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



Welcome to 1B


We are a friendly bunch of eager learners.  We work hard and support one another on our learning journey.  We are learning that it is ok to make mistakes and that it is important to give things your best shot and have a go.

Phonics is really important to us as we develop our reading and writing skills and we enjoy daily phonics sessions to support us read and write in all areas of the curriculum.


This half term our topic theme is ‘Our Wonderful World’.  We are learning all about our different families and cultures – investigating our heritages on UK and world maps.  We’re exploring cold places as we observe seasonal changes and our position in the world.  We are looking at the United Kingdom and the four countries that make it.  We’re thinking about the value of honesty and how important this is in our everyday lives.

We love listening to stories and retelling them and this half term we are focussing on developing our story writing skills so we can share them with others, both in Foundation 2 and with our ‘Reading Partners’ in Year 6!


Here’s some ways you could have fun learning at home:

Phonics games:

Share stories at home every night – choose a chapter book and read it together. 

Listen to stories read by other members of your family.

Go on a Winter walk and spot signs of Winter.

As the nights draw in, play board games together!
