Bulwell St Mary's Primary and Nursery SchoolWhere Your Journey Begins


Welcome to 1B!


In our class, we are hardworking, we always try our best and we love to learn! I thought it would be fun to ask the children what they think about who we are as a class and these were some of their responses:

“We are great and awesome” - Kane and Cole

“We are beautiful and special!” – Kelly

“We work together as a team” – Jesse

“We are good people” – Ryan

“We are super stars!” – Edie

“We sit on the carpet beautifully.” – Tiffany

“We do great work!” – Connor


In year 1 last half term we were super busy; we had a rocket crash-land in our playground and aliens on the loose. Thankfully, we made wanted posters and the aliens returned to class. We were able to teach them all about Bulwell as we explored our local area. Then we found out lots of fab facts about the United Kingdom as we learnt about England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. We have been super brave and it has taken us a lot of courage, as last half term we started going swimming. Most of us love splashing about in the pool and learning new skills like floating and swimming on our front and back, some of us even wore shark fins and jumped in at the deep end! We loved learning the story “Handa’s Surprise” using talk for writing; we even wrote the story ourselves and made a fruit salad using all the fruits that Handa had in her basket. Some children thought the fruit salad was yummy, but others were not so keen.


Autumn 2

Welcome back after the half term holidays, we hope you had a great time. This half term is full of fun and excitement as we discover “What all the fuss is about.” In this topic we will be remembering all those that fought in the war for our country as we celebrate the Centenary. Our stunning start will be on Monday 12th November, the children are in for a real surprise as we begin to explore our new topic “The Great Fire of London.” We will end this half term with finding out about the true meaning of Christmas, counting down and celebrating Jesus’ birthday, by performing our very own KS1 Nativity to all you wonderful parents and carers.
