Summer Term 1

Summer Term PE DAYS: Tuesdays and Fridays

What a fantastic half term it has been! The children have all worked exceptionally hard in preparation for their final term in Year 1.

Phonics Screening Test

As we prepare for our phonics screening (the first week back after half term) the children will be coming home with a phonics booklet to complete during the holidays as homework instead of the usual spellings and maths. The children have been working extremely hard in school and it is important that this continues over the holidays to further embed sounds and maintain good practise of blending using consonant clusters. Please support your child to keep up with their reading over the holidays.  

We all hope that you have a wonderful break 😊

Land Art (inspired by Andy Goldsworthy)

A huge thank you to the parents who attended our Natural Sculpture day, we hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did. It was wonderful to see how much the children had remembered about Andy Goldsworthy and his style of art.


Bertie's Fundraising

A big well done to Bertie (and Henry) Bence who have been raising money for Alder Hey Hospital. Thank you to everyone who supported them. Here is a photo of the boys on their sponsored walk and a message from the family:

Thank you so much for your support with the boys’ charity fundraising. A total of £186.50 including cash donations plus £26.25 gift aid has been raised in all. A grand total of £212.25!! Well done everyone and thank you sincerely, every penny raised will make a huge difference to the many children and their families, who are treated at Alder Hey. And you helped us smash our £100 target.

Well done boys! 



All the children looked fantastic as we celebrated the King's Coronation on Friday. Our deacde was the 00s and through the week we looked at music from that time- ask your children if they can show you some of the dance we practised. We also learned some facts about King Charles III- perhaps see how many your child can remember? On Friday, we had lots of fun following instructions, which is our current English unit, to make the coronation quiche and all worked as a team to follow the different steps: rolling pastry; mixing cream, eggs and milk; chopping tarragon; popping broad beans... When it came together, it looked, smelled and tasted really good- a surprise to some who underestimated the skills of the children and staff involved!

Thanks for all your time and help to support children to come into school in their outfits. Everyone looked great and had a brilliant time at the street party over lunch time with music, special food and fun on the inflatable slides and obstacle courses... teachers included!

We have lots of pictures of the day that we are trying to share with you all but are currently having some technical glitches- I am hopeful these are resolved soon as we can't wait for you all to see the photos of this special day and talk about them with your children.


Kings Coronation 

Next week (15/5) will be our belated Kings Coronation week. The children will be completing various activities linked to King Charles III, the royal family and Great Britain. Each year group has been given a decade to celebrate. Year 1 will be going back to 2000 – 2009. Be prepared for them to share many new facts about the era. 

The children are invited to come to school on Friday 19th May wearing clothes from their decade, ready for our coronation party over lunch time. 

Natural Objects

In art we have been learning about the artist Andy Goldsworthy and discussing his land art. We would like to be able to create our own land art at school using natural objects such as sticks, flowers, plants, leaves, bark, shells, stones, feathers, and much more. We will be collecting natural objects at school and would like for children to collect some from their garden, the park, on their way to school or even go on a nature walk - the more objects we all collect, the better the land art will look! 

We would like to invite parents and carers to join us to be a part of this activity. We are planning for Wednesday 24th May from 2.00-3.15pm. Please notify us by email or in person if you would like to join us so we know who to expect. 

(Since this activity is weather dependent, please ensure you receive school texts in case of any amendment/cancellation to this date.)


Finally, a huge well done to our three certificate winners this week:

- Cassian for improving his reading skills and using them in all lessons

- Mia for being a wonderful citizen of OBPS- sensible, reliable, helpful, polite and friendly

- Max for doing some beautiful writing in poetry this week focussing on neat handwriting and good spellings




Well done this week to all the children who have earned 100+ TrackIt points and received their Silver Award certificates!

A futher well done to Albie, Jaspreet and Carter...

Carter got our citizen certificate this week for problem solving and managing situations with peers and staff very well- a top communicator!

Albie got our Reading Champion for being an overall superstar reader!

Jaspreet got the well done certificate for a lovely story this week in English!



