Year 1






Welcome to Year 1!


This term we are focusing on Geography. Our topic questions is;


Why can't a meerkat live in the North Pole?


We will be looking at animals from hot and cold climates and comparing their features to see why they are suited to their habitats. We will be talking about different types of animals e.g. birds, mammals, insects too. As well as comparing animals, we will be taking a closer look at our local area and making simple maps of our school.


Don't forget to check the James Brindley Twitter page; @JamesBrindleyPS for more updates too.



Our Assembly is on October 19th


Our PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays.

Please make sure PE kits are in school for these days - including pumps.

Please remove earrings for PE days or ensure your child knows how to remove them.


Please take the time to look through the Year 1 end of year expectations below.


 If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to us or make an appointment.


We look forward to a successful year with your child.

Grandparent Interviews

Grandparents who ventured into Year One yesterday were interviewed to within an inch of their lives by our fabulous and inquisitive children. The children showed great interest in what the world was like in "black and white" and all grandparents who attended were very happy to relay tales of their own school days. As this was such a lovely social event, cold drinks and cakes were very much necessary to complete the afternoon. Thank you to all grandparents who were able to enlighten our children about days gone by.
