Week 1st-5th July 2019
This week in literacy we have been finishing our storyboards of 'the colourful butterfly' and editing our writing.
In maths have been working out routes for a pirate to travel to the treasure  by following the instructions on a map.
What wonderful weather we have had! We have had a great time in the pool getting ready for the swimming gala next week.
The children have completed their 'Starry Night' artwork based on Van Gough's painting.
Here are some pictures showing what we have been up to!
The children have been presenting their projects to the class, which are amazing!  We hope to see the rest of them next week. Homework this week is to finish off the project if you haven't done so already!
Next week the gala is on Tuesday morning from 9.20am and please remember our trip to Wagamamas on Thursday 11th, the children will need to be in school a little earlier by 8.30am please.
Many thanks!
The Year 1 team.
Week 15th-19th July 2019
We have had a really exciting run up to the end of term.
The children swam fantastically well in the Swimming Gala last Tuesday and the atmosphere was great.  We have been having some fun sessions in the pool this week, a great way to cool off!
Last Thursday we went to Wagamamas for our summer term trip.  The children were great! They really enjoyed making their own juice, preparing their lunch - a katsu curry and eating it! They also learned how to use chopsticks, which was a challenge!  Most of all they learned about healthy eating and eating well.  They had the opportunity to try lots of sauces with their lunch and some even tried seaweed, which they said was delicious!
Friday's Sports Day went really well and the children go stuck into all the activities and races.  We hope you all enjoyed the afternoon too!
Have a look at the pictures to see what we've been up to.
As the summer term draws to a close, we would all like to thank you for your kind support over the last year.  It really has been an absolute pleasure to teach your children and we will really miss them, but we know they are very much ready to move onto exciting times in year 2! We wish them all the best of luck and you all a very happy and relaxing summer break.
