Information for Parents

Please note that the weekly timetable is subject to change. I have attached a list of 100 high frequency words for children in Year 1 to learn. Learning these can be part of additional homework to support the children's ongoing development. They will not be tested on these until the end of the school year.

Gruffalo Pizzas

This week the children have enjoyed designing and making their own Gruffalo pizzas. They thought carefully about the ingredients needed, how to write their own instructions and afterwards evaluated their products. They were yummy!

Paul Klee

We have been learning about the famous artist, Paul Klee and studying his artwork. We have looked at the colour wheel and discovered that he liked to use either cool, warm or neutral colours. We created abstract owls inspired by our work on Paul Klee. Can you guess if we used cool, warm or neutral oil pastels?
