Hello and welcome to our class page! Our Teacher is Mr Wilkes and our LSP's are Ms Hickman and Mrs Rhooms. In our class we have lots of fun and love learning new things! On this page you will find our class news and lots of interesting pictures showing you what we have been getting up to!

Dates for your diary

*Have a great holiday


Important Information:

*The children start at 8:50am and finish at 3:00pm

*The children can bring in a named water bottle to go on their tables which needs to contain only water or squash.

*If your child wishes to, they can bring a break time snack such as fruit or raisins to eat on the playground at break time.

*The children can come to school in their PE kit on a Tuesday with appropriate footwear.

*Your child will be given a reading book specific to their reading level. We would like the children to read as much as they can at home and record this in their reading record. Books will be changed on a weekly basis.

*Homework can't be brought back into school so if there are any queries, please email the class email address. 

Thank you for your continued support :)


P.E Day:

Chicken are able to come to school in their PE kits on a Tuesday. Please ensure that appropriate footwear is worn and PE clothing is appropriate for the weather as our lessons will be outdoors on the playground.


Children will be given 1 piece of phonics homework a week to begin with. Due to the current situation, homework can not be brought back into school. However, if you do have any queries, please email us on our class email address. 


School Uniform:

Please make sure that your child’s name is written inside all school clothes (cardigans, jumpers, trousers, t shirts and coats). This makes it easier to give out misplaced clothes back to their rightful owners. Remember if you take your jumper off in class, place it in the take home box to keep it safe!



      Changing Books:  

Reading books are changed weekly, but this is not on a set day so it is very important that your child brings their book bag to school every day.

Please write a comment in your child’s reading diary when you hear them read.


Reading at home is extremely beneficial for your child. Therefore there will be a weekly reading challenge for all of the children in the class. If a child reads once a week at home and it is recorded in their reading record, they will receive a raffle ticket. At the end of every week, a winner will be chosen from the raffle and will receive a prize!



Mathletics, Purple Mash and Times Table Rock Stars:


Children can access these websites from home. Each child has an individual username and password. Mathletics and TTRS is an excellent resource which allows children to practise their mathematical skills.

Sports Afternoon

On Friday 9th July we all took part in a sports afternoon. We all had a fantastic time competing and cheering our teammates on in the different sporting events. Well done Year 1!

Olympic Workshop

On Wednesday 30th June we took part in an Olympic themed day. We started the day off by

watching a video all about the Olympics. Then, we went over to the hall where we got the opportunity to take part in different sporting events. We were split into 4 teams and competed in running, cycling, shooting and boccia events. During the afternoon we created our own Olympic torch and medal and then completed some more P.E activities outside. We had to much fun! Go team GB! 


National Sports Week

Starting on Monday 21st June, we are celebrating National Sports Week!

The theme for the week is to celebrate Sir Tom Moore by completing 100 minutes of exercise throughout the week, 100 reps of an activity each day and 100 seconds of a different activity each day. 

We have got our wall charts up on the wall ready to go, to see who is able to complete the Sir Tom Moore challenge!

Good luck everyone! 

Rockstar Day

On Monday 21st June we had a Musical Rock Star Day. We came to school dressed up as Rock Stars and throughout the day we completed lots of different activities related to music. What a fantastic day we all had! 


Euro 2021

From 11th June to 11th July, we will be celebrating and following the Euro 2021 tournament!

We have put up our wall chart and fixtures so that we can follow the games, looked into the different countries participating in the tournament and  designed out own football kits!

In one of our PE lessons as well, we will be participating in a football tournament and penalty shoot out with the winner receiving a prize!

What an amazing month of sport it will be! Come on England!




On Thursday 1st April, we celebrated Easter! We had lots of fun completing Easter activities. We have used our creative skills to create beautiful Easter crafts and we made lovely Easter Cards for our families. We also had lots of fun working as a team for our Easter Egg hunt! We hope you have a lovely break!

