Willow - Year 1

Date: 19th July 2024

What we have been learning this week...

We worked really hard this week finishing off our final phonics unit.  The children were very determined as they learned some very tricky sounds.  It was also really lovely to look back at all of the work we have been doing over the year and seeing how far we have come.  In Maths, we completed our topic on money and practised counting in 2s, 5s and 10s using coins.  We also finished our History topic on kings and queens. 

Activities we have enjoyed this week...

It was wonderful to have some time in the swimming pool, given how hot it has been.  We also had a very lovely last day in which we had our very emotional leavers' assembly, our whole school picnic and a class party.  The children were very excited, and it was a happy last day together in Willow Class. 

How you can help...

It would be great to continue reading as much as possible over the summer so that the children can keep up their reading skills ready for a new start in September!



There were no certificates this week. 

Next week, we are looking forward to...

Next week, will be enjoying the first week of our summer holidays! Wishing you a wonderful and restful summer break!
