Class 1B 2019 - 2020

Mrs Bateman

Welcome to Year 1

These are our school 'rules'. We have talked about what each one means and how we demonstrate each of these in school.

This page will be updated regularly so you can keep up with what we have been learning.

If you need any help or support while learning at home, please contact me on parentcontact@flixtonprimaryschool.org.uk and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

I understand you are juggling home learning with childcare and working from home. Please find a pattern that suits you and your family's situation and don't panic if it all seems overwhelming. We are all adapting to a very new way of working and we will get there together. 

Thank you for your continued support

Mrs Bateman :)

March -

Have a look at the gallery of our choice time today. We had a great time playing with our friends.


Trophy winners AGAIN 1B! An amazing 100% of you have read at home 4 times a week or more EVERY SINGLE WEEK since January. That is a fantastic achievement. I am so proud of your effort and you progress in reading. Keep it up! (I think the trophy looks very at home in our classroom and would like us to keep it there!!)

World Book Day March 4th

We shared our clues and props to describe our favourite book characters. We also joined with our link class to share books together. See the gallert for more pictures.



February - Sponsored grounds event

We had a fabulous day with Mr Moulton and the junior eco team to work in our school grounds. We made bird feeders...did bird spotting...made eco beds...dug out planters...and had a great time!! See us in action in the gallery.


January - A huge thank you parents and 1B superstars. Due to your superhuman effort to read and sign your reading racetrack book every week we won the trophy AGAIN! We earned second place this time with an impressive 96.3% of the class moving 7 places around the reading racetrack in 9 weeks.

You have proved the saying right... “success comes through personal effort” 

I am very proud of all of you. Keep up the good work.



December - We had a fun filled party today for our Christmas party. We did Christmas activities, played games and really enjoyed the magician. We even had a very special visitor who found time in his busy schedule to pop in and leave us a gift. Have a look at the gallery for photos. 


We had a fantastic afternoon with our fabulous food technology teacher Mrs Tatham. Under her talented watchful eye we spread, rolled, flattened, squashed and decorated. Have a look at the gallery to see us in action.



We had a very fun and soggy grounds day with Mr Moulton. We worked with a Year 6 to create our own stick families based on the story Stickman by Julia Donaldson. We warmed up by the fire pit and even had some smores as a treat! See us having fun in the gallery.



November - Thank you for your fantastic support. We achieved a hugely impressive 100% of children  moving 7 or more places around the reading racetrack last half term. This means that we won the first place KS1 trophy! We get to keep it until after Christmas.

On Remembrance day we joined people across the country in wearing our poppies and observing a minute's silence at 11 o'clock. We watched the poppies video from cbeebies and thought about how the rabbit felt during the battle. I was very proud of the thoughtful way the children kept the silence and showed RESPECT for all those lost during the war. Have a look at the short video clip at the bottom of the page.

Our link class 4L invited us to see their spooky tunnels they had made during their forest schools day with Mr Moulton. They looked fantastic and we really enjoyed it. Thank you very much 4L!

Have a look at our gallery.


Happy half term everybody!

We had an amazing amount of children earn their first reading racetrack prize for completing their first lap of the reading racetrack. Thank you for your fantastic support. I can see lots of children making good progress in their reading because they are reading regularly at home.  Keep reading over the holidays and there will be 2 more moves to make!


Thank you so much for your fantastic support. On Friday every single person in our class brought their reading racetrack book in. What a fantastic start! Don’t forget them again this week.


Our reading racetrack is all set up and ready to go. To get those cars zooming around the track we need to read 4 times a week, get the record book signed and return it on Friday.



Have a look at our first week in action in the gallery.

The children have made a fantastic start to Year One and are settling in well. We have spent a lot of time learning new routines and getting to know where everything is in our new classroom. We have started by showing our best and we have had a great first week. Mr Redmond has been very impressed with how grown up the children have been in assembly and I am impressed with the hard work they have shown towards their learning.
