Farewell to Year 1!

19 Jul 2017

We have had a lovely final week together so far! We have been looking back at our favourite memories of year 1 and writing a lovely memory page. In literacy we looked at adjectives we can use to describe how amazing we are! We discussed synonyms and which adjectives fit when talking about a person. In art we designed and created individual class shields that represent us and our class. In maths we have been solidifying all of our amazing year 1 knowledge with our own maths booklets. 

Today we will be doing a games day with Year 2 which will be a lot of fun! 

Also the children will be coming home with all their maths books and learning journals and anything that has been left behind in the cloakroom so expect Leiden down children!


TOMORROW - is Sports Day. Children can come to school in their PE kit. It starts at 10:30 under the railway bridge on the common. There will be a whole school picnic lunch at 12 which everyone is invited to. (Remember to pack a packed lunch and lots of water!) You are then more than welcome to take your children home. No worries at all if you can't we will be heading back to school to carry on th fun and games!

FRIDAY - certificate assembly starts at 9:15 and the school day ends at 2.

Wild weather!

The penultimate week of Year 1 has flown by!

We had a lovely WOW day yesterday learning all about weather forecasts. We created our own maps of the UK and weather symbols and this afternoon we will be filming them! So be sure to check out the blog tomorrow to watch them!​ This week in Maths we have looked at division by sharing and grouping and have used lots of objects to help us visualise the number sentence. In Literacy we have continued with our letter writing and have written a range of letters. We wrote one to Reception to tell them all about life in Year 1 and a letter to somebody in another country to let them know all about what the weather is like in this country. In Science this week we tested the properties of many objects such as wellies, tin cans, elastic bands and tables! We checked to see if they were opaque or transparent, waterproof or not waterproof, bendy or not bendy.

Next week on Tuesday after school we would love you to join us for a picnic on the common! Please bring any snacks or food you want and a picnic blanket! We will bring some ball games!

Thursday next week is sports day. It is from 10:30 - 12. We will then be eating our lunch on the common, feel free to join us! You are then free to take your children home if you want to!

Friday next week is the end of term assembly which commences at 9:15. You will not be able to take the children home straight after the assembly. Pick up is at 2pm.

Please can the children bring in a plastic bag on Monday so that we can start filling it up with all the lovely work they can take home!



We are almost at the end of a fantastic year! Your homework this week is to reflect on your year, thinking about all the fun things we have done. What has been your favourite subject? What friends have you made? What was your favourite school trip?​

This week please could you practise spelling these high frequency words…

animals next first never work

Can you find any of these words in your reading book?

Next Wednesday is our Geography ‘WOW’ Day where we will be recording our very own weather forecasts! In preparation for this, could you watch the weather forecast this weekend and find out what the weather is going to be like in different parts of the country, for example, in London, Newcastle, Southampton etc. What key things does the weather reporter tell us?​
