Year 1

Update for Week beginning : 19.06.17


In English this week, the children have enjoyed sharing The Rainbow Fish story. At the start of the week they sequenced the events and acted out the story, each child playing a different character. These pieces were fantastic! The children also wrote story mountains to sort the events into the beginning, middle and end. We also spoke about how a story has a build-up, problem and resolution.


At the start of the week, our Maths focus was fractions. We revisited how to find a quarter of a shape, group of objects and quantity (number). The children understand that each quarter must be equal. Towards the end of the week children recorded in seconds how long it takes to do something. They used stop watches to time each other doing an activity for example; 10 hops, 10 star jumps and throwing a bean bag 10 times.

Other curriculum news:

Well done to all the children who took part in the Talent Show auditions on Thursday. We are waiting for the results!

Another well done, to Otter class who delivered a lovely, thoughtful worship on Trust. The children worked well as a team and we were really proud of the outcome.

General Information:

A reminder it is the school Summer fayre on Saturday 24th June 11am-2pm. We hope to see many of you there.

If you would like to order  class photo order forms have gone out today (Friday 23rd).

Thank you.
