
- Children to sit on the carpet or at their table for the morning activity (this will be clear on the day).
After registration, we will have registration or phonics. Some days children have PE too. Children will complete their literacy and maths lessons in their own classrooms.
In the afternoon, children will be registered in their home classes and will stay in those classes for topic subjects.
On Wednesdays, children in both years will have music with Mr Howlett-Right who is a specialised music teacher from the Wickersley Partnership Trust.
Please make sure your child’s PE kit is in school all week. Children have PE with a teacher from WPT on Wednesdays. Your child will have a second PE lesson with their class teacher on another day of the week.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be expected back into school by Wednesday so that teachers are able to look through it.
Our topic for this term, is ‘From Field to Fork.’ Within this topic, children will be finding out about animals on the farm, plants and how things grow.
Please ensure your child has a water bottle to keep in the classroom. This can be taken home everyday and filled with fresh water.
We have lots of exciting things planned and look forward to the year ahead.

In year 1, we have been learning about poppies and why we wear them. Miss Bullivant told us a story about a soldier who was in the war 100 years ago. We then drew around our friend and drew over 100 poppies to remember all of the fallen soldiers. Miss Bullivant was very touched by…1B
Y1B loved the ‘spooky disco’ that was hosted by Mrs Wildgoose and the Friends of Brinsworth Whitehill. Miss Bullivant felt very scared by all the costumes!Posted By: 1B
To conclude our learning about life on the farm, KS1 took part in a farm day. This included apple tasting, a barn dance and drawing flowers. We had a great day!Posted By: 1B
This week in year one, we are immersed in a spooky environment. We have been reading Funny Bones, making skeleton number bond hands, creating witches made from 2D shapes, and we will be making pumpkin soup later in the week. Miss Bullivant is hoping to cast a learning spell on the children!Posted By: 1B 2018/2019

Today, Key Stage One went to become farmers at Cannon Hall Farm. Even though the weather was rainy, we saw a cow being milked, a sheep race and even some new born piglets. The children behaved impeccably and made the teachers at Brinsworth very proud. Well done KS1. Photos of our farm fun to follow…1/2KR 1B 2RF
