Weekly Note – w/c 22.5.17

Dear parents/carers


Next week in maths we are revisiting addition strategies, including adding 3 numbers together.



We have now begun a new literacy unit using the text ‘Handa’s Surprise.’ This week children have enjoyed tasting and describing different fruits and we have been learning the text using a story map and actions.



Just a reminder about the swimming swap next week:

Mrs Boscher’s Class will be swimming on Monday 22nd May at 9am (usually Mrs Bramley’s Class’s time) and Mrs Bramley’s Class will be swimming at 9am on Thursday 25th May (usually Mrs Boscher’s Class time).

Please could children bring their swimming kit on these days instead of their usual swimming day, just for next week. If you usually come and help, or are able to help with swimming please could you let your child’s teacher know if you are able to help with this change of date.


Sun hats, sun cream and coats!

Could we please ask that all children have a sun hat in school every day. The weather is very changeable at the moment and we have had some cloudy and dull mornings which have turned into very hot afternoons.  All hats should be clearly named and can be kept in their tray.

Equally, some warm mornings turn chilly and rainy.  Please could children bring coats to school so that they are prepared for a drizzly lunch hour and can still play outside during our outdoor learning sessions if they wish.



On Tuesdays could trainers be brought to school for our afternoon lesson but not worn to school. Children should still wear their usual black school shoes in the morning.


Half Term

Just a reminder that the week beginning the 29th May is Half Term. We look forward to seeing the children back on Monday 5th June.


Many thanks

Year 1 team
