Welcome to Parkdale Primary School Moving Forward, Learning Together

Year 1 – Palm & Chestnut

Welcome to Year 1 - Palm and Chestnut !


HELLO everyone we hope you had lots of fun in the holidays.
Mrs Mason, Mrs Rolling, Miss Stafford, Mrs Hutchins and Mrs Mason are looking forward to hearing all your exciting news. We hope you are ready for your last term as Team Year One! 
We will be working together on our new topic this summer term called The Great Outdoors - fingers crossed for lovely weather!


 Remember it is super important to read regularly and practice your phoneme recognition. Be like a detective and try to spot them in your reading books! Also practise your word lists as well as counting in ones, twos, fives and tens -  both forward and backwards!

Also,  please choose three things that you are going to attempt from our homework menu - which you can find below.
We love seeing all the creative ways you interpret the homework tasks and love to display your work on our Homework Wall which is at the entrance to 1 Palm. Let's hope we get lots of fab things to fill the wall this half term!! 

Finally don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the links to safe internet searching, maths, literacy and other sites that we use in class as well as the links to Phonics Bug and Oxford Owl where you can do lots of eReading.

Water Bottles cheeky

Please remember that children should bring water, in a water bottle, which they can drink throughout the day.

This should be taken home, washed and refilled daily. Thank you.

PE Kitsfrown

Both Palm and Chestnut have outdoor PE on Wednesdays.
Indoor PE is now on Tuesdays for Palm

Children should bring their kit and keep it on their pegs for the week.
Please can we also ask all earrings (plus any other jewellery items) are removed prior to school on these days .

All the children will have the opportunity to visit the library and change their library books.