Red Nose Day

On Friday 19th March, we celebrated Red Nose Day by coming to school in brightly coloured clothes so that we could brighten up everyone's day! We also wrote down a joke so that we could have a LOL-A-THON at the end of the day! We stood up and performed our joke to the class so that we could end the day with a smile on our face

Year 1 Monday Gardening Afterschool Club with Ms Hickman.

On Tuesday 13th July, a few children from Lilies class met up and had a picnic on the playground. It was so lovely to see everyone and hear all about the exciting things you've been up to.

We hope you all have a lovely summer and can't wait to see you again in September. Stay safe! laugh







Welcome to Year 1 Lilies 


For help, advice and queries, you can email your child's class teacher at and they will assist you as soon as they can. laughyes

Good afternoon Lilies


Mrs Buthelezi, Mrs Begum and I are all missing you so much!

Some of our class have been back to school last week and it was brilliant to see the children that have been in, especially their smiley faces laugh


There is a home-learning section on the website under the 'Parents' section. There you will find activities split into four days for you to work on whilst you are at home. 

Myself and Miss Eades hope you enjoy completing the activities!

Don't forget to email with the work that you have done so I can choose the weekly VIP!



I can't wait to see you all again soon! laugh





Hi Lilies, it's Miss Slater laugh I hope you are all keeping safe and behaving.

It was so nice to speak to many of you this week, hearing your voices really made me smile! It was also lovely to hear what you had been up to, many of you can now ride your bikes (I am very proud of you!!) and have been baking (something that Miss Eades is very good at blush

Over the past week I have been planning some exciting lessons for you, spending time in my garden in the sunshine and planting some plants - can you remember what plants need to grow?  

I also watched the Little Mermaid at the weekend, Miss Eades even watched it too! smiley


Earlier in the week, it was Florence Nightingales birthday, she was born 200 years ago! Do you remember learning about Florence Nightingale in our History lessons? Florence Nightingale had a little message for you all to celebrate such a fantastic occasion, click on the link below:



Phonics lessons

To help you re-cap your Phonics before you come back to school, there are some videos suitable for Year 1

Click the link below laugh 


BBC Bitesize

BBC Bitesize have started to post lessons for you to access at home!
Use the link below and you will find daily lessons suitable for Year 1 in Maths and English, as well as regular lessons in other subjects such as Science, History, Geography!  smiley


White Rose Maths

White Rose Maths have produced some useful online learning maths activities. The link below sends you to the activities created for Year 1.  smiley



Hi Lilies, it's Miss Slater

I hope you are all ok and keeping safe laugh

What have you been doing to keep yourselves busy?  I have been going for a walk everyday as part of my hour outside, it is so nice to hear the birds sing. I have also been keeping busy in my garden and cleaning my house. 




If you have already finished your home learning pack that was sent home, then there is another pack at school that you could ask your grown up to collect for you yes




During the next 3 weeks in our English lessons we were going to be writing an adventure story! If you want to have a go at writing your own adventure story with lots of pictures that would be fantastic, let your imagination run wild! I am looking forward to reading it when we are back at school smiley




Why not go on a shape hunt around your house? How many different 3D shapes can you find? Were there any 3D shapes that you couldn't find?  Maybe you could have a go at writing down the names of the 3D shapes you found, how many faces, edges and vertices do they have?

You could also play shops with your grown up when it comes to lunch time and work out if you have enough money to buy your lunch or any snacks! 

Can you have a go at counting how many pairs of socks you have using your 2 times tables? Is there anything that you could use to practise counting in your 5 times tables or even your 10 times tables? smiley




Our new is Animals. Why not go out in your garden or look out your window and write down all the different animals you see throughout the day? You could also draw all the different animals that you can think of, could you have a go at grouping the animals together? What animals live in the jungle, sea or on land? 

The place an animal lives is called its habitat. Can some animals live in more than one habitat? 

To re-cap some of your previous knowledge on plants, why not have a go at drawing all the different plants/trees you may see when you go out on your daily walk or in your garden?

If you fancy a challenge, try to label the plant or tree! yes



If you are feeling creative, why not re-use any old cardboard boxes and make some masks! 

