Malmesbury Primary School Brings Out The Best In Everyone

Year 1

Welcome back to the second half of the Summer Term.  The children still have a lot of exciting learning to do as well as great events like Sports Day and a visit to the seaside later in the term.


During the first week back the children were delighted to receive an amazing illustration from the author of a book we read last half term 'Goldilocks and the One Bear'  Leigh Hodgkinson.


She also wrote a letter to each child!  We were thrilled!  The illustrations will framed and displayed in our school library.  We hope you will find time to call in and see them!

Morden Hall Spring Walk...

The Year 1 classes had a lovely Spring walk to Morden Hall Park to learn about all the wonderful things that happen in nature during this time of year.


We were very lucky with the weather and our teacher's said our behaviour was perfect!


We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures of our visit.

Some of our lovely weather artwork and displays we have made over the last term...

Year 1 had the most amazing World Book Day!!!  Parents were invited in to share a story, which we really enjoyed!!


Later, Year 4 children came to visit us and they also shared stories with us.  


We are really working hard to improve our reading skills.


Thank you to everyone who came in to share a story with us.

Year 1 had the most fantastic time meeting a Victorian Toy Maker called Thomasina.  Thomasina showed us a lot of toys that children from the 1800's would have played with.  We learned that toys from that time were made from wood, metal or china because plastic had not been invented.


We loved being able to play with the toys and have written about our exciting visitor.  Take a look at our work when you visit on Parent's Evening!


We hope you enjoy looking at our photographs...



Remembrance Day 11th November 2018


The children have been learning about Remembrance Day, and we thought you would like to see our lovely display of poppies we have in class.
