Class 1 Gallery of Glory!

We have high expectations of all children but nothing blows us away more than those children who exceed them. Look at our amazing reception children learning, using and applying their ‘chatty friend’s the split diagraphs. Amazing work!

Mrs Partridge is so proud of her phonics group as they work together to read their first ever ditties. Bravo!

Our year 1 children have been working hard on ordering and comparing numbers to 20. They loved writing on the tables too.

Making repeated patterns is so much fun. How many different patterns can the children make using two or more colours. Brilliant work reception children.

We had so much fund celebrating Chinese New Year. The children got crafty, wrote beautifully and even got to try some chinese food thanks to Mae at Jasmine House in Melton Mowbray.

Meet the next JK Rowling and David Walliams!

We have an extraordinary class of young readers and writers here at Pochin Primary. Just look at their amazing writing and reading skills.


What better way to enjoy the snow than to be outside and investigate. Why does the snow stick to some clothes and not others? What does a snowflake actually look like? We even practised writing in the snow.

Thank you PTA

Thank you to our PTA for buying some wonderful resources for class one. We love them!

Numbers with Numicon

Our reception children have been using Numicon to make numbers to 5. How many different ways did they find?

Splendid shapes

Year 1 have been exploring 3D shapes. They have been learning the names and properties. They then sorted the shapes according to their properties. They even had fun combining shapes to make different structures.

Amazing morning work!

Our reception children have been working hard on their number formation. Check out these super stars!!!

Children in Need

The children had a fabulous time about why we have dress up for Children in Need and what the charity does to support children. The children also enjoyed the activities linked to the day.

Thank you!

A HUGE thank you to the parent who donated all of the dressing up costumes. The children has a great time dressing up, role playing and singing along to Disney songs dressed as their favourite characters.

Human number line

The best way to learn about a number line is to be the number line. Year 1 loved the practical side of maths this week.


The year one children turned their hand to computer programming this week and learned how to programme a beebot.

Black History Month

The children had a fabulous time learning all about Mae Jemison. They drew portraits, coloured images and even wrote what they would take with them on a journey to space.


This week the children have been immersing themselves in all things fireworks. The children have created some wonderful artwork. Year one, have been preparing to write descriptive firework poetry and towards the end of the week, the children made and decorated firework biscuits.

PE with Aarti

Aarti Lakhani came to deliver the first of her mindful PE sessions this week. She focussed on the Pochin value, Kindness. The children had a wonderful time exploring mindfulness through story and dance. Thank you Aarti.

The children had a wonderful celebrating Diwali together. They learned about Diwali, listened to the story of Rama and Sita, made cards for their loved ones, created mehndi patterns, dressed up and made Diva lamps.

Beaumanor Hall – 2022

The children had a wonderful time at Beaumanor Hall exploring their senses.

In Autumn 1, the EYFS children spent time getting to know one another through play. They began learning their set one speed sounds, learned to write these letters too and also began to read simple CVC (consonant vowel consonant) words. The children had fun accessing all the continuous provision activities available.

The year one children have been learning about traditional tales. We used role play and drama to help develop vocabulary and teach the children how to sequence the story. This helped them become confident writers when it was time to put pencil to paper.

This Summer Term we are learning about growing. We shall be planting seeds, learning about The Enormous Turnip and Oliver’s vegetables as well as looking at the beautiful flowers and plants around us. We have looked at measures and worked with numbers up to twenty. We shall be spending lots of time in our new school garden as well as watching ourselves grow as well. To support Mental Health Awareness week we made 3D gardens. Class 1 have  been spotted doing some amazing reading too. The children also completed a Walk-a-thon to raise money for our new school garden and enjoyed a delicious ice cream in the garden as their reward! As a fun afternoons, we were also treated to a drumming session and a dance workshop. What a busy half term!

During the Spring Term we adventured through the world of Fairy Tales, learning about Goldilocks, The Gingerbread Man and Jack and the Beanstalk. We also explored the exciting world around us. The class also celebrated The Chinese New Year, Mother’s Day and raised money for Red Nose Day.
