Year 1 – Chaplin Class

Week beginning:  10th July


Hello everyone,

The children have been working very hard on their end of year assessments and we are very proud of their achievements. Two weeks to go and we still have lots to cover!


What is happening this week?


Literacy/Science- The children will be completing their non-fiction books about materials. This week they will be researching plastic and glass.


Maths -  The children will be counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. They will also be completing multiplication activities based on the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. 


Design and Technology - Last week the children designed a toy to make as part of their design and technology project. They created many wonderful designs, including cars, puppets and ball games. This week, the children will begin making them! We hope they will be ready for our Arts Showcase.



Important dates for your diaries

Friday 14th July (afternoon) - Arts Showcase (get ready to help the children make a puppet!)

Thursday 20th July - party day (information to follow)



Please can you send in water bottles and sunhats during the warm weather. It gets very hot in the classroom and it is really useful for the children to have their water bottles on the tables with them whilst they are working.  

We are not able to help the children put on sun cream and therefore, it would be a great help if you could put this on your child before the start of school. 


With the end of year in sight, we also have a lot of un-named lost property in the classroom. Please pop in and see if you recognise any items!


With best wishes,


Claire Ransom and the Year 1 Team
