The excitement is building in Year 1 as we are getting closer to our show date! We have been practising hard and are so looking forward to performing to you next week. Just a reminder that the the Year One show will start at 8am in the Memorial Hall on Thursday 23rd May. We hope you can make it and we can’t wait to entertain you! Please could we ask for your support in ensuring your child arrives at school by 7.30am each day next week, so that the children can get ready for their performances in plenty of time. 
In Literacy we have been writing our letters to Percy the Park Keeper, trying to include all the features we’ve learned about. We also then edited our letters to see if we could improve them. 
In Maths, we have been focusing on subtraction. We have been using a range of strategies and equipment to help us such as tens frames, part whole models, number lines and Base 10 blocks. 
In Science, we have been learning to name and label the different parts of flowers and trees. Next week we will be doing some actual planting of seeds and recording our plant’s growth, which we are very excited about. 
In Art, the children have been revisiting their sunflower drawings and continuing to improve and add detail to them. 
We hope you have a restful and relaxing weekend, ahead of Year One’s Bee Musical extravaganza next week!
