Year 1 are jumping mad!

This week in Year 1 we have been practising our jumps, by counting on using a number line! We thought about how important it was to count our jumps carefully and had a go at answering a range of problems, involving mermaids, unicorns, footballers and trains! In English, we have been learning a story about a lizard called Otherwise. Ask your child to re-tell it to you! Everybody looked really bright and colourful today dressed in their non-uniform for comic relief: thank you for your kind donations. We enjoyed a great ‘Danceathon’ in the hall, but didn’t quite manage 24 hours like Tess and Claudia!

We look forward to seeing you on Monday or Wednesday for the Early Years parent’s evenings

World Book Day and the GFoL Exhibition: an exciting week in Year 1!

We have had a super-busy couple of days in Year 1! We all loved dressing up for World Book Day and thoroughly enjoyed meeting the author Simon James. He talked to us about his most famous book, Baby Brains, and drew a special picture for us to keep on the flip chart. During the morning, the Year 4 children also came up to share some books with us, which was another lovely experience. On Friday we held our much-anticipated Great Fire of London exhibition, showcasing all the wonderful examples of Home Learning that the children have been working on. We were visited by classes in Year 2, 3 and 5 and everyone was enormously impressed, both by the children’s knowledge and the effort that had gone into the Home Learning. Well done Year 1 – we are very proud of you.
