This term we have focused on creating our own non-profit businesses with an aim to understanding income, profit, sales and advertising. We created our own products, pitched to investors and sold our products at our Charity Enterprise Fair to 3OB and 4CL. We raised 4690thb for Shrewsbury supported charities, such as The Mercy Centre which we visited last term, and learnt so much in the process!
We can’t believe that we have finally reached the last week of Year 1! How time flies!
We started the week with the fantastic Toy Story themed swim gala and were so impressed with the children’s skills and confidence in the water.
In Maths, we have been solving problems linked to capacity and weight and comparing objects using the language heavier, lighter, heaviest and lightest.
In Literacy, we composed letters to our new teachers, telling them about ourselves and our interests. We used our best handwriting and thought carefully about our spelling, so we know they will be impressed!
The Fairy Tale Ball this week was a perfect end to what has been a jam-packed, fun-filled year and we are amazed at what talented dancers we have in Year One! The children looked beautiful in their costumes and we would like thank the Year One parent representatives for all their hard work in making this event happen. The children had a fantastic time!
We would also like to take this opportunity to say how unbelievably proud we are of all that the children have achieved this year. They are all more than ready for the exciting challenges Year 2 will bring and we wish them every success and happiness for the future.
A huge thank you for all your support over the year-we are so grateful!
Have a restful and happy holiday!
The Year 1 Team.
Over the last few days, 4LP have worked incredibly hard to produce their own ‘Shaky Hand Testers.’ They chose a theme for their design which they thought was suitable for children in Year 2. It took resilience and trial and error to finally make all of the components work! 4LP then visited 2JG so that the Year 2’s could test out our electronic design. We were very impressed with the younger children’s determination and it was also very pleasing to see the children in 4LP interact with the Year 2’s in such a considerate way.
After designing and making an electric circuit, formed into a “shaky hand tester”, 4CL headed down to test the steadiness of the hands in 2KP! There were some record breaking speeds recorded, and some very steady hands!
After weeks of designing, organising, budgeting, creating and making, the day of the charity fair finally arrived!
We welcomed Year 3 and 4 into our class to buys our brilliant products and we raised lots of money for a super charity, which is very close to our hearts.
Well done everyone!
4AW tested out their shaky hand testers in year 2 today. It was wonderful to see all the circuits work, and a lot of fun was had by all. Year 2 gave us some useful feedback about enjoyment and how we could improve.

It’s been another fun filled and busy week in Year 1! We went to 7 Eleven which was a huge success. The children loved having their own money to spend and they did a fantastic job of adding the different amounts together and working out what they could buy. This was such a valuable experience for the children as they put all of their Maths learning into practise in a real life situation. We are so proud of how sensible and mature all of the children were when choosing and paying for their snacks. They even asked for no plastic bags and used their backpacks instead!
We have been busily practising our dances for the Fairy Tale Ball all week and can’t wait to perform to you next Thursday! We have also been making crowns using ribbon and gems as part of our Design and Technology learning.
In Literacy we have been changing the story of Jack and the Beanstalk to include some of our own, creative ideas. The children have designed a new front cover for the story and have written a blurb for their new versions of the story.
In Maths the children have been continuing their learning on position and direction. They have been working together to solve a variety of problems and have made good progress in being resilient and improving their collaboration skills. We started learning about capacity and volume this week and the children solved a range of problems, using the correct mathematical vocabulary to help them.
The children visited their new Year 2 classes today. They had a wonderful time and are looking forward to next year already!
We hope you have a restful weekend ready for the final week of Year 1.
Thank you for your continued support,
The Year 1 Team
Children were excited today to meet their new teachers…it really doesn’t seem like a whole year since we first met them ourselves! We wish all our students the very best for next year.
In Literacy, we have linked back to our residential visit through writing our own recounts about our experience. These recounts have been written up on to Book Creator and will hopefully be a great reminder of children’s first residential experience.
In Numeracy, we have completed our learning on capacity. Some classes have also designed a Kahoot quiz to test their understanding. Why not try your child’s quiz at home!
In Science we carried out a fair test to see which materials conduct electricity and which are insulators. We learnt a valuable lesson about staying out of water if there is lightning nearby. During Art, we began building our shaky hand testers, thinking about our choice of colours and design to appeal to our Year 2 audience. Once these are complete, we will take them to year 2 to try!
Have a great weekend!
