OFSTED Inspection: We have received the results of our recent inspection. Read the outcome letter here. »

Year 1

Update for Week beginning : 10.07.17


In English, the children had to solve a mystery as when they entered the classroom they found sandy footprints, a mobile phone, body board and towels! They all used their imagination to write about why they thought these things had been abandoned!

After our Beach trip on Wednesday, the children were able to write a fantastic recount of the day.


In Maths, we have learnt to recognise, find and name a quarter of a quantity. We have also looked at the value of different coins and added them together to make different amounts. Please continue to practise counting in 5’s to 50 and count backwards in 1’s from 100.

Other curriculum news:

Thank  you to all our wonderful parents for helping on the trip, we hope you had as much fun as we did! Look out for a post on the school website next week with more information and photos from our day.

General Information:

Please can we remind you to send in any reading books or library books from home ASAP. Next week your child will need to bring in a carrier bag with their name on in order for them to bring work home. This can either be of the 5p variety or a long life bag.  Please also remember to send your child into school with a named water bottle everyday as many children seem to be without one this week!
