Buttercups and Daffodils

Welcome to Class 1

 Brilliant Buttercups and Delightful Daffodils!

We are the best year group in the school! We have lots of fun learning through play and exploring. 

Our teachers are Mrs Foxall (Brilliant Buttercups) and Miss Collett (Delightful Daffodils) and our teaching assistants are Mrs Lloyd and Mrs Kilborn. On Monday afternoons Mr Yates teaches us PE! 

Please remember:

  • Our P.E. day is on a Monday. Please ensure that your child comes to school in their P.E. kit on this day. 
  • Make sure all items of clothing, book bags and water bottles are clearly labelled with your child's name.
  • Please ensure you are listening to your child read three times per week with a signed entry in the diary. 
  • Please keep wellies and a raincoat in school so that we can be outside in all weathers. In the winter, please make sure your child comes to school in a warm coat. 
  • No toys are to be brought into school. 
  • Learning through play can be messy! We endeavour to keep the children clean using aprons but sometimes mess on clothes is unavoidable. 

Little Explorers

Here at St Michael's, we are blessed to have amazing school grounds. At least once a week, we make use of our school grounds and spend all afternoon outside! We passionately believe that taking our learning outdoors provides the children with rich opportunities to learn real life skills, in an environment where they can seek adventure, make sense of the physical world around them and enhance their well-being!

  • Autumn 1 - Daffodils - What if our lives never changed?

    Published 27/09/23, by Vicki Collett

    This half term, our topic is 'The History of Me!'. The children will be learning about themselves and their family members. They will also be looking at how their lives, and the lives of others, have changed over time. 

    The topic this half term will support the children's journey to self-discovery. This journey will equip the children with tools to make connections with others, celebrate differences, and be respectful and kind. These qualities are deeply rooted in our Rainbow Values and Rainbow Rules and will support the children to flourish into self-reflective individuals. 


    To explore our topic, we will be studying the following stories: 'Starting School' by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, 'Peepo' by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, 'When I was young' by James Dunbar and Martin Remphry and 'Mr Big' by Ed Vere.
