What a great half term in Year 1!

We have had a great half term in Year 1 and the children have really enjoyed our project ‘Sensational Senses’. Over the last week, we have used our knowledge of painting to help us create ‘hues’ of purple to paint a turnip. We have also used our knowledge of the story, ‘The Enormous Turnip’ to help re-create it using water colours and collage.

In Maths, we have learnt about making numbers in different ways using a part-whole model and are now thinking about how to form addition and subtraction number sentences using the part-whole to help us.  We have loved retelling the story, ‘The Enormous Turnip’ and if you ask your child, they might re-enact it for you!


  • Please could you check your child’s jumpers as we have some missing. If you find that you have another child’s jumper at home, please return it to class. Could we also remind you to name all jumpers, cardigans, coats etc that come into school please.
  • Please could we remind you that water bottles should only contain water, but children with pack lunches may have juice as part of their pack lunch.
  • Over the coming weeks you will receive a piece of writing from your child’s book, ready for parents evenings, which your child will love sharing with you.

We would like to thank you for all your support this half term with your children.
