  • Welcome to Summer 2

    Published 05/06/23, by Katie Sturman

    We have had a great first day back at school. All children have slipped back into their routines and seem ready for the half-term ahead. 

    We started summer 2 with a visit from VIA where we learnt all about how to cross a road safely. We really e enjoyed this and learnt a lot about zebra and pelican crossings and the importance of STOP, LOOK, LISTEN. Check out photos from our session at the bottom of this blog.

  • Learning in Year One

    Published 09/05/23, by Katie Sturman

    Thank you to everyone who came to our class assembly on Friday 28th April. We had lots of fun putting together our video, and we hope you enjoyed it.

    Year 1 are working really hard in school at the moment and are developing into fantastic and confident little learners! 

    We have had a great time celebrating the King's Coronation last week and have engaged in lots of practical maths activities. 

    Our science and geography lessons are helping us take notice of the seasons and weather, and we are keeping an eye on our weather station. The rain gauge has filled up quite a lot over the weekend thanks to the wet weather!

    In art this week, we will be looking at different painting techniques (marbling and Brusho) and eventually applying these techniques when painting seasonal landscapes. 

    Phonics Screening Check
    The Phonics Screening Check (PSC) will be taking place shortly after we get back from May half-term. To help your child prepare for this I have sent home some activities to complete at home. The PSC only assesses accuracy and not speed - so your child does not need to read these words speedily and can follow the 'special friend, Fred talk, read the word' routine. 

    If you have any questions about this upcoming test, let me know and I will help where I can. 


    Phonics books this week
    Due to the Year 6 SATs taking place this week, we will not be splitting off into our normal phonics groups. I will send home books which your child has already read. This will give them a chance to practise their fluency and storyteller voices.

  • World Book Day 2023

    Published 03/03/23, by Katie Sturman

    We had the most amazing time celebrating World Book Day yesterday. The children's costumes were amazing.

    Our focus of the day was poetry, and we kicked off the day by writing a whole school collaborative poem about our school. We then explored 4 different poems and completed some great activities to do with these poems. '

    Here are just a handful of the poems we looked at:

    The Jabberwocky - Lewis Carroll 
    Magical Box - Kit Wright
    Eye Spy With My Rainbow Eye
    Daffodil - William Wordsworth
    Thoughts Like An Ocean

    Take a look at the photos of our wonderful day

    Welcome back Keller Class, I hope you had a great break. Everyone has come back very settled and fell straight into a normal routine well done!

    Our next topic in Year 1 is The Great Fire of London. We will find out what happened in 1666, how it happened and what changed following this disaster.

    In this topic we will:

    • Order the key events of the Great Fire in chronological order
    • Investigate why and how the fire began
    • Learn about Samuel Peyps and why he is important
    • Discover what changed after the Great Fire
    • Explore ways we can learn about the past.

    Are you ready to find out why London started burning?

    In science we are learning how to identify and classify animals into groups. Here is a good song to listen to at home to help remember these groups :

    Driver subject: History

    Chronological order, events beyond living memory, Samuel Peyps

  • Our capital city is...LONDON!

    Published 31/01/23, by Katie Sturman

    Didn't we tell you?! We went on a trip to London last week to take a look at the human features and famous landmarks. (Don't worry, we didn't really go! We used our imagination to turn KPNS into St Pancras train station and got the underground from Keller Class to the hall).
