Blackbirds – Year 1

Welcome to Blackbirds Class Page

We are a Year 1 class.

Our class teacher is Miss O’Kane.

Topic Dates Year 1 2018-2019

Follow the instructions to log onto Bug Club to read lots of fantastic books.

Spellings and spelling books will be given out each Monday and must be returned to school each Friday. This will start on Monday 24th September. 

Homework files will be given out this Friday 21st September with the first piece of homework in. Each Friday the children will alternate between a Maths or English homework which should be kept in this homework file at home and marked by an adult at home. Homework does not need to be returned to school until Wednesday 5th December. 


Library day is Monday. Please make sure your child has returned their book so that they can choose a new one.


Our P.E days are now Monday and Tuesday. The children will also have a gymnastics session on a Wednesday afternoon lead by a professional gymnastics coach. They will come home in their school tracksuit with their uniform in their P.E. bag. Please return the kit the school the next day.


We made a rain guage in Science to measure how much rain falls over 2 weeks.

Judo Demonstration

The children really enjoyed the Judo demonstration. They learned some moves that will be taught during the Judo sessions offered before school.


  • Autumn Nature Walk The Blackbirds went out onto the playground to search for signs of Autumn. We found that some of the leaves on the trees are starting to change colour and fall off.
