Malmesbury Primary School Brings Out The Best In Everyone

Year 1

Anyone for tennis?

The Year 1 children and teachers had an amazing morning learning tennis skills with the fantastic coaches from Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Association.   


We learned how to bounce and balance balls, how to work with a partner and about throwing and catching. Thank you to the coaches for helping us learn new skills.  We hope you enjoy looking at our photographs!

More Magical Maths stars!!!  Well done!!

Spring Term!


Welcome back to Spring term!  The year is already starting to fly past!


Our topic for this term is 'Toys', which will focus upon history and science.  We have a very exciting visitor coming in to see us and teach us about toys in the past - please see our letter for details.


Please also click on the link in 'Children' to see our current 'Home Learning' sheet.  The children really enjoy sharing their learning with the class, so please try to complete as many tasks as you can during the half term.  Thank you!

General information:



PE:    Please ensure your child's PE kit is clearly labelled and left in school.  The kits will be sent home at the end of each half term.


Reading Books:  Children receive a school reading book which is changed regularly.  We visit the school library each week and the library is open after school if you would also like to visit with your child.


Please sign the Home School Diary when you read with your child. 


Times:  School begins at 8.50am and ends at 3.10pm - please help us to help your child settle into their day of learning by ensuring they are on time.


Homework:  Each half term we send home a sheet with ideas and activities for you to work on with your child.  Work can be sent into school and is displayed and shared with the other children.


Contact:  If you need to speak urgently to any of the Year 1 teachers, a brief message can be given in the morning or at the end of the day.  If you need more time, please let the office know and make an appointment.
