Winnall Primary School

Orange - Year 1

Hello and welcome to year 1! Your class teachers this year are Mrs Gunning Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Rickman Wednesday-Friday. Miss Robinson and Miss Hutton also work in class and they are in every day.


We currently have PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please come to school in your PE kits on those days. At present, reading books are changed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please try and read every day with your child and practise those tricky words!


This term’s big question is, ‘Is big always better?’ For Autumn 1 we will be looking at a variety of different minibeasts and their habitats.


If you are having to self isolate, please look in the subheading 'self isolation' or the other subheadings for more activities.

Story - The Koala who could

A little story with a ridiculous introduction - apologies, it was my first try!

Reading - 


We have set up Oxford Owl, this is an online resource for children to access books online. The log on is Winnall Orange and the password is Orange. Everyone can access it at once and you can select the level of book which your child requires. 


Please try and encourage your child to read every day - this will make a huge difference. Regular stories are also very important for children's development - please read to them as regular as possible. All books / online stories are good! 

Christmas challenges

We had a great morning working together to accomplish different challenges:

building Santa's sleigh and ramps for them to go down; decorating Christmas cards; building stables for the animals and making chimneys for Santa to go down.

Below is a link to some free Christmas games. They can be played on any device and shouldn't take long!