Our new topic this term is called 'Back to Nature'. We will be learning about different plants in science, the differences between wild and garden flowers, evergreen and deciduous trees and identifying plants in our local area. In art, we will be developing our knowledge of natural objects and doing some observational drawings of these, then using Andy Goldsworthy as our inspiration, creating our own land art/ nature sculptures. In geography we are exploring weather patterns and also learning about the UK countries and capital cities. 

In English this week, we are improving our writing skills through non-fiction recounts of our holidays and then this week and next week through fictional narratives, using Nick Butterworth's Percy the Park Keeper series. We will be developing our descriptive writing of settings and characters and our understanding of the structure of stories (beginning, middle and end), progressing to writing our own version of a Percy the Park Keeper story. 

In maths we are counting in 2s, 5s and 10s this week and consolidating our knowledge of numbers to 50, deepening our understanding of tens and ones. 

Finally, we are very excited to announce Y1 will be recieving ukulele lessons from Trafford Music Service every Monday! The children had their first lesson today and made us proud with their excellent listening skills. Please look out for the letters that will be coming home soon with further details about lessons, looking after the instruments and a performance. 

Spring Term 2

SPRING TERM PE DAYS: Mondays and Fridays


Thanks to everyone who has worked incredibly hard this half term. I hope you all have a fun and relaxing break over the Easter holidays!

Well done to our certificate winners:

Bertie for having a great attitude towrads indpendent writing this week! 

Hugo for being a very good citizen and being kind and helpful to his friends.

Leia is our reading champion this week for working hard to develop her phonics knowledge.

And an extra well done to Bertie, Magnus and MAx for their extra maths work too!

Congratulations to you all for your hard work! 



This week's learning:

This week is our final week of term and so we will doing some assessments with the children in maths, English and phonics to see track their progress and development within these areas and understand what their next steps are for next term. These are always done in a relaxed environment and we call them 'special' pieces of work, explaining to the children that this is their chance to show us everything they have learned and improved with since the last piece. We always keep it very positive (they love being able to use 'special' pencils with rubbers on the end just for these occasions!) and we reward the children for their hard efforts. We also explain that if there is something they are unsure of then that helps us, as teachers, know what we need to help them with and what we need to practise more so that is a good thing. 

To break these up, we will be having some fun, practical science lessons where we will continue to investigate the properties of everyday materials and sort them according to these properties. We will be designing, building, testing and evaluating our own paper planes in DT and creating our own logos to go on them. In RE, we are continuing the study of Christianity on the build up to Easter and in assemblies we are continuing the theme of diversity. Towards the end of the week we will use simple maps in groups to have our very own Easter Egg hunt and we will make Easter cards.

Well done to our certificate winners:

Jenson for working hard in English, maths, PE and more! 

Max for being a very good citizen and showing kindness to his friends.

Imogen is our reading champion this week for working hard to develop her fluency when reading.

Congratulations to you all for your hard work! 



This week's learning:

This week we are continuing to celebrate diversity in our assemblies and will be discussing how we think about other people and how we treat them. 

In English, we are using Stephen Biesty's Flying Machines to explore the changes and improvements to planes through time since the Wright brother's Flyer. Children will be developing their knowledge of navigating non-fiction texts to withdraw information to answer questions. 

In maths, we are continuing our unit of Place Value to 50: counting with numbers to 50; looking at different ways to represent numbers; showing 10s and 1s; comparing 2 digit numbers to 50. 

In history, we are assessing the credibility of different sources and thinking about how we can use evidence to support our knowledge about events that happened in history. In geography, we are using compass directions to navigate a simple map using landmarks. 

In phonics we are nearing the end of Chapter 4b with the sounds 'ou' as /oa/ such as mould, 'ear' as /ur/ as in early, and 'ear' as /air/ as in bear.




Thanks for all the money raised for Comic Relief on Friday- we had lots of outfits that made us all smile and we learned a little about where our money was going and who it could help. Well done everyone, working as a team to help others.

Well done to our certificate winners:

Carter for doing some excellent writing and working hard to improve his sentences! 

Arlo for being a very good citizen and showing a good attitude to learning.

Norris is our reading champion this week for really improving his phonics and developing his fluency when reading.

