Dippers – Year 1

Welcome to Dippers!


We are a Year 1 class and our teachers are Mrs Bosworth and Mrs Oasgood.


All belongings should have children’s names on, this includes PE kits, book bags, coats and water bottles.

PE is on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Please make sure the children have their kits in school on each of the above days.

Library in every Monday.  Please return books each week so your child can choose a new one to bring home.

Reading books should be brought into school every day.

Spelling books will be sent home on a Monday and should be returned to school on Friday.



We have been really busy over the past few weeks, I can’t believe we’ve been in Year 1 for 6 weeks already!  take a look below at some of the things we have been up to.

We will be raising money for Autism Together as part of our charities work this term.  All the children in Dippers will be taking part in a sponsored yoga session, photographs will be uploaded soon!  Thank you in advance for any sponsorship money raised.  There will be a charities assembly on Friday 25th October at 2.30pm in the school hall that parents are welcome to attend.







Raising money for World Mental Health day.  We all wore something that was yellow.




Making aeroplanes out of Lego.  We had to make the wingspan as wide as we could.




For our non-curriculum day we did lots of activities based on the story Stick Man by Julia Donaldson.  We came up with lots of different things we could use a stick, we made our own family trees, we found out how paper is made and collaged our own Stick People.  It was great fun!










We have had a lovely first week getting to know our way around our new classroom and catching up with all of our friends.

We have learnt all about dippers – they are really interesting birds.  Did you know that they have a third eyelid that they use when the are swimming underwater that acts like swimming goggles!  We have made our own split pins birds and drawn some pictures of dippers.

We are looking forward to our next topic which is Airport.

We will let you know over the next few weeks what are our regular days for PE are.  We will have PE on a Wednesday afternoon so the children will come home in their PE kits, please make sure they are sent back into school on Thursdays please.

Reading books will be given out sometime over the next couple of weeks, in the mean time all children have books allocated on Bug Club.  we will be reading lots in class as well.


Check back in a week or so for more updates!
