Fallow - Year 1

Welcome to the Fallow Page




Welcome to Fallow class! This term our topic will be looking at the question, 'Who was the best Queen - Queen Victoria or Queen Elizabeth I?'  We will start off the term by focussing on working scientifically and looking at weather. Then, in our art learning journey will be looking at sketching and printing.  To get ahead in these, look at our Knowledge Organisers! After the February half term, we are kicking off with our R.E week, where we will be learning about Christianity. We will be finishing off the term by getting stuck into our learning about the lives of Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth I. How exciting!


Reading in Fallow Class consists of independent reading and guided reading. Please ensure that your child has their home reading books and reading diary in their book bag each day. Reading at home is greatly encouraged in Fallow Class – we love anything from comic books, magazines, library books to information books and we’d love to hear about any reading your child has been doing!

Every Monday morning from 8.45 to 9.00am, our classroom is open for reading time with parents and carers. We’d love to see you there.


On top of reading and your child’s high frequency words, we will hand out topic-based homework tasks to complete on a fortnightly-basis.  If your child completes all their tasks before this, please just ask and I will be happy to think of some more to keep them busy!


Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit in school all week so that they are prepared for any timetable changes, and that this includes suitable clothing for both indoor and outdoor activities. This includes both well-fitting plimsolls and trainers. 


Please feel free to get in touch by catching me at the end of the day or contacting me by email at any time if you wish to discuss any concerns about your child’s progress. However, if you have a worry or message at the beginning of the school day, please pass the message onto the adult on the door or the office, as our lessons will begin at 8.45am. 


Thank you,


Mrs Matthews

The Spangled Pandemonium

We have had great fun looking at the poem, The Spangled Pandemonium, and have drawn our own ideas of what it would look like! You can see a super example below.

A Busy Term Of Sport

We have really enjoyed learning new sports this term. The children had the opportunity to learn the Paralympic sport of Boccia with Carl from Inspire+ and have been playing indoor hockey with Mr Togher.

It's Christmas!

The end of term was lots of fun. It was wonderful to see the children perform in our Christmas production of the Nativity. They did a brilliant job! The last day began with our Christingle celebration where two children from the class carefully carried a lit candle into the hall as the choir sang 'Away in a Manger'.  Afterwards, we were so excited when Santa joined us during our party and I was very proud of them all when we joined the rest of the school for the Christmas singalong.

RE Week - Sukkot

This year, our focus in RE week was one of the World's major religions, Judaism. We had the opportunity to recreate an important festival to help the children understand a different faith and culture.


The festival of Sukkot celebrates the gathering of the harvest and commemorates the sheltering of the Israelites in the wilderness. The main objective of the holiday is to build a Sukkah, a small temporary shelter which provides shade while allowing those inside of it to see the sky. The children really enjoyed gathering the materials and building their very own Sukkahs!


There are more photos in the Photo Gallery.

Putting Out The Fire!

We were so excited to welcome members of the Grantham Fire Service to Belmont to talk to the children about fire safety. We had great fun learning about the fire engine and were able to climb inside and then have a go using the hose!

The Great Fire Of London

The children have produced some wonderful artwork on our topic of the Great Fire of London.

Reading Time!

We love our weekly reading time with family and friends to help us!

London Landmarks

We have been learning about London this term and the children have made some great models of some of the famous buildings.