Congratulations to you all for your hard work! 



This week, we will be reading Emma Jane’s Aeroplane in English and working with numbers to 50 in maths. We will be learning three new sounds in phonics: ‘y’ (i), ‘ou’ (oo) and ‘ou’ (u).

The teaching staff will be striking on Wednesday and Thursday; therefore, the school will be closed unless you have secured a place for your child.

Friday is Comic Relief day and the children are invited to come to school wearing something that makes them smile.

We look forward to the week ahead and we have kicked it off today with our Pupil Parliament voting!





A fun filled week was had by all last week. Firstly, I would like to say a huge thank you to the parents who came in to read with us for Book Week. I know the children thoroughly enjoyed having you in school with us. On book day we enjoyed creating two whole school stories which will be read out by Mr Cash in Monday’s assembly. The school was split into 2 teams and each given a list of random objects to incorporate into the story to make it as creative and unusual as possible. I wonder which team will have the created the best story? May the best, most creative team win! 

This week, we will continue our focus on ‘Planes and Navigation’. We will be re-capping the journey of The Wright Brothers and re-telling the story using simple sentences; Introducing Amelia Earhart and her success story, and again re-telling her story in full sentences. The children will continue to focus on: nouns, verbs and suffixes. 

In maths, we will be subtracting within 20 by finding 10.



We've had a great time today! Thank you to all the parents/carers who have supported your child with their outift today and with their enjoyment of reading!




It is Book Week here at Oldfield Brow, and we have a fun filled week ahead.

This week, we will be continuing our focus on our whole school book ‘The Lost Happy Endings’. Our focus in English is applying the past tense suffix ‘-ed’ and the present tense suffix ‘ing’ to verbs e.g. jump-jumping-jumped.

In maths, we are continuing subtraction with numbers to 20.

In D&T, we are designing our own paper aeroplanes using different design ideas, materials and sizes. We will test these next week, evaluate how they performed and improve our designs the following week.

In history, we are exploring the life of the Wright Brothers and what lead up to the amazing breakthrough in 1903 with the first successful flight.


Please check the image below for more details about the exciting activities during book week.

Welcome back everyone! We hope you had a well-deserved rest over the break and we are looking forward to hearing the children's news about what they have been up to...

This term's topic is Navigation Time where we will delve into history, discovering the journey of flight and finding out all about the Wright brothers. We will discuss the significance of different events and put them into chronological order using a timeline. We will also be developing our geographical knowledge by looking at maps and aerial photos of both our local area and other areas, identifying human (man-made) and physical (natural) features. We will also be using simple compass directions (North, East, West, South). In science, we will explore different everyday materials and their properties and in DT we will be designing and making our own paper aeroplanes with different materials, testing and improving our designs. 


This week in English, we will be reading the The Lost Happy Endings by Carol Ann Duffy. This is the text we are sharing across the whole school for World Book Day next Thursday and we will be using this text over the next two weeks. This week, we are making predictions about the text and looking at the structure of sentences, identifying nouns and verbs. Then we will use different nouns and verbs to write our own sentences about our shared text.

In maths, we have been adding with numbers to 20 and are now subtracting 1 digit numbers from 1 and 2 digit numbers to 20.




Spring Term 1


This term we will be exploring the similarities and differences between a variety of mammals, reptiles, birds, fish and amphibians, thinking carefully about their characteristics. We will be looking at what they eat and whether they are herbivores, carnivores or omnivores. We will compare domestic pets (and how we look after them) and wild animals (and how they survive in the wild). We will be developing our 'facts vs opinions' knowledge and using this to help us create our own animal fact files! It's going to be an amazing term! 



What a wonderful term we have had! Thank you for welcoming our new Headteacher, Mr Cash, and helping our school to uphold high expactations of behaviour, attendance and uniform. Everyone is looking very smart and approaching each day with a great attitude towards learning. 

The children in Y1 have really enjoyed our Amazing Animals topic and developed a wealth of knowledge and new vocabulary. As promised, here are the photos of the posters they presented - ask them if they can remember the facts about why the animals are endangered, how we can help them and any other interesting facts...


