Class 1 Summer Term

WB 22nd May 2023

To celebrate and encourage reading of different texts, we are holding a sponsored read to raise money to purchase some up to date newly released children’s books for each class. These will be books that the children can choose to read themselves either in school or to bring home to read. Your child will bring home a reading challenge and sponsor form before the half term holiday. There will be 3 weeks to complete the challenge before sponsor forms are collected in on Monday 12th June. The teachers will talk to the children about this.

Week beginning 8.5.23

What a weekend! Its been great to hear all about the exciting things the children have done during our next bank holiday weekend; from picnics, and parties to fairs and carnivals.

This next few weeks, in class 1, we will be focussing on creating an extended piece of writing where we take Mrs Armitage on another surfing adventure. In math's, Year 2 are continuing to look at data including tallies and pictograms and Year 1 are exploring coins, notes and the total money they have spent.


A fabulous start to the week. The children have worked incredibly hard in their writing based on our current text. They have written some super independent writing, including consistent use of capital letters, full stops, adjectives and they are all working hard to ensure their work makes sense.

The children did some amazing investigating when beginning our topic about explorers. They studied an image of Christopher Columbus, made observations about when might have lived, if he was he rich or poor and also what he might have done for a job. The children will continue to learn about Columbus and then compare the lives of both past and present-day explorers of the world.
