Year 1

Update for Week beginning : 16.10.2017

Please click the following link to access the presentation that we shared for parents at the start of the new term.  Year 1 September Information evening 2017-18

English and Maths information:


This week we have continued our Down in the Jungle project and have shared the story of ‘Monkey Puzzle’. The children created their own story map and have then used this to help them write sentences. They have been focusing on remembering their capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. We hope you enjoyed looking at their efforts during the project outcome on Wednesday.


This week we have focused on measuring. We have used non-standard units to measure different objects in the classroom. We then moved on to measuring in cm’s. We need a little more practice and measuring accurately!

Other curriculum news:

It was so lovely to see so many of you at the project outcome on Wednesday. We hope you enjoyed your trek through the jungle and seeing the amazing work that your children have completed this half term.

General Information:

We look forward to seeing the children back in school on Tuesday 31st October.

Thanks for all your support
