Carlton Junior and Infant School


Welcome to Year 1 

My name is Miss Hewitt and I am the new class teacher for Year 1.

Everyone at Carlton has made me feel extremely welcome, from parents and children, to staff.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the parents for their continued support. Myself and the children have had a fantastic start in Year 1, and very much look forward to the rest of the year.

Every week this class page will be updated with photos and examples of work from the children, so that you can see exactly what your children are learning.



This week we have been very busy in Year 1. In English we continued with our angry looking snowman, but this week we have looked at writing story openers for a story based on his character. The children really enjoyed using openers like ‘Once upon a time’ and ‘A long time ago’. The end of the week was a busy day dressing up for National Christmas Jumper day. The support from Year 1 was fantastic, well done. We then headed to the fair where all the children had a bounce on the bouncy castle which was lots of fun.

We have another busy week in the run up to the holidays.




This week the children have been looking at using adjectives to describe the character in their story. When using adjectives, the children think about their five senses to help come up with fantastic descriptive words. The children have also been learning this week about the prefix –un. They then tried to use the –un words they had learnt in describing their snowman. They came up with words such as: unhappy, unstable and unfriendly.




This week in Year 1, I have uploaded some pictures from the Bikeability afternoon the children had chance to participate in. They all really enjoyed their afternoon.

The children have been on an Autumn walk this week to look at the changes in Autumn and Winter which is our Science topic at the moment. We found lots of red, brown and orange leaves, as well as discovering a nest high in a tree.

In the children’s topic, they have been looking at houses around the world. There are pictures of the children using different materials to make igloos, houses from Antarctica.
