Year 1

KS1 pupils sing at Abbey House Care Home

The Y1 and Y2 children walked down to Abbey House Care home where they entertained the elderly ladies and gentlemen whilst they ate their breakfast. The children sang beautifully and were rewarded with chocolate 😊

Newarke House Museum

As part of their history topic about toys, the Year 1 pupils and staff visited Newarke Houses Museum. It was a child’s paradise, being able to try out all sorts of different toys from a considerable time ago and from not so long ago.
What we all played with before Ipads, X-boxes and other electronic devices ! 😊

Year 1 community walk

Year 1 pupils went on a community walk as part of their Geography topic. They were looking at physical and human features, different types of houses, the fire station amongst other things in New Parks.

Phonics

Year 1 are working really hard on our phonics at school and it would be great if you could also play some phonics games at home. Here are some links that will support your child with their Phonics learning.

Year 1 Football

Here are the Leicester City stars of the future!! We need some at the moment. Foxes never quit and children at Stokes Wood don’t either.

Battle of Bosworth

The Battle of Bosworth came to Stokes Wood very recently. King Richard 111 of York and his army fought against Henry Tudor of Lancaster and his army.
As we know it was King Richard’s last battle and the rest is history!

The Year 1 children learned all aboutthe battle whilst being a soldier in one of the armies.

Gorse Hill Farm visit

As part of our Science and Geography topics, we visited Gorse hill Farm. We walked all the way too. As you can see we saw lots of animals and learned all about how they live, where they live, what they eat and lots more.

Year 1 love reading

On the snow day, the storyteller from the library came to Stokes Wood and stayed all morning because the other schools were closed. We loved it!
