Thought For The Week!

Any more suggestions Year 1?

Selsdon Primary School and Nursery


We have an extra special TFTW this week! It’s more of a competition than a thought, but it’ll definitely require everyone to think really hard and get their brains in gear.

As of next term, we’re going to change the house names to reflect the heroes and role models for our children across both our schools. This will not affect your house colours/PE t-shirts, which will remain the same, but you will have some funky new house names!

So, the rules for your suggestions are:

  • The person must be a hero or role model linked to the curriculum.
    • Examples are a writer, poet, scientist, mathematician or sportsperson. But it could be related to any subject you learn in school.
  • You must provide a reason for your choice, tell us why they are a role model to children and what they have done to earn this place.
  • Either leave a comment on the blog…

Homework for Christmas

book review

For homework over the Christmas holidays we would like you to write a book review of something you read while you were at home. We will send home with you all a template you could use which gives you an idea of the kind of things to include in a book review. What was the book called? Who wrote it? Who were the main characters? Did you like it? Why or why not? You can write your review or perhaps record it for posting on the blog.

Poor Stick Man!

Today in Squirrel class we continued with our learning in English by thinking of other situations that the Stick Man might end up in. In the book he was used by a dog to play fetch, used by a child for a snowman’s arm, as a boomerang, a pen, and a piece of firewood!

We came up with a few ideas of our own and drew pictures of Stick Man. We had him as part of a Christmas tree, mistaken for a cricket bat, used as a ruler, and mistaken for a reindeer antler, to name a few!



A Big Thank You


Thank you so much to all of you who were able to make it to our Christmas Songs Show yesterday. The children worked incredibly hard to learn the songs and actions and absolutely loved performing them to you. We were incredibly proud of them and know you will have been too.

The Year 1 team.
