Congratulations to all the children at Malmesbury who showed such good team spirit and sportsmanship during our recent Sports Day.
Especially well done to the Year 1 children who received medals for the different events,we are very proud of them!
We would like to say a big thank you to all the parents who were able to attend our lovely sporting morning.
Year 1 were very excited to meet Emma and Sarah from Chartwell Catering. They talked to us about healthy eating and we made our own healthy snack!
We hope you enjoy looking at our snacks, and that we can make these at home for all the family to try!
Whilst the weather is lovely, please ensure your child brings to school a sun hat and a bottle of water to drink during the day. Thank you!
On Tuesday 27th of June, Year 1 will be visiting St Peter's Church to meet with Hilary Wong. Please ensure you return the permission slip as soon as possible. Thank you!
The Year 1 children had an amazing adventure at Godstone Farm on Tuesday 16th May. We travelled by coach and arrived at the farm to be met by Farmer Jo. Farmer Jo took us on a tour of the farm, we even went on a tractor!
We saw many animals and were delighted to see a pig race! They ran very quickly and were very funny.
We hope you enjoy looking at our photographs!

World Book Day 2017
The children had a great day spending even more time reading and looking at their favourite books!
We were able to share our books with friends, write about why we like our books and spent time thinking about our favourite characters in story books.
Here are some pictures of our special day!
Don't forget all children will receive a National Book Token voucher which will allow them to buy a specially written book from leading retailers. Visit the World Book Day web site on www.worldbookday.com to find out more.
Welcome back to the second half of the Spring term!
Our book for this half term is called Lila and the Secret of Rain, a story based upon a village in Africa. This lends itself beautifully to our a topic focus of Geography and Science, as well as exploring another culture.
Please click on the link below for Home Learning information.
Year 1 had an amazing time with Thomas the Toy Maker who showed us many different toys made from wood, china, clay and metal. We thought about toys that we have today and compared them with toys from the past.
Some of the old toys were very scruffy or broken. Some of the toys needed to be pushed or pulled to make them work.
Our favourite toys were the puppets.
Elm Class' first Magical Maths champions...
Willow Class' first Magical Maths champions...
Year 1 are now able to take part in Magical Maths, which is a simple test on basic maths facts they are learning throughout their time in Year 1 and Year 2.
Letters have been sent home, but please click on the link below in case you missed it. Please work on the facts listed in the letter, to give your child the best chance of passing the test.
Spring term is here and we are looking forward to the weather improving!!
Our topic for this half term is 'Toys', which has a history focus and is something that the children really enjoy! Details of Home Learning activities can be found on the Home Learning link. Ideally your child should complete at least 1 piece of home learning each week, which they are encouraged to share with their peers.
We have arranged for a Toys workshop on Monday 23rd January, at school, which is a fantastic, interactive session with a trained actor who takes on the role of a Victorian toy maker. The session covers many subject areas and children who have attended the session in the past have remembered a lot of information.
Pictures from the session will be posted as soon as possible so you can join the fun!!
Airport Day in Year 1
Year 1 have had an exciting time travelling to India. We bought our bags with things that we would need to enjoy our 'holiday'. We hope you enjoy looking at our pictures of our day!
Mrs Ubi bought in some wonderful Indian treats for us to try, they were scrumptious!!!
Amazing Home Learning!!
We already have some superstars in Year 1. Emma has created a fantastic story wheel of The Snail and the Whale, and Srivathson has drawn a beautiful picture of his favourite part of the story!
Try and make sure you all complete at least 1 piece of home learning each week, it will really help you!
Welcome to Year 1 : Willow & Elm
Welcome back to a new and exciting school year!
The children in both Year 1 classes have settled well and are already trying hard to improve their learning!!
In the first few days we have been learning about new routines and expectations. A big thank you to the parents and carers who attended our 'Transition to Year 1' meeting on Wednesday 14th September, we hope you found it helpful.
For those of you who were unable to attend the meeting, this is some of the information we shared with parents and carers...
PE: Year 1 have PE on a Tuesday and a Thursday. Please leave the PE kits (clearly labelled with your child's name) in school, they will be sent home at the end of the half term.
Reading Books: Children receive a school reading book which is changed regularly. Our library visit is on a Wednesday. 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.
Thank you for your continued support!