I would also like to give a shout out to our 3 certificate winners:

- Balpreet, for being a great role model to others: kind, helpful and a good attitude towards learning!

- Levison, for working hard to improve the presentation of his writing and always trying his best to make his work better!

- Allen, our reading champion this week for becoming a much more fluent reader!


Following on from Mental Health Awareness week, instead of homework KS1 have included a booklet full of kindness activities. You can support your child to work through as few or as many as you would like to over the holidays. Any photos of acts of kindness can be emailed in so we can share them at our first KS1 assembly after the holidays. We hope you all have a wonderfully deserved break! 




During our final week of term we will be bringing our Amazing Animals topic to a close by looking endangered species, what is threatening them and what can be done to help. We will work collaboratively in groups to plan our animals, research some facts and put together a group poster that we will present to the other Y1 class... pictures of the posters will be published at the end of the week!

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, we will be completing some collage artwork of different animals to calming music as a mindfulness activity and we will connecting as a class to design our own dance to perform later in the week in assembly, along with some other classes. To round the week (and the term) off, we are really looking forward to watching Y1EG's assembly on Friday afternoon! 


27/1/23- Certificates

Well done to Balpreet for really working hard to improve your writing this week- much better spellings, presentation and punctuation.

Congratulations to Lidia for making great improvements in your reading and becoming much more fluent.

And, finally, thank you to Magnus for being a wonderful citizen this week- you have concentrated well, listened carefully and worked hard.

Have a great weekend everyone!


25/1/23- Amazing Animals Day

What a fantastic day we have had today in Y1!

First, the children enjoyed exploring how animals such as seals, dolphins and whales stay warm in the freezing cold environment in Antarctica by using "blubber" to dip their hands in icy cold water- they were very impressed with how it kept the cold out! We also explored how a penguins waxy feathers make it waterproof, which allows them to be more streamlined swimmers and keep warm and dry.

We also investigated how nocturnal animals use their senses of touch and hearing rather than sight. The children felt different items in opaque envelopes, described them and guessed what they might be- they had some incredibly accurate guesses and thought well about their descriptions. They also practised identifying different animals by listening to the sounds they make and even the adults felt some were very tricky! They worked well and there was some lovely pair work with children explaining their reasons for their choices to each other. We even moved around the classroom like different animals for our 'brain breaks' today too.

However; the highlight of the day had to be our real-life animal visitors from Zoolab. We were thrilled to welcome Chris into school with his collection of small animals that live with him at home... A giant African Land Snail, a Madagascan Hissing Cockroach, a Chilean Rose Tarantula, a North American Cornsnake, a White Treefrog, and a rat. 



We have had a fantastic start to the new year with very positive attitudes towards each other and our work. We have been developing some excellent vocabulary around our new topic and turned this into some beautifully presented fact files about animals. Well done Y1! 

Our certificates this week go to: Cassian as our Champion Reader for doing such a wonderful job with phonics this week; Norris as our citizen of the week for having such a hard working attitude in maths, Englsih, topic and more; and Lidia gets the Well Done Award for her amazing work about animals this week. Well done to you all! 


We also had lots of fun competing in our strawberry lace challenge... Well done to Cassian and Arlo as the winners, everyone else- keep trying!




Autumn Term


A gigantic WELL DONE to all the children of Y1 who did themselves proud with their wonderful Nativity performance!!! We hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did. We have been tremendously pleased with all the chidlren's hard work and effort- and the end result really paid off!

We have had so many exciting activities taking place this week so below are some pictures of the children having fun at the Y1 Christmas party on Thursday morning, decorating their gingerbread men and trees on Thursday afternoon and finally relaxing with their marble treat Movie Morning on Friday... a wonderfully festive end to a wonderful term!

Lastly, we would like to express our thanks for all the lovely cards and gifts we have recieved. These things are never expected and always very much appreciated. We are very lucky to have such kind and generous parents and such beautiful children. We wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. We hope you have time to relax, spend time with loved ones and have fun. 

See you in the New Year, Miss Cooney and Mrs Wood

As well as a big shout out to Lidia, Lev, Leia, Mia and Jenson for completing their Rainbow Challenge this week. Keep it up everyone... another fantastic week in Y1! 


