Crick Primary School

Learning together in a caring community

Welcome to our class page for Year One.

Mrs Faupel and Mrs Rhodes are our class teachers.

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Hardbattle and Mrs Fisher.


Important Notices

We are very fortunate to have a specialist Kwik Cricket coach teaching the children this term. Please make sure they have suitable outdoor kit each Tuesday this term. 


Please remind your child to drink water in school to keep hydrated this term. We want the children to drink regularly and encourage them to take ownership of this. We will remind them throughout the day. 


As the weather is warming up, a sun hat will be needed in school. Please name this. 

Please ensure all your child's uniform and PE kit is named so that it can be returned swiftly to them. 






Turrets and Tiaras


We will start our term on Christmas Day, 1066 when William the Conqueror became king. Over the next few weeks, we will discover what life was really like inside the old castle walls in Warwick. Castles were busy places full of kings, queens, knights, jesters, cooks and servants and it will be our challenge to find out as much as we can about them. 



Here is our termly class newsletter which gives you an overview of many of the subjects.

If you have any questions or would like further information then please do not hesitate to ask us. 



Have you tried logging on to Purple Mash? The site has a wealth of games to try. 

Help your child to learn to tell the time (o'clock, half past)

Help them learn to double and halve numbers mentally. 



Can you listen to the videos and join in?

Outdoor Education 

We loved having a campfire outside and we made works of art based on the work of Andy Goldsworthy.

 We investigated what materials shoes are made out of and why those materials are used. We had a go at making shoes out of newspaper and talked about why newspaper is not a good material to use for shoes! 

History and Geography

On our walk around the village we looked at old and new houses. We designed our own maps of the village and added physical and human features. 

Did you know there used to be a sweet shop and a garage in Crick? 

Here are some suggestions of how to help your child at home.
