Welcome to

Blackbirds Class Page

We are a Year 1 class

Our class teacher is Miss O'Kane


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

As a class we have written this list of class rules:


  • Always be kind to other children. 
  • Always tell the truth. 
  • Try our best with all of our work.
  • Tidy away our own things.
  • Sit sensibly on the carpet. 
  • Put our hand up to ask or answer a question. 
  • Line up quietly and sensibly. 
  • Behave sensibly in the toilets.




Homework will be sent home each Friday on the back of the newsletter. Please encourage your child to complete this as independently as possible. We ask that you mark it and leave a positive comment and then file into the green homework folder. This should be returned to school on Monday 16th October for me to have a look at. Parents and carers are then invited into class on Thursday 16th October at 8.50am for the homework awards to be given out. 

Making fruit kebabs

Fruit faces inspired by Arcimboldo

We made our own rain gauge to measure rainfall over a week.

Hello Blackbirds,


We have had a brilliant first week in Year 1. We have been learning all about our class bird, the blackbird and made some fantastic bird collages. Next week we will be learning about the famous artist Arcimboldo. He painted pictures using shapes of fruits and vegetables. We will also be learning about how to stay healthy by eating fruits and vegetables and making our own fruit kebabs. 


Remember to bring your reading books and water bottles into school every day.


Please make sure that everybody has a P.E kit in school. 


Have a super weekend,

Miss O'Kane