Last week:

Children in Need! 

Thank you so much to all the children who contributed money and supported a fantastic charity who do so much good work. We enjoyed dressing up in our spots and taking a penalty shoot out from the spot too- all while raising money for a good cause! 



A very big well done to all our certificate winners too- Arlo for doing excellent addition and subtraction, Allen for being a brilliant citizen and Mia for being our Reading Champion! 




We celebrated Remembrance Day today by learning about who we are remembering and why, as well as why we wear poppies. Well done to Y1 children who showed great respect during the minute's silence and the subsequent discussions.

We had a wonderful time at John Leigh Park for our Autumn walk! 



Our firework pics... we hope you like them!



We have had a great week back after half term learning about the story of Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot, listening to some firework poems and then writing our own, creating our own firework pictures with paint and silouhettes (photos to come!) and enjoying our new PE unit of yoga. 

Our new topic is Seasons and Senses and next week we are planning a trip to John Leigh Park to observe the changes Autumn brings in our local environment. The new Chatterday homework was sent home on Friday and and a letter has also been emailed out about phonics, along with reading books and spellings, so please check for that if you haven't already read it.  We will upload all three documents in the Downloads section of this webpage also. 

Well done to this week's Rainbow Challenge certificate winners who completed all five challenged around the room this week: Imogen, Arlo, Albie, Jenson, Mia and Hugo!


A big shout out also to Cassian for being our Citizen of the Week for always having an enthusiastic attitude, Magnus for achieving our Well Done certificate for great focus and work in phonics and maths as well as Layton for getting the Reading Champion certificate!


We hope you all have a safe and happy weekend enjoying Bonfire Night!!!



21.10.22 - Half-Term Sponsored Read

To celebrate and encourage a lifelong love of reading at home and school, we are running a sponsored read over half term 22/10/22-30/10/22. 
The project is being organised in conjunction with our local Usborne Partner, and all the money raised will go towards brand new books for our school. In addition to the sponsorship money, Usborne will also donate up to 60% of the total raised in EXTRA FREE BOOKS to the school. So, for every £600 raised, we will get an extra £360 in FREE Usborne books! 
We always aim to beat our last year’s target which was £1000 in sponsor money with Usborne donating an additional £600 of books for free if our target is met. This will give us a total of £1600 to spend on new books and resources for our children. 
Please help us to enhance our reading resources for pupils by encouraging your child to spend a small amount of time each day either reading to themselves, to others, or being read to. They can read books, comics, magazines, newspapers, menus, websites, recipes, poems, leaflets, instructions – anything with words!  For younger children in EYFS they can listen to the adult read their books and that still counts. 
The class who have the most recorded minutes will win an extra free book and a small treat! All children will receive a certificate for taking part. 
If you are able to support our sponsored read, please find on the reverse a sponsorship form and an extra reading log for your child if they wish to use it to record their reading.  Please send any money in a named envelope with the class name and the amount raised alongside the forms by Friday 4th November. 



A huge well done to the WHOLE of Y1SC who did an amazing job with their first assembly of the year. You worked very hard this week to remember when it was your turn to speak, remember your lines and use your big voices to project them- a fantastic job! 

A big shout out to this week's certificate winners: Max (for doing a great job remembering his lines in the assembly and saying them in a big voice), Jenson (for being our superstar reader of the week) and Leia (for being a very good citizen and showing how to be a kind and caring friend). A particularly big well done to Mia who recieved the Headteacher's Award for being an excellent role model, working hard in all areas of school and always trying her best!

Great job team! I hope you all have a well-deserved fun and restful half term. 



A big well done to Imogen for being our citizen of the week this week for showing kind, respectful, helpful and hard-working attitude at all times!

Well done to Albie for doing some incredibly neat, independent writing this week using excellent punctuation and extended sentences!

Our Reader of the week is Bertie for his great effort during phonics lessons, becoming much more confdent recognising vowel digaphs and blending them! 


