Jays - Year 1

Welcome to Jays!

I would like to welcome you all to our class page. Each half term I will upload the overview of learning for that half term and also a copy of the latest newsletter. I will aim to update this page every 2 weeks so you can see the learning we have been under taking. 

My door is always open if you have any questions or problems please do not hesitate to see me. However, this is often easier at the end of the day. If it is important, please catch me in the morning. 

Miss Webb, Mrs Mcveigh, Mrs Irvine and Mrs Ascough.

Curriculum overview - Summer 2

Happy Easter!


What a fantastic half term it has been. The children have worked harder than ever and the progress they are making is incredible. Thank you for your continued support this half term and I look forward to seeing you all after a fun Easter break. Don't eat too many eggs. 


Our last 2 days have been so much fun. We discussed about how some materials change when heated and cooled and used this information to make our own rice crispy cakes. We then went on an Easter Egg hunt around the playground and got a delicious chocolate lollipop as a prize. Below are some of the pictures.


World Book Day.


What a super day! The children looked fantastic in their costumes (THANK YOU!) and they were eager to tell us all about their character and the story it came from. 

We had lots of fun writing a book review from our recent library book and then took a visit to the school library to change our books. 


Thank you for helping us all look so amazing! 


Below are the 3 book reviews that won a prize for fantastic work. 


World Book Day.


What a fantastic end to our first week back. 

Due to the wind yesterday we were unable to visit Addlestone library to change our books so today we visited the school library. 

We have our own special codes which we got to use on the computer. We chose our books, scanned them onto the computer and then typed in our special numbers. We now have school library books that need to be returned to school by Thursday 2nd February. 

Jays Newsletter Autumn 1


Wow what a busy day it has been in Jays. Today we started our day with some special quizzes in maths. The children were absolutely fantastic and even though they were tricky, we didn't give up. 


We then went to Owls to watch a mini performance about their learning this half term. Jays are such a pleasure and were incredibly supportive to the children in Owls. I am sure you are extremely proud of them all, just as I am for their attitude and support to other children.


Finally, we ended our day with an open day for our parents. It was an absolute pleasure to have you all in the classroom to join in with your children's learning. I must admit, I was overwhelmed by the support you all showed today and it meant a lot to both the children and myself to have you in. Thank you for coming to join us and we hope you had as much as we did.


I wish you all a happy, relaxed and fun half term break. :-). 

It has been a busy half term in Jays so far this half term.

In English, we have been working so hard on our writing and we are building up to writing our own version of Jack and the Beanstalk.

This week we created our own Giants. We used adjectives to describe the giant and thought hard about what he would look like, how he would act and what he would wear.  


Shapes everywhere!

We began our week by recapping our knowledge of 2D shapes. We looked at the properties of the shapes (sides and corners) and decided that a 2D shape was a flat shape. 

Once our knowledge was secure, we began looking at 3D shapes. We looked around our school environment to find 3D shapes and then began to name them. Finally, we made our own 3D shapes. Some of us used playdough to model, focusing on faces, edges and corners. The rest of us used magnetic blocks to build the frame of 3D shapes. Here we are hard at work.
