The Pilgrim School

Year 1

Who are we?

We are the Year One class in the Pilgrim School.


What does this mean?

It means that we are compassionate - we care for each other!

We persevere  -  we try our best and never give up!

We are so proud of ourselves!

Miss Cadby, Mrs Wadlow and Mrs Ghuman are giving us confidence, independence, a love of learning, and lots and lots of great memories!



Look and see our phonics learning for the week.
Monday May 16th

Phonics from Monday June 6th

This is our timetable 

(It is subject to change.)  

We have PE on Friday mornings and computing at different times of the week, depending on what we are learning.


What will we be learning in terms 5 and 6?



Grandparents Afternoon

Thank you so much for coming and making our afternoon special!  We loved showing you our classroom.


We loved our Reading Cafe afternoon!  Thank you for coming.

Our scented candles to help us feel calm

We know there are things happening at the moment so we decorated scented candles that could help us feel calm if we are worried.  We are decorating our candles here.  We were singing and dancing to our favourite song at the same time! 

Don't worry, we won't light the candles!  They will just help us feel calm when we smell them.

Here we are planting our seeds of hope with our Year 6 buddies!



We went for a walk around the village of Borstal.  We found natural features (river, hills, field) and human features (roads, bridge, school, playground)


More memories with our Year 6 buddies!

Making Easter gifts and searching for eggs together!



Click below to have a closer look at us creating our own version of Kandinsky's work.

Here is our Human Numberline!

We have it above our whiteboard in the classroom and use it to help us with our maths.


You may have heard us talking about models and symbols we use to help us visualise our maths.  Take a look at these pages which explain > < and = symbols, as well as the whole / parts model and the ten frame. 

We usually use counters to help us, but have used our own special counters for this page!



These photos show us working together in our maths lessons.

We have been weaving with paper as part of our Art and Design work.

We worked together to create this new alphabet to help us remember the letters.  We use it when we are writing at school.  Maybe you could print it off and it will help you when working at home.



We are getting better and better at working as a team.  We are even developing new friendships since joining Year One.

We made bookmarks for new friends and wrote something nice about them on the back.

Here we are giving our bookmarks to our friends!


Look at the great memories we have made.  Special moments!

(Don't forget to scroll down on the page.  You won't want to miss our Secret Santa photos!)


This is what we enjoyed learning in Terms 3 and 4


This is what enjoyed learning in Term 2.


Our learning in Term 1



These are some of the things we did in Year One last year!  I'm sure we will make even more memories this year.


We use these pictures to help us remember the digraphs and trigraphs.  They can help you when writing at home if you are muddled




Such special memories with our Year 6 reading buddies!