Finally, a big well done to all the children who completed their Rainbow Challenge this week too- Imogen, Levison, Arlo, Jenson, Jaspreet and Cassian.



We hope to see you in person next Friday for our Y1SC assembly (at 2.15pm)... we are very excited to share our work with you.

Have a great weekend everyone.



At Oldfield Brow we are proud of our student's achievements both in and out of school. This week we would like to say a big well done to Mia for her success in gymnastics! 

We would also like to congratulate Levison, Allen and Lidia for being awarded the first certificates of Y1!

These will be awarded each week on a Friday afternoon so keep checking here for the winnners :) 

Enjoying poetry time this week - to celebrate National Poetry Day we shared lots of poems all week and discussed which ones we liked the best and why.



A very big thank you to all those parents who attended our Curriculum Evening this week.

We hope you found the information useful and will pass it on to others who couldn't make it. The PowerPoint is available in the Downloads section.

We have seen a big increase in the number of children now using the online Ed Shed reading books... it would be even better for this to continue to increase though! Thank you for your continued support with this, reading really does open the door to the rest of the curriculum.

Have a great weekend everyone :) 



Beeston Castle!!!

We had a fantastic time exploring the grounds, finding out about paiges, squires and knights, learning about archers and swordsman and seeing the views form the top of the castle... have a look at our photos below: 

Ready to go...

Our Woodland Walk...

Looking for dragons- we found their cave!


The secret wall...

Learning about knights... and servants...


Exploring food from the past...

Learning how to fight with a sword...



 The walk to the top... we could see for miles- great for spotting enemies! 


Finally there!






Just a quick note to remind everyone that the children's reading books are available online via Ed Shed. These are part of the English homework set in Y1 and are specifically chosen to fit with the phonics sounds your children have been learning in school and the sounds they will use in their spelling words that week. They will be available all weekend for further practise and are very helpful to aid your child to become a more confident reader and writer. There will normally be 4 books set per week, each focussing on a different sound. They are only short and and have nice comprehension questions to ask at the end. Please support your child's learning by reading a short book with them and talking about it each night. If you have any issues at all logging in then please let us know as soon as you can and we will help...  we can see who is reading :)



BEESTON CASTLE... here we come!

Please see the letter that was emailed out (and is available in the Downloads section) about our upcoming trip to Beeston Castle. A big thank you to our Friends of the School who have contributed towards this trip to reduce the cost for parents. The trip has been organised for Monday 26th September... any questions, just get in touch! 




Well what a super first week we have had- I bet the children and adults alike will sleep well tonight and enjoy the extra long weekend! Here are a few snaps of the children enjoying PE today, practising their jumping skills... 




Children have brought home their first homework with them today, along with a letter explaining how this works. Simply put though, they will receive:

1. English each week (which is their online reading books and learning their spellings, for which there will be a test each Friday).

2. Maths each week, which will be on a sheet.

3. Chatterday- optional, extra activities. This will be linked to our topic and given at the start of each half term with enough ideas to keep the little ones going throughout the half term. 

Homework will come home in the children's reading folder each Friday, and can be returned the same way each Wednesday. 

Login for Ed Shed: Each child has a unique login for Ed Shed where they can access their spellings and reading books. This has been stuck in the back of their reading record/diary. (Please also practise writing the spellings on paper though as this is how they will be tested.) 

The letter explaining all about this is available in the Downloads section. Any queries, just email me at year1sc@oldfield-brow.com or catch me at the door. 

Thank you in advance for helping support your child's learning at home. Have a great weekend everyone :) 



We have had a fantastic first week getting to know our way around the classroom, doing some phonics, reading, writing and maths and having some fun with our friends!

We sent children home today with a book and a letter explaining how phonics and reading will work this year. Please take the time to read this letter (it can also be found in the Downloads section) and if you have any queries then please just ask us. 

We will soon be uploading some information about reading days, homework, etc. but all of this will take off properly next week, once the children are completely settled in. Please see below for PE information for this term. 

We will regularly upload pictures of the children and keep you updated about our activities on this blog so please keep checking back here. Also, please ensure you have granted or denied permission for pictures of your children to be shared on the website or Twitter, according to your preference.
