Miss Pickering

What a wonderful half term, the children have worked so hard and have enjoyed having a bit of normality. It was lovely to catch up with you all over parents evening, if you do want to chat about anything please feel free to come and see me or call school.

After half term we will be focusing on geography and our topic will be features of a village/town.

We will be comparing Duddon to Chester and hopefully we will be able to book a school trip (if the Governement allows us!)

The newsletter is now on the class page.

Spellings and homework will be on  Google Classroom. 






Welcome back!

I hope you have all had a lovely break. This half term our topic will be castles. We will be looking at castles in general as well as in the local area. Hopefully (if we are allowed) we will be able to visit a castle on a school outing!

Please remember PE days are Monday and Friday and Spelling tests will be on a Friday.

Homework will be begin for Year One and Two and this will be posted on Google Classroom.

Dont forget  water bottles!








The children have made their favourite book characters and have enjoyed role playing with them. Well done Class One!

Welcome back to a new half term!


Well done for all your hard work last half term and I cant wait to see you all again after the 8th March!

This half term we will be looking at Space and poetry, as well as a new text in Literacy.

In Maths we will continue to work on number bonds, addition, subtraction and measurements. 

Its starting to look like like springtime so we will be investigating new plants, flowers and seasonal changes. 

Please let me know if you didn't receive your postcards, you all were sent one!

x keep going with all your amazing work and effort!







Happy New Year everyone! 

Its a different start to the year than expected but we must ensure everyone stays safe. It was rather late when the Prime Minister decided to inform of this so please allow me some time to add work on to google classroom for you. If there are any problems you all have my email address. I understand using Google Classroom isint always easy so just try to do little and often as much as you can.

There will be a box outside of the school front door with a Literacy book and a Maths book if you wish to record in these. It might be easier than working on the laptop and you could post a picture of it on Google Classroom or write a comment to say how you got on with it.

I will be prioritising Maths, Literacy and Phonics, whilst carrying on with our topic work on Toys in the past. Please continue to read as much as you can as the progress made was amazing and Id like to carry on where we left off as soon as we are back in school. 

Hopefully you should of all recieved a personalised message from me by the end of the day with any extra hints/tips/work but please understand I have 4 children at home with me, one of which has no unnderstanding of whats going on- so I wish us all the best of luck. x

Thursday 16th December we watched our perfomance and the children we really impressed! Well done everyone 




Week beg 14th December

The children have all been amazing in the Christmas play, we are super proud of all of them!

After Christmas we will be  carrying on with our topic of toys and looking at non fiction books.

We hope you all have a relaxing and wonderful Christmas!





This week we have made our very own Bog Babies!


On Wednesday 18th November Class One will be having a fundraiser! We will be selling our glass light jars that each child has made. The children have worked very hard on them and are really proud of them. Please help us to raise funds for Class One as our wish list is getting longer and longer. Every child will be able to take their jar home for a donation of £4 each. (please bring the correct amount as we are unable to give change) There will be a stall outside Class One on Wed after school.




Friday 6th November

The children have been busy learning about subtraction this week, using a number line.

We have enjoyed looking at everyone's favourite toys on Google Classroom, please continue to add any toys you love or your grandparents had so we can compare.

Many thanks

Wow we made it!! 

A huge well done to all the children (and parents) involved in Class One, we made it after 8 weeks.

Parents evening books are now open and will be in 10 min slots on 

Thursday 5th Nov 1-3pm and 4pm onwards

and Thursday 12th November 4pm onwards

Thank you for all your hard work and support in making sure the children come to school and are ready to learn. After half term we will be learning about toys. In 'normal' days I would of invited parents in to talk about any toys they had as a child, but if you have any old toys could you please post a photo on Google Classroom and we can explore it as a class.

Many thanks Ms Pickering x

Another busy week, the children have been writing their own stories this week. They have tried really hard to use noun phrases and my favourite word 'dazzling'

We are moving onto addition of 1 and 2 digit numbers.
