In English this week we have been carrying on our learning about Charlie and his journey to Grandma's House. The children have been identifying nouns in the story and have begun their learning  on verbs and how they function in a sentence. On Friday we finished this unit of work with a long piece of writing; the children did some wonderful pieces of writing describing Charlie's story.  


This week in Maths we have tackled the tricky topic of tens and units. The children used both Base 10 and numicion to support their learning in differentiating between tens and units it double digit numbers. We continued this learning at the end of the week by exploring the difference between "tens" and "teen" numbers. Could you practice counting in tens at home?

Mary Secole

This week we began our learning about the marvellous Mary Secole and even had a magical visit from the lady herself who travelled back in time all the way to the Y1 base to answer this children's questions. The children acted as historians to discover who we were learning about and planned questions to ask our Mary Secole about who she was and how she influenced the modern nursing profession.


This week the children had their first philosophy lesson in Y1, we watched a short video as a stimulus and together formulated the philosophical question "what is friendship?". The children gave insightful and thoughtful responses to this question and shared some lovely thoughts about friendships they have both at home and at school. You can have a read through some of their responses attached below.
