A giant egg in Year 1!

Friday 20th March | 4 comments


We have had a very eggciting week!! We received a letter from somebody called Doris saying she had laid her egg in our school grounds but couldn’t remember where. She left us some clues to read and we had lots of fun following them. At the end of the hunt was a beautiful blue egg. We carried it carefully back to our room and made it a comfy nest.

We then worked hard writing lots of questions about the egg and drawing pictures of what we thought was inside it. “Is it a lizard?”  “I think it is a scaly snake.”  “I think there is a unicorn in the egg.”

The next day the egg had hatched and inside we found even more clues – blood, slimy snot, a tooth, a claw and some burnt paper. How exciting – a baby dragon called Doogi had been living in our room!! We all wrote letters to Doris and she replied.  A brilliant week of English with so much fun and learning taking place.

In phonics we have revised au/aw/or/er/ir/ur/oo/ew/ue/u-e. Have fun playing the games at home! We also enjoyed reading our new ‘phonic’ books with a friend.


This week we have had fun counting in multiples of 10s. The children have used numicon and dienes to help them count, look for patterns and solve problems. Can your child tell you which numbers are odd and which are even?

We enjoyed singing this song.

We then moved onto learning about measuring and have focused on length. The children used the language taller, longer and shorter to compare different objects.


On Monday we went for a walk to Pudsey Civic Hall for a space themed music event. We heard stories and joined in with lots of new songs. We really enjoyed listening to the band. Can your children remember any of the instruments that the band played?

We have attached some of the work that we have sent home this week. Packs are ready for the children who have been absent this week. We will let you know how you can pick them up from school over the coming weeks.

Take care and keep in touch with us by commenting on the blog or sending us an email. Thank you for all your kind words and support over the last few weeks.

    Thank you for giving them such an egg-citing last week. It looks like you all had an egg-cellent time.

    In all seriousness, thank you so much for everything have done and continue to do. I know we all really appreciate you keeping things safe and calm at school.

    We’ll keep working with them at home and can only hope that we manage half the job that you do every day at school.

    Stay safe and we’ll see you all soon xx
