Year 1 have had an extremely busy Summer 1 term! They have developed their writing skills in English through a variety of texts and creative writing opportunities, learnt about money and practiced their multiplication skills in maths, discovered why Shabbat is important to Jewish children and explored creating different types of art work in the style of different artists! 

In amongst all of this, we have also found time to visit the Roald Dahl museum,  complete an investigation in Science week and take part in a trust wide History day, exploring The Battle of Hastings and William the Conqueror! We also shared a reading breakfast with our grown ups, thanks to all those who were able to come along this time.

Lots of fantastic and interesting learning opportunities for all the children!
