Such a busy week!

Wow, we have managed to squeeze in so much this week.

Thank you so much to everyone who came and looked at the children’s books after school this week, we hope you enjoyed looking at their amazing work.

Thank you again to everyone who attended our fathers day liturgy. It was lovely to hear how loved and amazing year Ones daddies are. A special thank you to Miss Keogh for helping us.

ANOTHER thank you for all of the kind cake donations for our Year One cake sale today. We will keep you updated on how much we raise- fingers crossed it will be enough to adopt our very own polar bear!

Looking forward to our carnival day tomorrow, we can’t wait to show off our amazing Arctic learning.

Just a reminder- sports day has been provisionally moved to July 1st.

Have a lovely weekend

So much learning!

In science we have been focusing on life cycles of animals and insects. We have been watching our caterpillars transform through their lifecycle. It has been very exciting! Finally they have turned in to beautiful butterflies. We all waved them goodbye as we released them  in to the air.

In History we have been learning about the great fire of London. We received a history box from a museum full of artefacts and dressing up. We learnt so much from all of the amazing things inside.


We have loved celebrating D-day. We have been watching the planes fly over the playground on their way to Portsmouth and watching videos of the red arrows. We have created medals for all of the brave soldiers who fought for us.


Book look- 3pm-4pm Monday 17th/ Tuesday 18th June

Year One Liturgy- Tuesday 18th June at 10:00.

Year One cake sale- Thursday 20th June on the south play ground after school.

This week in year one we begun our new topic,  London!  We will be learning about London now and in the past. In History we have begun to explore the events of The Great Fire of London. The children have already leant lots of facts and should be able to tell you all about it.

In maths we have been focusing on writing number names and days of the week.  Next week we will be learning about positional language. The children will follow and give instructions using whole, half, quarter and three quarter turns.


Our whole school carnival is on June 21st, Year 1 are focusing on the Arctic. Turtles will be Penguins and Puffer Fish will be Polar Bears. Therefore please can Tutle class dress in black clothing and Puffer Fish in white clothing. Please do not buy anything new, clothing with logo’s on is fine.  Watch out for some parent mails about our upcoming cake sale, which will will be holding to raise money for WWF.

Our next liturgy is on 18th of June at 10am, family and friends are always welcome!

The 17th and 18th June are also opportunities for you to come into school to look at all of the fantastic learning that your child has done over the year.

Thank you

Year 1 Team