You could also use some coloured or plain paper and make some origami. When I was in school with some of the children, we had a go at making a crab and a shark, it is a bit tricky but with help from a grown-up I am sure you can achieve it!  Maybe you could make a range of different animals. I can't wait to see them! laugh




Hi Lilies! It's Miss Slater smiley

I really hope you are keeping safe at home and enjoying spending some time with your families. 

I thought I would add some more activities for you to have a go at each week. There are also some websites to have a look at as well.

Mrs Buthelezi, Mrs Begum and I miss you lots and we really hope you are keeping safe smiley




This week in English, we were going to be writing an information text all about an animal. If you fancy doing some research about an animal of your choice and creating your own information text then that would be amazing! I look forward to reading it when we're back at school!




In Maths this week, we were going to look at sequencing events, the days of the week and the months of the year. I thought that you could have a go at ordering the days of the week and months of the year at home, maybe you could write down special occasions that happen in some of the months (what month of the year is your birthday in?). To help you with sequencing events, maybe you could have a go at sequencing your new daily routine.




To re-cap some of your previous knowledge, I thought that you could have a go at a scavenger hunt around your house for objects made of different materials. We learnt about Materials back in the Autumn term, but I am sure that you will be able to remember a lot of different materials and have a go at finding them in your house (you could even try and make your own tick list as you find them!).




Other activities

Have you put a rainbow up in your window yet? If no, then make one it'll make someone's day! If you have why not make a beautiful sun to brighten up your day!



Story sessions


We all know how much you love reading so don't forget to relax with a good book!

I also know how much you all enjoyed listening to me read the slightly annoying elephant by David Walliams, so if you want to listen to some more of his stories then visit Everyday David Walliams will read a different short story at 11:00am



Scavenger Hunts


I have found some scavenger hunts to keep you extra busy whilst you are at home! 

When you have completed each one, make sure to tidy up and place everything back where it belongs. 








We have sent lots of Maths work home with you in your packs but here are some websites you could use!

Our new history topic is 'nurses'. This afternoon we had a visit from the school nurse, who gave us lots of information all about how important her job is and some of the daily tasks she has to carry out. We then compared nurses today to Florence Nightingale and learnt that we are very lucky to have such amazing nurses and doctors and that's all down to Florence Nightingale! Nurse Cherrie showed used how clean the bandages are and how she would bandage a patient up. We had a great afternoon!

On Friday 8th March we celebrated world book day! We all dressed up as our favourite characters and had lots of fun designing book covers and book marks! Take a look at our outfits!






Our topic this term is Weather!


To welcome out topic of weather, we had a hook day! On this day we learned lots of different things about different types of weather and even dressed for our favourite weather condition!



School Council

At Reddal Hill we appreciate pupil voice! We therefore have school council representatives across all year groups. Our current school council representatives in Year 1 Lilies are Phoebe and Hassan.

They attend meetings on Wednesdays to discuss pupils ideas and issues about what happens at school!


World Mental Health Day

For World Mental Health day we all wore green and paid a pound to support the amazing work of The Samaritans. We spent the day learning lots of different ways to look after our own minds and the minds of our friends! We learned how to be kind and considerate to other and how to understand our emotions. Every day in year 1, we use our 'feeling sticks' and put them in our 'feeling pots' and discuss our emotions. Miss Skidmore and Miss Foster help us to feel better if we say we are sad or angry and help us understand how to deal with these feelings!


All in all, Reddal Hill raised an amazing £314 for The Samaritans. This will really help keep the charity going and save many lives of people living with poor Mental Health.


Thank you very much for your generosity!


Fruit Tasting for Healthy Schools Week!

As part of healthy schools week, year one did a fruit tasting afternoon!

We tried lots of yummy fruit such as raspberries, pomegranate, pear, pineapple and sour lime... just to name a few!







At snack time, some of us in year one are very very fussy! But we all enjoyed trying different fruits and some of us even discovered some new yummy, healthy snacks!



Our topic this term is: Babies and Families


On Monday we had our hook day for our new topic. We learned lots of things about each other and our families! We spoke a lot about what makes us and our family special. We also wore our favourite clothes to school!
