It has been a week full of inspiration in Year One. We have enjoyed learning about Amy Johnson and her achievements, being the first female to fly solo to Australia all of those years ago! The children have started to make fact files about her and origami aeroplanes. 

In Maths this week we have been using arrays for multiplication  and division. The children have persevered with this so well and it has really shone in their understanding today. I can see they are really becoming ready for life in Year Two! 

In RE we learned about the miracle where Jesus fed the 5000. We talked about how we could be more giving to others and I hope the children are trying to keep their promises. We have also enjoyed learning about the weather in the 4 seasons and the hours of daylight in each season. The children made and interpreted their pictogram to show their understanding. I wonder if they can tell you about the sunlight in the different seasons?

The children have produced some fantastic ariel paintings as if they were flying over Blackpool like Amy Johnson did. Feel free to pop in and have a look.


School trip reminders:
-Full school PE kit please - No jewelry, black joggers or shorts (no short and tight shorts please as any protective equipment that the children wear may rub on their skin!)
-Apply sun cream in the morning. Please do not bring sun cream to school as the children will not be taking bags on the day. Staff will take sun cream on the day.
-Hats - please bring a suitable sun hat as it is forecast to be very sunny!
-If your child is bringing their own lunch boxes please use a disposable bag - NO lunch boxes. 
We plan to have a go on the low ropes, go in the mole hole, do some orienteering and kids go wild - it should be a fantastic day and I am sure the children will represent our school beautifully.

Sports day is on Thursday 5th July and we hope to kick things off at around 9.30am! Please could all of the children come in full PE kit on this day (no earrings or jewelry and black PE joggers or black shorts). Again, please apply sun cream before school if required.

Have a fantastic weekend,
Miss Dixon and the Year One team.
