Week 2...

We've had another busy week in year 1. We've done lots of writing this week including writing captions for pictures and lists. In maths we've been finding one more and one less than numbers and practicing our backwards counting! In art we looked at sketching a toy and we've sorted objects and materials in science. We had a lovely day on Friday raising money for Macmillan including designing our own cupcakes! Have a look at some of our designs below.


Things to note:

  • PE is on Tuesdays and Fridays. On these days please send your child into school in their PE kit. 
  • Please make sure your child has wellies in school everyday for play times on the field
  • The children have the opportunity to read in school every day so please make sure their books and reading diaries are in school every day. We will try to check the reading diaries daily. If your child needs their book changing please put a note in their reading diary.
  • Water bottles should be brought to school daily. Please make sure these are named.  
  • Please make sure all jumpers and book bags are named.
